What fabulous weather here in Ohio for voting? I couldn't believe how nice it was- I felt as if it were summer. "Indian" summer, is, I would suppose, what we are experiencing. Megan and I lined up at our polling place at 6:15 and were done voting by 7:10, just in time for both of us to get to work comfortably. My hat goes to the polling place volunteers. What a thankless job they have. Hearing complaints, vetting voters to make sure their address is correct (a process particularly annoying to me, after having voted without ever showing ID until 2006), managing hundreds of people, they definitely should be recognized. Today at our polling place, local High School students were even involved in the process.
I hope everything went smoothly for all voters everywhere.
