It is Election Day in the US and I have been spending the day at our town’s polling place, performing my duties as an election official. (In case you’re wondering, I am writing this during my break, or in this case, a late lunch.)
From the moment the polls opened at 7AM the voter turnout has been heavy, particularly for a mid-term election. Other than some momentary lulls, the voter traffic has been steady. For the most part voter attitudes have been upbeat, unlike the elections in 2016 where voters showed mostly grim determination to vote and get past the election.
More to follow later.
