At the Polls

I didn't vote today until after 5:00 p.m., in my little lily-white precinct near Deville, LA. I was told that I was the 998th voter out of about 1700 registered voters and the 5:00 workday crowd hadn't made it to the polls yet. They expected about 300 more before the polls closed.

That's a high turnout. I expect high turnouts everywhere, and the polls won't close until 8:00 p.m. I'll watch the results till 9:00, or 10:00, then carry my sorry butt to bed.

There isn't going to be any rioting in Deville tonight. We've all got to be at work tomorrow morning. There's no time for that foolishness.
