We had a busy afternoon planned today, and I knew I needed to leave early to vote, but completely forgot until I was already an hour away from my polling place.
I had planned to stay at our destination for several hours, but had to leave after about an hour and a half to be able to vote.
Shortly after leaving our friend's house, we witnessed a hit and run. So, we turned around to provide witnesses for the victims (no one was injured, just vehicle damage.)
As we drove away, I was concerned that I would miss voting, but as Xavier said, we did the right thing. I definitely would have felt guilty had I not turned around.
About 15 minutes later, we barely missed being side swiped at 60 miles an hour. It was close enough that the other car's mirror got pushed in. Xavier just about had a heart attack.
We got to the polling place at 5:43, 17 minutes before the polls closed. All the stress was worth it. Also, maybe remembering to vote early would help.
