Thankful Thursday



Thankful today for this little building on the side of a country highway.  It is where I will go vote next Tuesday.  As I enter I will be greeted by name and asked just how that family of mine is doing.  Then I will sign my name and cast my vote in one of the two cubicles.  There is one, "fancy", electronic voting machine that I often use.  No one else ever wants to use it, so it is a quick in-and-out situation.  I hope it is in working order this time.  

Linking up with Theresa today because there is a barbed wire fence right behind the building that separates it from the cow pasture beyond.....if you squint you might be able to see it.

  1. What a cute voting place. You live in a nice area where everyone knows your name. I vote in my son's old elementary school. Have a happy day!

  5. Wow! What a neat place to vote! We often know the people there in charge of the voting, as we live in a small town, but we get to vote in a conference room off the relatively new library.

  6. (We actually live in the country, but we vote in the small town.) Your voting place reminds me of a couple post offices I saw in Kansas.

  10. Small town life with neighbors at the voting place is becoming more rare and thus more of a treasure. I enjoy your posts and your photos.

  13. I go to a church down the road to vote. What? Thought church and state had to be separate. Guess not in the country.

  18. Small town life is so unique. That is such a charming building you vote in. Here we just mail our ballots in any more. Oh I did see the fence and didn't even have to squint!

  19. Well, I must admit I have never seen such a unique (or small) place to cast a vote! Awesome little place :)

    1. Debby, it is very tiny on the inside. But, it replaces a small closet type area that was located in a country store. The store is no more, so they replaced it with this building. A big improvement!

    1. Teresa, this is actually a new-ish building. We had been voting in a small, "side-room", of a country store. Said store is falling down, so they placed this tiny, (I mean tiny!), building on the side of the road for us to use.

  21. I too have never seen anything so sweet! Over here, we vote in schools!

  25. I love everything about this post. Looking forward to hearing that your fancy 21st century voting machine was up and running properly and you were in and out in a flash with the election volunteers saying, 'Have a nice day, Michelle!' as you left.

  32. When I see this.... it is like an "old" american film.
    We use the school nearby, when we vote. Some places also use churches.
