I early voted, but I went out for lunch to day and cruised by a couple of polling locations while I was out. Â Here’s what I saw:
At A.L. Lotts, there was plenty of parking and no apparent line at 11:59 am. Â It didn’t look like much was going on there outside of a couple of people standing outside with Jamie Woodson signs. Â Down the road, the parking lot was more crowded at Bluegrass Elementary, but at 12:05 pm there wasn’t a line out the door or anything. Â I didn’t go inside.
Of course, the real line was at Chik-Fil-A at 12:30 pm. Â There was a line out of the parking lot for the drive through, and it was a madhouse inside. Â The lesson here: Â The answer to voter apathy is free ice cream cones at the polls.
