Today is the day of the primary elections for the elections to be held in November. As usual, I’m working as an election judge in a precinct in my ward. It will be a long day: I go to the polling place no later than 5:00am and I expect to be home sometime between 8:00pm and 9:00pm this evening.
I expect the worst turnout since I began working as an election judge more than 25 years ago, a combination of it being a primary which, ironically, typically have less turnout than do general elections, it being a mid-term election, and just plain fatigue.
I’ll try to check in at some point during the day but that may not be possible. I’m sure I’ll have something to say about the elections tomorrow.
