Yes I Can . . .

I just returned from voting. I can feel the world changing already.

Augie and Izzy can feel it too. Based on Augie and Izzy's neighborhood yard sign count Obama is winning by a landslide. In fact, in all of Bloomington they have only seen two Clinton signs.

If you're in Bloomington and you're trying to figure out this early voting thing, swing by the Curry Building, which is at 290 W 7th St between Bloomingfoods and College Ave. They have reserved parking for voters and a little flier in the window with the hours they're open. I was the last voter today, so head on over tomorrow so you can cast your vote. I believe they're open on Saturday and Sunday.

Tuesday is the big day of course. The U.S. Supreme Court in their infinite wisdom has upheld the disenfranchising I.D. requirement, so, Hoosiers, don't forget these tips for voting:

  • If you are registered and will be 18 or older by November 4th, 2008, you can vote in the May 6th Primary.
  • When you go to vote between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., you must bring with you a Photo ID issued by the state of Indiana or the U.S. Government that has your name and an expiration date after November 7, 2006.
  • Acceptable ID includes Indiana Driver's Licenses, Indiana state photo ID card, a U.S. Passport, U.S. Military ID or Student ID from an Indiana state school, so long as it includes a photo and an expiration date.
  • And if this is your first time voting, make sure you bring an acceptable document that shows your current address -- such as an Indiana driver's license, current utility bill, bank statement, or paycheck.
