I Have Voted, Have You?
I got to the precinct in Crawford, a ball park clubhouse, at about 7:20 this morning because I wanted to just go ahead and get it done early, especially after staying up all night. It had rained around 6 but no rain fell as I waited, which is good because there was no shelter outside and I wouldn't have wanted to lose my place in line. There were maybe 50 people there already, probably to get it done before going to work in most cases and in some cases, wanting to just get it done like I did. For this reason I had about a 45-50 minute wait but the line was moving along steadily and no time was wasted. Coming out I noticed the line was shorter since it was after 8 and more local people would have left for work by then. I was still glad to get it done when I did; I wasn't bothered by the wait at all. And as I left the clubhouse, I saw three ducks walk by on their way to the adjacent lake. It may not be a sign but it was a nice touch for my setting. Everyone should have as pleasant a voting experience.
