People lined up Wall to Wall to vote

I have never seen such a turn out for voting in all my 78 years...Cars were all over the streets parking...and inside they were all lined against the wall like they were holding it up.......we were told there was a voting area for the disabled around the back...and that's where we went....we were able to sit in our car...and an electronic board was passed to us after our identification was verified!And we both were able to vote while sitting in the car (two hours later). The "car line" wasn't too long, just took time to get things done....I'm glad they had that feature...We were both stiff as boards when we got out, but that wasn't as bad as trying to hold up that wall inside, I would probably have had to leave and come back early in the morning to be there before they opened, to prevent back problems later ...At least it's done now and we can relax that we have done our civic duty.We would have continued to revisit until we were able to cast our votes.....Just a reminder for all...get out and vote...

I've never heard of having them bringing the voting thing to your car. I'm glad you and Cecil got to vote without having to wait in the long line inside. This year I think (and hope) that everyone will get out to vote. This is an important election year with a lot riding on it, I think.
