Just a F.Y.I. to those of you ( I HOPE ALL of you!!) who are going to vote. I have already been, and thought I'd share some insights.
1- Do not bring your cell phone in. Or if you do- turn it off! They are not allowing them, something about getting "help" while voting.
2- Dress accordingly! I.E.- if it's warm ( as it is here) take a bottle of water, dress comfortably. If it's cold, dress warmly and take a hot drink. The lines are long ( DUH!) and you will probably have to line-up outside and work your way in. They are running smoothly, but it takes time. I vote at a little church in the neighborhood, and they still managed to get 30 voting booths in that little room. They ( election officials ) KNOW the turnout is gonna be big, and they ARE prepared!
3- If you can, make sure you know who & what your voting for BEFORE you get to the booth. That way the lines KEEP moving.
4- Make sure you have your I.D. ready. They ARE checking this, and if you don't, it could take you much longer to get through the process.
5- If you are accompanied by an elderly person, or someone "physically challenged", take a lawn chair or something they can sit down on. As I said, the lines are LOOOONNNGGG, even if they are moving smoothly!
Just a few things I noticed. Have a great day! Peace, KC
