Did you vote today? How did it go? My roommate and I went together around 7:30 and waited for about an hour. Could have been worse, but it also could have been far more efficient. Like, they only had two people doing the check-in, and they were both women over age 80. Nice ladies, but not exactly models of speed and efficiency. There were plenty of empty booths, so they check-in was definitely the rate limiting step of the process. Still, everyone was patient and friendly, and it felt fun and exciting to vote. And since it's a great excuse to be late to work, I stopped and had a coffee and muffin afterwards. I think I got lucky, because I walked by a polling station in the South End, and there were over 500 people waiting in line.
*I like to make old person jokes with my grandmother. For example,
me: Do you know who likes potato salad?
my grandmother: Who?
me: Old people!
She thinks they're funny, I swear.
