I will comfort you/ I'll take your part

nablopomo2008color.jpgIf I had thought of this earlier (and if I were sure there wasn't anything potentially illegal about it), I would have liked to volunteer (or organize an army of volunteers) to be a line-proxy for the elderly and infirm (or heck, maybe just anyone!) in high-population areas, so that they could take breaks to go to the bathroom, or eat or sit down. It's been sad to read about people for whom even the early-voting lines were too long, especially since turnout was unexpectedly high (at least compared to past years) and so people weren't prepared enough to vote absentee.

This may also be me feeling a little guilty because I got in and out of my polling place in less than 25 minutes this morning. (For once, living in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere pays off!)

What long lines? I went to vote at 6 p.m. and I was done voting exactly ten minutes after entering the front door of the school. I think everybody lined up early in the day to avoid even longer lines in the evening, thereby leaving few of us to vote in the evening!
