|This sign confronted Voter No. 280 on the way to the polls this morning.|
Church in background is convenient, well-run polling location.
The hard part came when confronted with the box on the ballot for the Scott County Commissioner race. The incumbent is a personal friend, has done a good job and deserves to be re-elected. Her opponent is named Dave Beer. This put the voter in the uncomfortable position, for the first time in his long life, of voting against Beer.
The voter exited the precinct with an "I Voted" sticker and a sense of patriotism. But also some uncertainty. Would long lines have been discouraging? How long would he be willing to wait to exercise his right to vote? Would he become an "early voter?"
As Voter No. 280 strolled home on the neat pathways, he was happy to know that as long as he doesn't move, his patriotic determination will probably never be tested.
Nothing but respect for those patiently standing in line today. Courage, patriots!
