Due to my health issues, focusing on a project. I watched as poll workers freed the equipment and placed it around church gym. The tables and equipment were doused with my favorite invention of the decade, “disposable, cleaning wipes.” Since becoming disabled, these things are my favorite item on the cleaning aisle of the local grocer.
I had the privilege of observing democracy at work. The poll workers arrived at the specified time and quickly looked around over the building they had to work with. Just as quickly, they unloaded the equipment needing to be set-up. Smiling faces on every where, American pride at work. My hubby was beaming. It was good to see him excited to be outside.

Their focus was on the next day, Election Day….the first Tuesday in November.
