Election Day

I voted this morning -- can't tell you how good if feels to have candidates who actually reflect the people in my actual life for a change -- but I have to say this. I am grateful for Election Day volunteers, but whoever is in charge really needs to be more careful about which responsibilities they give each person. There was a borderline-illiterate woman running the desk for my district, which caused a bottleneck out to the street while the other districts' tables were vacant. (Not a lot of people vote in these kinds of things -- everyone already knows who will win -- so there should have been no waiting ... EVER.) It was shocking that no one was doing anything to help the poor woman, but equally shocking that they were inadvertently discouraging people from voting. Similar thing happened during the 2012 presidential election -- simply mind-boggling. .
