Vintage Voters

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.

i-like-ikeIt 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.

    And good on ya, too. The single best defense against fraud at the polls (never mind registration fraud, whole different problem) is the probity of citizens like you who worked the polls everywhere in the country, determined that the polls should be fair, no matter who won. Thanks!
