Voting in Vienna

Wow. I thought I would outsmart my fellow citizens by getting to my polling station at Nottaway Park in Vienna Virginia at 6:05 a.m., five minutes after it opened.  I was in a line that was twice as long as any I had experienced before.  It took exactly an hour and a half to vote.  This, even though the Washington Post reported this morning that about a quarter of all voters (about 30 million) have already voted.  The weather was great and I had some nice conversations with those next to me in line.

After voting, I drove a short distance to the Vienna Metro where I bought a box of Krispy Kreme donuts from a high school fundraiser.  They had a sign: No Politics, Just Donuts.  I’ll snack to that.
