I'm thankful today for the right to vote.
We chose to do so by absentee ballot this year.
On a recent afternoon, we sat at the kitchen table surrounded by our voter's guide, the laptop and the many flyers received from the various candidates. We read, researched and discussed our choices.
Once decisions were made we filled in the little bubbles on the ballot, signed, sealed and delivered them to the mailbox.
Today on election day there will be no waiting in long lines, which just might be something else to be thankful for :).
