Election Day Report III

I expected that the lines would die down between 10 a.m. and lunch then again between 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. until the factory shifts end. So far, I've been wrong. Actually, the lines keep growing. Right now it's at about a two hour wait from this corner. One hour to the building doors then another once you get inside. That's about what the voters told me. Of course, the line wraps around that corner even further. I didnt' know this many people even lived in this neighborhood.

I don't know how many registered voters there are in the county, but there are 136 polling centers. But if you take into account our total population of about 400,000... that means that there are 3000 people per polling center. That's if every man, woman, child, and cow voted! By visual estimations, nearly 1000 people have to have voted so far. How many more are there?

Regardless, it's absolutely astounding to see a voter turnout like this.
