I think just about everyone I know has already voted but we have no early voting, here, and no COVID exception for those who are concerned about their health. So, we'll be masking up and out the door, shortly. Wishes for strength and peace to all my American friends as we await the results.

Good luck and stay safe!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tina! It went very well. The line for our polling station wrapped around the church, around the edge of the parking lot, and then looped back on itself. But, it still only took an hour to vote, so we were very happy. I'd say about 5% were unmasked, in spite of the fact that masks weren't required, so that was comforting, although once we got inside it was crowded and people did take masks off to ask questions. That was brief, fortunately. Hope you had a great day! Now, we wait.Delete
We had early voting, but few mail-in ballots were allowed and masks were not required (!), so I had to go in person and vote. Very frustrating.ReplyDelete
We were pleased that probably about 95% of the people in line at our polling place (the line was HUGE!) wore masks. There wasn't room for social distancing once you got into the church vestibule where the voting is held . . . literally, we only have two voting machines and it's just a tiny vestibule and a room smaller than a bedroom for the voting machines . . . but it only took an hour to get in and the actual voting process was pretty quick. I was frustrated, too. A pandemic ought to allow for exceptions. Crazy.Delete
