Voting for the first time


Anticipate long lines, we got to PS. 17 in Williamsburg Brooklyn around 8.00 and waited in the longest line since Disney Land. It made Jane sick to her stomach literally. People seemed unusually irritated. The couple in front of us were not in the book, they said it was their third time voting at PS. 17 and were given a sheet of paper and told their votes would be counted.
A pregnant woman who looked like she would give birth at any moment asked if she could cut the line, and was told no cutting by the woman with the book at the table and told to see some
invisible supervisor. I always wonder why when people go into the booth to pick there vote it takes so long. What are they doing in there? Must be picking their nose. I would not wait to the last minute to vote in this election.

i can't help thinking it's awesome that there has been such long lines all over... people taking a greater interest in public issues is always a good thing
