Election Firsts

At 7:25pm last night, I sat in my car watching a train pass over Hilltop Road. Going back to when I was 17 in 1984, I had never failed to vote, but I knew that streak was in jeopardy. Luckily, I squeezed into my precinct at 7:28 and got to experience some firsts in my voting career.

It was the first time I was the last voter (#152) at my precinct.
It was the first time the voting machine had to be turned back on (its clock was fast).
It was the first time I heard the precinct judge declare the precinct closed.

It is disappointing that only 152 people voted at a precinct that includes Adams Farm.
