Well, there were three polling stations at the polling place I was working.
We were given 375 ballots and had 149 people turn up to vote. I think it actually worked out to less than 40% of the people on our voter list.
SO, we had a pretty easy day compared to the other two polls. There seemed to be a lot of younger people voting. Many first time voters, so that's a good thing.
But, I'm glad the day is over.
It started FAR too early.
I had the alarm set for 6:00, but was awakened just after 4:30 by a persistent thumping on the wall behind our bed.
It was Hillary using her long stick to signal someone. She'd started throwing up and needed assistance.
So, I helped her, and was back in bed by 4:45.
Then I listened to the cuckoo clock chime 5:00.
Then I heard one cuckoo to signal the half hour.
Then the alarm went off.
Thomas had his head in a bucket at 6:30.
At least Micah is better today. He went to school, and Thomas was able to write his math final this morning, but Hillary didn't make it.
I think I'm still fairly lucid for putting in more than 18 hours today.
Oh- and we did indeed see a good bit of activity first thing in the morning. The first voters were there just after 8:00, not being aware that the polls didn't open til 8:30. It was slow but steady all morning, with a surge in activity around 2:30 that peaked around 4:00 and tapered off to a trickle by 7:00. So, maybe I have a bit of the prophetic in me.
Good night, sweet prince.
