And Now We Wait

Hubby and I survived our day of being poll workers.  The day started at 3:30 a.m. when we got up to be ready to be at the polling place at 5:30 AM!  Polls opened at 6:30 am and closed at 7:30 pm.  We were done with the clean up by 8:10 and was home eating supper by 8:45.  I have lots of stories to tell but right now I’m very tired, my feet hurt, and I’ve just come off the sugar rush from the goodies I bought at the bake sale.  (Our polling place was at a church.  The church ladies had a bake sale.  Yes, I have a serious weakness for church bake sales on election day.)
By the way, I figured we had about a 50% turnout in the precinct we worked.  Not great but better than expected!

    Pam, I know just how your feet feel !!  I worked a precinct here in AZ – our polls were open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and we were finally out of there by 8:45.  Had to upload the accuvote machine and touch screen machine to election headquarters, and that did go smoothly.  I was very humbled by both the young coming out to vote for the first time and how seriously they took it and the very old who came out despite their disabilities and age.  One man with macular degeneration had to read the ballot with a magnifying glass and took a very, very long time to vote – but he did it !!  Our precinct was one of the smaller ones – 873 registered and we had a whopping 94% turnout !! That was about 30% better than the state.  I am so anxious to hear of your experiences and stories of your long, long day at the polls.  Good for you and your hubby for being such good citizens of this great country!!
