I just got back from voting. The pollworkers disagreed about turnout: one said 'about average', the other 'less than usual'. I was number 72 in the book, at 11:30 or so. That total was for just one table of three at the fire station. There were three voting machines, one for each table, and three different Assembly districts represented in the one polling place. I only saw six or seven other voters the whole time (five or ten minutes) I was there. At 49, I was the youngest or second-youngest person in the room, counting pollwatchers. Of course, things may pick up later on when those with full-time jobs start showing up.
If I were a Florida Democrat, I could have filed a lawsuit already. My voter registration information told me quite specifically to go to the Lake View Fire Station on Ling Road, but the fire station at that address was clearly labeled Lake Shore, not Lake View. And you can't see Lake Ontario from it, either, except maybe from the top of a fully extended truck ladder. I'm confused! I think I may have voted a split Libertarian / Socialist Worker ticket by mistake! I demand to be allowed to vote again!Posted by Dr. Weevil at November 05, 2002 11:59 AM
