I voted about 8:30 a.m. after coming home from work. My husband also voted at that time. I was the 15th voter in my precinct.
After a good day’s rest, I went back to the give the workers some snacks I recently received from the Mt. Zion Food Pop-Up. I also asked how many times I could vote, and we had a good laugh.
I asked how many had voted by this time, about 3:30 p.m., and was told 75 persons in my precinct had voted. I didn’t ask how many had voted in the other precinct that was also at First Church PCA.
We had a terrific and fun time with the workers. Lovely people, and they went along with my craziness. They were awesome and made voting a pleasure. Was glad I could leave them some snacks to help them finish out their day’s work.
I don’t have the names of any of the precinct workers but asked them all if it was ok to have their pictures taken, and they said yes. Notice all have such broad smiles and happy faces. My grandson Sam Schmidtke also took some of these pictures for me.

Thank you for bringing to everyone’s attention that the Poll Workers are wonderful people who help us do our civic duty and VOTE! All the Poll Workers I ran into this past election day were delightful and helpful. Thank you to each and every one of them!
