By the time your read this post, I'll be well and busy at precinct 10 looking pretty much like this . . .
Yep. It's The Look for election workers this year! (Complete wth fogged glasses.)
I spent the day yesterday processing absentee ballots (not counting yet . . . just slicing them open and making sure the ballot numbers matched). Today, though, I'm heading directly into the fire . . . to work in a busy polling place.
It's riskier this year, for sure . . . what with Covid and angry people and all. I considered bailing for this go-round. But . . . I didn't. Because this work is important and vital and, well, sometimes you just have to channel all those people who did hard things to make voting possible for disenfranchised people throughout our country's history.
Hang in there, friends.
The voting system is strong and secure -- and there are lots of committed people working today to make sure that is so.
I'm glad to be one of them!
