Election Day


The fall colors are lovely this year on my street, far overpowering the tiny election sign which reminds us to get out and vote today. I haven’t been nearly as enthusiastic about voting for oh, about the last six years or so.

I don’t vote so much for a candidate as I’m voting against the other one. I’ll be voting against someone today as well as against further governmental encroachment on private matters between men and women, between men and men or between women and women.

    en effet les couleurs de l’automne sont tres belles dans ta rue.
    Jour de vote, c’est amusant, vous votez en semaine, cela se passe comment avec votre travail ? vous pouvez voter pendant vos horaires de travail et c’est decompté sur votre travail, ou vous devez voter endehors de vos horaires de travail ?
    En france on vote le Dimanche, et je trouve cela plus logique.

    indeed the colors of the autumn are very beautiful in your street. Is day of vote, it amusing, you vote in week, that occurs how with your work? you can vote during your schedules of work and it is deducted on your work, or you must vote apart from your schedules of work? In France one votes Sunday, and I find that more logical.

    Colours are outstanding in this photo. Sally’s comment is interesting–we are being watched carefully. Let’s throw the buggers out!

    Olivier, the polls are open very early and stay open very late so one can easily vote before or after work. Sunday would be more convenient. 🙂

    Neo, thanks for stopping by.

    Sally, even if the marriage amendment is voted down, unfortunately we still have a long way to go.

    Kate, for me it’s a matter of the less objectionable candidate winning. I have serious questions about each of them.

    It’s a beautiful row of trees in your photo. I hope you enjoy this day.

    It would be good for us all if discrimination were not sanctioned and encoded into law. Best wishes for Virginia and the U.S. and for the whole world, today and every day

    Nice colours. I was surprised to read your state was a swing state this time….is that common for VA?

    Your autumn colors are arresting. What a wonderful palette… it almost feel like Van Gogh.

    Marie, are these the trees on your front lawn?

    It is sad, but true. More often now, people throughout the world are voting against somebody, or like they say here in Guatemala: el menos peor (the least worst).

    Many people in the world keep an eye in the U.S. elections because the results will definitely affect them. This is not true of the Nicaraguan elections, just to throw an example.

    Good luck to you and all of us!

    Marie, I can’t help but notice how colourful the election, whoops….sorry, the trees are looking this week!

    I think autumn has arrived at last in South Shields.

    I really like the symbolism implied in this post of there being something bigger than the election, seeing the beauty around you. Thanks for that.

    Super and rich colors. . . a sign of hopefulness . . .they will fall. ;^)

    Well, marie, from looking closely at the name on that election sign, I would say that YOUR representative appears to be the one that has tipped the Senate balance, eh! So a pretty portentous photo.
