The big event for today was the fact that I voted. Yes, I know that election day isn't for 18 days but I am going to be working as an election monitor on November 2. I will be doing my best to ensure that those people that are registered to vote are legally allowed to vote. I will be standing outside a polling area watching for any problems and equipped with a phone a notebook and a camera to document any problems. From what we were told in our training, most problems can be taken care of on-site immediately but we will be equipped with a phone to bring a lawyer in if necessary.

This morning, I had to do a little ballot studying. I have known who I would vote for at the top of the ballot for a while, but when it comes down to the judges, there are so many, I had to look up the recommendations of the Illinois Bar Association. Most of the judges were recommended, but there were four circuit court judges and two sub-circuit judges who were not recommended. I did bring in a paper, to remember who was not recommended. I also wanted to look at the referenda in my precinct and when I did that, I had to try to find an explanation of one of the referenda because, in my opinion, it was vague and poorly worded.

I also received three netflix movies, Hellboy, Thief, and Goodfellas. I have watched Hellboy before (and I watched again tonight) but I really like it and will probably end up buying it eventually.

Tomorrow, I'm going to help a friend of Sharon's with a garage sale benefiting the Kerry/Edwards campaign in swing states.

And thats the news for tonight, October 15, 2004, goodnight.
