Vote! Vote! Vote!
Pennsylvanians head to the polls tomorrow, so I will not be posting – I'm the minority inspector of elections for my voting district (I even have a very pretty letter on real stationery that says so!) so I'll be heading out at 5:45am.
I'll spend the day working the polls, and then – once they close at 8pm – will ride with the Judge of Elections to deliver our district's votes to the county Election Bureau. I should be home sometime around 10pm…maybe.
As much as I'm looking forward to this, I'm also dreading it. Not only will this be a LONG day – about 16 hours altogether – assuming nothing goes wrong – it's going to be a smoke-free one for me. *shudder* Poll workers must remain in calling (voice, not phone) distance of the polling site, and while we will get restroom breaks, smoking privileges do not come with the job! *sigh*
On the good side, I get paid for this! I think it's only $60, but still – how cool!! But…since I'm not a Republican, I can't abuse my position and accept cash bribes and expensive gifts. Darn!
