Exhausted, fascinated, impressed, encouraged- verbs to describe a day that started at 5:45 a.m. with Nan’s arrival at Lacy Elementary to get the polling place up and running (after two hours of set up last night). An amazing team of election workers was ready and waiting when the poll opened. A busy day with a steady stream of voters until closing at 7:30. Another hour to break down. We would urge folks to find an election to work at the polls. Understanding the care and commitment of those who commit this time should assuage your concerns about the process and renew your faith in the system.
