One Man’s GOTV

Like millions of other Americans, I will vote tomorrow. What makes this election unusual is that I am currently a Sandy refugee in the Rondout Valley of Ulster County, while my polling place is on 13th Street, below Union Square in New York City. So tomorrow I will drive twenty-some miles to the bus station, take a 90-mile trip to Port Authority Bus Terminal, take a cab (if I can find one) several miles to my apartment, drop off some items, vote, have lunch, and take the trip back.

I figure my round trip is 230 miles. Can any reader beat that?

UPDATE: I just learned that I have heat and hot water, so I will be traveling 115 miles to vote, then staying put. That’s a lower bar — can any NRO voters clear it?
