They Voted Early

Christine Hennessey is a New Yorker transplanted to Nacogdoches in East Texas, where she’s a librarian and “aspiring author.” Last week, she voted for Obama during a lunchbreak (thanks, Sue Salinger):

RCKM ©®™, a “down to earth” photographer, likes “to see people share their lives” on Flickr. Here’s a glimpse of his: on the same day that Christine voted in Texas, he waited for two and a half hours at the polls in Georgia. He says, “When I saw the line today I thought to myself .. ‘Is this worth it?’ and YES IT WAS.” (Hat tip again to Sue Salinger.)

Raglind explains that this elderly woman voted early in Orlando last week and hadn’t cast a ballot since 1964, when she supported Johnson. (Thanks, Ann Raber.)

Raglind also says she’s 104 years old… That hardly seems possible but, if true, hats absolutely off!
