Sunday/ my vote is in

I voted for the upcoming local elections for the City of Seattle and for King County tonight. (It’s low tech to vote : fill in oval circles with pen, fold up your ballot, stuff in an envelope, and send it in the mail.  I guess it’s sort-of high tech when it comes to counting votes. They run the ballots through a scanner.  Will voting ever become fully electronic? Maybe not, just the same as paper money that will not go away any time soon).
