Exercising the right to vote

.

I was happy to vote today!
Israel had municipal elections and it was a yom shabbaton, a day off from work and school.
Two of our town's schools had polling places for the roughly 6,500 residents old enough to vote. 
It was a festive atmosphere in Meitar, with folks walking in, stopping to chat, and smiling at one another. 
And music and booths just outside the schools' gates. 
It happens every five years.
Democracy in action. 
May the best man win!

Sounds much more pleasant than the election atmosphere in the US!

We had our municipal elections just over a week ago. Our mayor was re-elected. Bland but competent, which in this day and age is a good thing.

I absentee vote by email. So easy. I wish all the US states would make it as easy as Washington state does...
