I voted early. This morning, at the public library.
I can say voting felt different this year. Tensions ran high, with a volunteer shouting out on my way into the building, "Do you have I.D.? Do you live in this county?" and another panicking when I started to sign her list (after being instructed to do so) before she placed a corresponding bar code next to the signature block. She muttered, "We have to be honest," under her breath.
Anxiety. Tension. Fear. 2016
I'm glad it will be over soon. 8 days.
