I got there about half an hour before the poll closed, and the line snaked through the county administration building. All told, I waited about an hour and a half.
It was hot. People were obviously wilted, but the mood was upbeat. Everyone had a sense of purpose, even after the wait.
When I finally made it into the voting area, the older woman at the registration table looked a bit frazzled and beat. I asked her how she was doing, realizing that she had about another hour of voters in line behind me.
She beamed. “I’m great! Isn’t this exciting? We’re making history! I can’t wait for Tuesday!”
