Long lines await

The Mrs. went out to do the early voting thang in Seminole County today. Unlike Orange County, which has them in practically every library branch, Seminole only opened it up at the Election Supervisor’s office in Sanford.

I guess I’d better hit the polling place early tomorrow, as she showed up at 7:15am and the lines were already around the building (they opened at 8:00). It took her a little over an hour to vote, but there were some nice Kerry supporters passing out water for everyone (“Don’t need you fainting in line, now…”).

One good thing, at least I won’t have to deal with the campaigners and pollsters so much. The usual rule for keeping them 50 feet away from the polling place doesn’t apply to early voting. So, she was pretty much harrassed all the way along the line.

Happy Election Day!

    Even though there were upteen million polling sites in Orange County, when I drove past the Alafaya Library in East Orange last night at 7:30pm, the line was still out the front door and cars were parked all up and down HWY 50. The placed closed at 6:00pm, so these people had been on line before then. Yikes!

    It made me feel great, though. This is how it should be when we have an election. If anything, the last four years have awakened a sleeping giant.
