Where I Am Going To Vote

vote

My Polling Place is the Ranger Sub-Station - LIVING ROOM,
5375 Red Oak Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90068.
I love that it says "Living Room".

I live up in Griffith Park, and just down the street from me is the Park Ranger's house. It is a simple adobe style home and it sits at the entry of the park.

The Ranger that lives in that house is Patrick Joyce, his wife Lisa and their two young sons. Every election they have to clear out for the day. Their furniture is pushed aside, tables and booths are set up. When I step in to vote, I am in a "home". With all the talk about "small town values", our values are based on who we are, not where we are.

The juxtaposition of voting in someone's living room is what this election is all about. The living room is symbolic of a gathering place, where we sit with family, where we celebrate, where we welcome our friends; the place where we sit together as a community. We are going to vote this Tuesday November 4th for the future, and what better place than to to vote than in a Home.
