Election Day

Today’s the big day. I thought that I’d just write something quickly. I went in yesterday at four to help set everything up. As usual, there was one machine that didn’t work. It took some time with tech support, but all eight machines now work.

I have to be there again at 5:45 a.m., which is in less than thirty minutes. Once there, I’ll probably be there until 8:00 p.m. It’s a long day, but I’ll be getting paid about $150 for it. Someone said that we’ll be getting paid more quickly this time. I hope so. I don’t know what the delay is.

I like the place that we have this time. It’s in a building with several other precincts. The place we had before was ok, but I think that this one is better suited for an election. I’m not really sure what happed with the last location. Rumor is that the property changed ownership and the new owners didn’t want us there, but I never heard anything official.

I still have a little more to do to get ready. I’ll probably do something longer within the next day or two.
