The bigger elections have always had a polling place in a neighbor’s garage, about a dozen houses away.
Not this time. We were consolidated into a larger precinct, and several hundred voters converged on the nearest park to do their duty as a citizen.
I didn’t even have to show an ID. I self-identified, signed in, and got a ballot.
Every registered voter gets a sample ballot so they know what they’re up against. Candidates can buy space to put their statements into the ballot; I think it’s the best money any campaign can spend.
Long explanations of every ballot initiative are in this 200+ page missive that was sent to our home.
Yeah. We voted at this place.
If you couldn’t get out of your car, they would bring a ballot to you. Drive up voting, if you will.
No waiting at all at 4pm.
Ready to begin.
The big choice….
