At about 8:15 am AZ time, I stood at the little table and voted for the next president of the United States and damn did it feel good!
Me and my dad went and stood in line for about an hour and a half; We didn't do the early balloting because I wanted to experience the whole voting atmosphere (read: it was my first time!) and my dad didn't just so he could come with me lol.
Anyways, as I got the ballot I got a sense of nervousness, not because I thought I was going to mess up but because, for the first time ever a president of African American descent was on the ballot with a legitimate chance to win.
It was an almost surreal moment for me. I was all smiles. I finished before my dad and waited for him in the car. When he saw me he asked why I was acting all happy, i simply said 4 words in response:
I JUST MADE HISTORY!
P.S. - Some lady thought she could register at the polling place. After about an hour of standing in line one of the polling officials told her that she couldn't vote because she didn't register ahead of time. She got all mad and walked out. lol. Thanks for the effort but...come on now.
