Emotional rollercoaster

  1. Worry that you will have to stand in line for an hour before you can vote in the Illinois primary election.
  2. Optimism in bringing a New Yorker to the polling place and hoping for the best.
  3. Relief that you are the only voter in line.
  4. Depression that you are the only voter in line.
  5. Insane power-mad megalomania as it dawns on you that, since you are the only voter, the entire election is in your hands. Take that, Todd Stroger! Don't let the door hit you! Congratulations, Toni Preckwinkle! Here's your Senate nomination, David Hoffman!
  6. Outrage at the appalling news that apparently other people voted, depriving you of your newfound Daley-like hammerlock over city and county politics.
  7. And finally, a return to not caring that much.
