I voted today around 9am. I was the 15th voter in my precinct, which given that the polls had been open since 7am, and most voting happens in the first two hours, lunch hour, and the last two hours, does not suggest a real impressive turnout. But then again, my precinct is one in which there are relatively few partisan offices on the primary ballot this year, and basically none of those are likely to be close contests except maybe, can I dream?, the challenge to Erik Fresen in the GOP primary. Not that I have great hopes there.
I learned from the poll workers that they do a whole-day shift, from 5:30am setup to post-7pm close. That’s a long day.
