As the runoff runs down

Ballot #267 at a couple minutes past five at my regular precinct. I am somewhat heartened by the fact that during the general election, I was about two minutes earlier, and 65 fewer votes had been cast; this suggests that turnout has improved from “dismal” to “mediocre.”

Cold morning, unfortunately, so all three of the pollworkers were in slacks. (You can’t have everything.)

    The thought of my pollworkers showing leg is pretty terrifying.

    Nicole: ditto. I just imagine all the varicose veins and swollen ankles…

    Further evidence that I was indeed fortunate to buy in this location when I did.

    … especially the thought of the old man showing off his hairy white legs, probably as bony as he is.

    Well, for something big — think November — they’ll send over a guy or two, but our core precinct workers are three women, at least two of which have displayed decent stemware in the past.
