Just returned from a short walk with my wife and daughter to drop off our absentee ballots here in Costa Mesa. There was some rain this morning, so the ground is wet and the trees are dripping, but it’s blue skies now. There was no line (it’s mid-morning; everyone is at work) but all the machines were in use. We just dropped off our sealed envelopes, watched the poll worker drop them into the large cardboard box, and got our stickers.

All pretty normal, but the poll worker was probably 18. So were two of the other volunteers, in addition to the four senior citizens who are there normally. It was an interesting–and revealing–Change.
