    Default Vote!!!

    I never talk politics in conjunction with my business, because it's bad for business! About half your customers won't like your politics so it's better to be silent about it than alienate a client.

    HOWEVER, I have to say I'm very excited that this 2020 Election has so much interest and looks to be on track to have one of the highest voter turnouts ever. And this is really good no matter of you are Red or Blue, you're taking an interest and making an effort to vote. Complacency really changed the track of the 2016 election and I think there is no one is not paying attention this time around. Your vote matters, and it's an exciting time.

    I will be in line tomorrow (Tues Nov 3rd) so the store may open late (or close early) because if it takes three hours or more, I'm going to wait however long it takes to cast my ballot. I tried several times to get out for early voting but the store was always too busy and I could not leave but I have to make it to the polls tomorrow.

    V O T E !

    I voted early since I am an Election Officer at the Belle Haven precinct. I am glad voter turnout is much higher than normal.

    We have had such long lines for pre-voting in our area, typically two hours. I could never get away to go - My wife Jennifer stood in line this past Saturday for an hour and twenty minutes. I think I went 5x to go, saw the lines and went back to the store. Finally today I had to go - and was prepared for two to three hours in line.

    Imagine my utter surprise to pull up to my polling station and there was no line at all. None, Nada. Zero, Zip, I walked right up, presented my ID, got my ballot, scanned it, and was back in the parking lot in 4 minutes since I got out of the car. AMAZING. Everyone here in Northern VA pre-voted. Wow!I was amazed and chuckled all the way out of the parking lot.
