I decided to pass up the delights of a one-hour wait in line at the polls, so instead of going right before work or right after work I went during work, while things were not being piled into my inbox at the usual alarming rate. At 8:40, a hundred minutes into the day, I cast ballot #175, which tells me that there will probably be close to a thousand by the time things wrap up at 7 pm.
Fortunately for me, I already knew what marks I was going to make, so I was out of there in less than three minutes, which is fairly impressive given a ballot the size of a cookie sheet, and a two-sided cookie sheet at that. (Do not try to bake on the underside. The results will not be encouraging.)
