Instead of twiddling your thumbs and possibly questioning the significance of your vote, here is a list of things you could and should not do while waiting in line.
COULD: Research your candidate
Well, if you haven't already done so, now would be an opportune time to check with your political conscience. Go through your mental checklist of things you want your future president to do.
SHOULDN'T: Complain about standing in line
Nothing worse than when someone complains and points our the obvious.
COULD: Have a snack
It is a possibility that you could be standing in line for several minutes, if not hours. It would be smart to have a little snack to pass time. Something small like crackers/chips could be clutch.
COULD: Take a selfie and post it
Think of it as a digital 'I voted' sticker to remember this memorable election year. Just don't take another one with your ballot, as you are voting. Take it from Justin Timberlake...
COULD: Listen to some tunes/podcast or catch up missed tv show
Just please do through headphones! Everyone in line may not be as entertained.
SHOULDN'T: Explain to the people around you why you think your candidate is the best
This is quite self explanatory.
COULD: Make sure you have all proper documentation
It would be quite embarrissing to finally get to the front of the line and realize that you left something like your photo ID. Take a look and see if you have the proper documentation.
SHOULDN'T: Get frustrated, and not vote at all
Your vote matters, so cast it!
Tab is my nickname. The phrase "the gift of gab" somewhat describes me. The Gift of Tab Blog is a web log about miscellaneous personal topics such as life post graduation, my time during my internship in NYC, and video blogs from when I studied abroad in Costa Rica. I also post inspiring quotes that I come across. Enjoy!
