We Voted

Nomi and I got up early to vote today. We almost always do, and usually we try to get to our polling place at 6:50 am or so, ten minutes before they open. But four years ago there was already a long line at that time, so today we decided to get to the polls by 6:30 am instead.

It's a good thing we did. When we got there, there were already ten people on line in front of us. At 6:45 am, I stepped outside to count the number of people on line; it was already up to 43 people.

They opened the polls at 7 am, and we went in and voted. Our ballots were #15 and #16 inserted into the scanning machine.

When we left, the line was down the block, and people were still joining it.

I'm anticipating record turnout today.
