Thoughts of a 19 year old girl filling out her absentee ballot

  1. Are you kidding me? Error page??? How the hell am I supposed to vote???
  2. Okay, try it on a computer, Lexie. That should work.
  3. *logs in, fills out name* God, I just love filling out information about myself.
  4. Okay here we go. Do I want to print it out and then mark it or mark it and then print it out?
    Mark it and then print it out. This is 2016, people.
  5. Oh my gosh I'm so nervous. This feels weird.
  6. Okay I seriously thought this would just be for President and Vice President. I'm an idiot.
  7. Crap. I don't know who any of these people are or if I want them to represent Maryland in Congress.
  8. *takes it to the Google* okay I like what this person stands for, I'm going to vote for them.
  9. Okay this woman is super cool, we need her on the board of education.
  10. Okay, few more checks, few more checks.
  11. This is an iconic moment in my life. This is iconic.
  12. Okay review and print. You can do this.
  13. *printing costs $1.20* man, freedom sure ain't free. I am such a good citizen.
  14. Let's read these papers.
  15. Your page that was "Left blank on purpose" cost me 10 cents. Thanks, State of Maryland.
  16. I might have some envelopes in my room, but do I have stamps? I have no idea. Probably not.
  17. Aw man, since I'm doing an absentee vote, does this mean I don't get an "I Voted" sticker? That's so lame.
  18. Hehe, I wonder, if you vote but you didn't get a sticker, does it still count?
  19. *writes tweet about voting and does it count if you don't get a sticker.*
  20. Now I just have to carry this super important stack of papers back to my dorm room.
  21. No big deal, nobody sees me, I'm not carrying the future of America in my hands.
  22. God, this would have been so much easier if I had just done this at my parents' house this weekend. Free printing, stamps, and I could just mail it from their house! I'm a dummy.
  23. Yes! I still have the envelopes my mom sent me last year but I never used.
  24. But I don't have stamps. So I guess I have to buy some. Are you kidding me? This is fucking ridiculous.
  25. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
  26. And that's the story of my first time voting.
