I worked my first presidential election on Tuesday. It was a long day; my fellow poll workers and I arrived at 6:15 a.m. and stayed until the town clerk transmitted the final vote counts to state election officials at 11:45 p.m.
Steady. Voting was steady. I checked off voters whose last names began with “H” through “K.” One of the “J” voters made my day.
It was a genuine article, from Ike’s 1956 campaign. Any Eisenhower voters would be at least 70 years old by now.
You know what they say…the past is another country.
