Get Off Your Horse and Go Vote!


Here is how it's done in cracker country! Voting day in rural Florida, means stepping back in time and getting to the polls anyway you can! DressageDaily's Mary Phelps and neighbor Linda Pruitt went on horseback to cast their vote in DeLeon Springs, Florida in 2004. Voting headquarters is a historical old cracker house, once a home owned by a longtime local family. It was donated to the county for the designated exclusive use as the polling center for our neighborhood. I am voting in Kentucky this year, and waited for "the day" rather than vote early. I am still in a rural area headed to the Fire Station so the lines won't be too long. This is an important election where turn out will make all the difference, and we are gettin' off our horses to do our part.
