- We just had elections, I always try to Vote, ALWAYS.
- I reached the polling station late eve on Tuesday and there was a crowd but no worries I have my trusted Phone to keep me occupied.
- Cant find my name, Cant even find our street !!!! WTH It has 4 homes on it, How on earth does one miss out listing an entire street.
- Its listed on the sheet outside stating the street belongs to precinct 5. so between that list and the clerks list they left out a street???
- Checked the main voters list in the town hall – Yep there I am a registered undecided Voter. but apparently no name on the street ballot list = no ballot 😦
- oh well , I’m not giving up, I plan to sit there till I get a ballot, nothing better to do at home anyway 🙂
- This whole Voting deal is populated with volunteers – over the age of 70 (easily)
The warden peers into the sheet
W: I think you’re in precinct 3 honey
Me : It’s a 5 ma’am not 3
W : you think, it sure looks like a 3
Me : yep very sure that’s a 5. take your time, I’ll stay.
- A veteran ( green beret) pats me on the back and says – ” good for you dear don’t budge till you get your ballot “. ( oh yeah like I need encouragement to cause trouble)
- After discussions, checking lists, many ph calls and much more peering into various sheets I finally got the ballot and… they fixed the list, called town hall and got it fixed in the computer too 🙂
- All this by volunteers over the age of 70 , We pay so much Tax ( salary) to the actual employees , Even have an exclusive computer savvy voter registration clerk who missed out a bunch of registered names and streets . ( in out tiny town) . How??
- I wish these 70+ with their superb attitude, righteous nature and persistence, patience did these kinds of jobs, They may be slow but are meticulous . All our cities will have no issues whatsoever then.
