Mt Pleasant, South Carolina: Precinct 37 at Hamlin Plantation
I arrived at 11:15 am, and voted one hour and fifty minutes later, at 1:05 pm. When I arrived, there was a long line outside the door - down the side walk (and you can't tell in this image, but it wraps back towards the pool and down a ramp in front of the adjacent building. Once you get inside - you went down a hallway, into a room - and back down the hallway to the voting area (where there were seven polling booths for the one precinct). When I left, there was a much shorter line - just to the bottom of the steps.
Luckily there was no rain, maybe a few drops - but nothing problematic.
It felt good to see so many people voting. It'll be interesting to see what the numbers actually are.
My Father once again set his alarm clock early today (obscenely so) - so that he could volunteer at his local polling place in Virginia. Last night when I spoke with him, he had his coffee pot already packed up in his car, as well as snacks for fellow volunteers. He'll have a long day, but he'll enjoy it - the social aspects that is. I have a feeling that he won't like the outcome of the election (or at least I hope not!) - but he's very patriotic, and I'm sure he'll come around to supporting the person elected.
There was a feeling today that something big was happening. It felt good.
