Supreme voters

If you live in the greater Washington D.C. area, did you vote today?

Chances are Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia did.

The two are among the high court’s most frequent voters, according to the Washington Post (via the ABA Journal).

Both justices routinely participate in primary and general elections, with registered Democrat Ginsburg being a regular at her Washington, D.C. polling place, and Scalia frequenting the voting station in his Virginia district to cast his vote in Republican primaries and generals.

They “come close to the ‘serial voter’ status prized by political operatives,” the story says.

While most of the justices tend to skip the primaries and vote only in the general elections, the story says, one exception is Justice Stephen Breyer, who cast an absentee ballot in his home Commonwealth of Massachusetts for last week’s Super Tuesday primary (he was actually in Hawaii on election day).

Of course we don’t know who Breyer voted for, although his state went to Sen. Hillary Clinton, the wife of the man who gave Breyer his job, former President Bill Clinton.
