When you register to vote in Vermont you must take the Voter’s Oath (also known as the Free Man’s Oath) where you “solemnly swear or affirm that whenever you give your vote or suffrage … you will do so as in your conscience you shall judge will most conduce to the best good of the same, as established by the Constitution, without fear or favor of any person.”
Good stuff. Use your vote for good and don’t let anyone influence you otherwise.
I have been reading about long lines to vote in many places. I think this is a good thing, although when I went to vote this morning I had to wait a few minutes because all three of the booths were in use. It’s a busy day in our little village clerk’s office.

Rock on, people.
