Today is the day that I have been anticipating and dreading. I love Election Day because I am one of the people that get to count the votes, and it is a fun, tiring and important role. My day today has already started and I will not see my bed for the next 22-26 hours (depending how long it takes to count the votes).
As a university student I never did an all nighter, I loved sleep far too much to leave my assignment last minute. Even for exams, I slept my 8 hours sleep instead of staying up all night studying.
As this is my third election that I will be counting the votes for, I know what to expect in terms of tiredness. I know that I will need a caffeine high to get through the night in one piece.
Thank you for reading.
