So we all now know the results of the election for the big ticket items. I was an election judge again this year and was amazed by the turnout. When I arrived at 6 am, there was a line. It started at 4:45 am. Like sitting outside a Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving. But with a different importance. My precinct handled over 2400 people. Most before noon. We had an hour and a half wait. Lots of young and older folks. People that had not voted in years turned out for this one.
I was particular taken back by a lady wise in her years. When I was checking her in I noticed something out of the ordinary. Her birth year was 1909. She was just one year shy of her 100th birthday. She mustered everything she had to get out and vote. Just incredible. So I will remember this day for the remainder of my life. Today I am extra proud of America.
