We arrived at the polling station at 6:30 a.m., to wait until the polls opened at 7:00. I was the 44th to vote in my precinct. Göran was the 56th. There were longer lines than I've ever seen, but the folks administering the voting were efficient, and things seemed to be moving along well.

I'm fasting today, and am praying for a safe, peaceful, respectful, and honorable election process. (Am also praying for my parents, who are traveling today to Finland for the funeral of my mom's brother, my Uncle Taisto.)

Happy voting!
