Local Voter Turnout
As I completed my cases this morning, I had heard ominous stories of long lines. I arranged for a friend who had already voted to take my place at work, and I picked up a chicken salad sandwich to eat while waiting in line.
With the exception of one young man who was disenfranchised because he had already voted in another parish, the expected turnout was either off somewhere smoking crack or working. They were not at the polls.
