It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I worked at the election on Tuesday from 5;30 AM to 9:00 PM. It was amazing how many people lined up to vote. Many of them were unregistered which is why there was a long line. We registered over 150 voters in a precinct that has just over 2060 voters.
It was busy and exhausting. We registered voters in the morning and in the evening and over the lunch hour too. People voted like crazy. It was thrilling to be a part of it all.
There were times when every booth was occupied and we were handing out clipboards and finding chairs. Young people showed up in droves. I won’t get all political but democracy works when people participate by voting. I feel good about this election and about all of our futures.
If you are eligible to vote in Minnesota you can register today and be ready for the next election.
Voting is fun!
