Last night, I had a nightmare that I couldn’t vote. My voter registration hadn’t gone through. I showed up with my registration card, to no avail. I wasn’t allowed to vote, because I was a woman, and voting democrat. When I tried to get in the booth, I didn’t understand the punch card, because it wasn’t a punch card anymore. I was voting by touch screen. I didn’t get any kind of physical receipt cataloging my vote. I was herded out of the library by smug-looking officials, and I burst into tears.
150 years of American women fighting for suffrage, and here we were again.
Gosh. I sure am glad I woke up from that nightmare.
