My family just returned home from voting. What a crowd at our local school. My wife and I never had to wait on a huge line like that before to vote.
A large turnout is healthy for our democracy but in non-presidential elections where politicians are elected who make some of the most important policy decisions, we barely see anyone at the polls.
For my family, this is the fourth election of the year with the presidential primary, the congressional primary, the assembly primary and now the general election. Camille and I voted in all of them. We took our kids too. Actually, it's election number five if we count the UFT election.
Even though I am a political junkie and enjoy teaching participation in government, I must admit I am totally sick of this election for president and am looking forward to seeing it in the rear view mirror.
How was everyone's Professional Development today? At Middle College it is never stressful and usually somewhat interesting.
