This went up at 270 — something we haven’t done in many years.
Sent by a friend to get me through a long day of election judging:
What I got done during 14 hours of election judging:
I’ve laughed, cried and had to work all day today, too. I thought I’d write about election judging, and how great it was, from the new citizen waiting at the door at 6 am to be the first to vote, to putting the final seal on the ballot box. However, I’m too exhausted. Instead, go see Deb Robson‘s account, I’m sure it’s more cogent. The big difference is that here in Minnesota we have same day registration, so I spent much of the day helping first-time voters register. They ranged from three 18 year-old African American buddies who got me to give them extra ‘I voted ‘stickers so they could put them all over their faces, to an 80 year-old white woman voting for the first time. It was moving and humbling. I have no words. To quote a friend, I am dumfounded with relief. Thank you to everyone. I am so filled with hope for the future.
