So, the other day a post popped up in my Facebook feed touting a design contest for Buncombe County (the next county over) and their “I Voted” stickers for the upcoming election in November.
“Must say ‘I voted.’ … the rest is up to you … deadline September 2 … designs voted on September 7-22 … winner announced September 22.”
Excellent! So, I got to work and banged out a design that I was pretty happy with, only to REALLY read the instructions after the fact.
“WHO: Any young person, ages 13-18 that is a resident of Buncombe County is eligible to participate.”
Dammit. I am neither ages 13-18 nor a resident of Buncombe County.

Reading. It’s fundamental.
