Rik votes

My Canadian-born husband decided to become a US citizen on the evening of the last presidential election. As soon as the California returns had come in, and we knew that Barack Obama would be the next President of the United States, Rik downloaded the citizenship application, completed it and mailed it the next day.

Here is Rik as he votes in his first presidential election:

(In Washington state, we now vote exclusively by mail.)
