In a minute here, I’ll be on my way to the polling place where I’ve been assigned as equipment manager to set things up for tomorrow’s election. Setting up the touchscreen machines etc. will make tomorrow’s scant hour before the polls open (at 6 a.m!!) a tad less hectic.
The goal is to be in bed by nine tonight, four hours before my regular bedtime. (I don’t think I’ve been to bed by nine since I was ten.) I have to be at the polling place by five a.m. and absolutely must give myself enough time beforehand to fire up a pot of coffee. Tomorrow calls for the big thermos!
So, Tuesday I’ll be away from the internet and knee-deep in democracy. I’m packing a lot of reading material.
