Voted Gillum and Nelson!!

Smooth operation at African American Library on Sistrunk.

Made a mistake on my vote by mail ballot (turning 60 next year/I can no longer mock the seniors in palm beach county in 2000).

Everyone at voting place knew procedures inside and out. Got
New ballot/ got to use old one as work sheet/ had to turn in old ballot after casting new ballot.

Election person showed me that my ballot was counted after it was scanned.

Low turnout here which disappointed me one day after Gollum’s awesome debate showing but then again I came here a little after 10:00 after a court hearing so it is off hours. Little bit of a line when I left.

Many, many booths inside. Very smooth. It’s a very long ballot and took me 1 hour to research and fill out before getting here. Then another 7 to 8 minutes to do a new one.

Broward Dems handing out Blue Card at the entrance to parking lot with recommendations on all votes, including constitutional and local charter issues. This was helpful. Compared my choices to theirs and pretty much 100%.

Love my county ... 70% Democratic.

Let’s Bring it Home!!

Democratic Party has been harassing me to turn in my vote-by-mail ballot, but I always walk it in to make sure it gets counted and not lost in the mail. Today was the first day I could walk it in. Happy that they kept texting me, though. Means that they were texting everyone else as well.

My niece in Alachua county has already voted. My nieces in Marion County are in the on-deck circle like I am. Everyone is calling around to family and friends, making sure that people vote.

ballot? Hou you voted is supposed to be known only to you---and that sample ballot has your name and address on it. That doesn't seem right to me.

By department of elections. I made a mistake filling it out, which means I had to exchange for another ballot. They have to destroy the old one so there is only one out there. They let me use it as a sample so I could quickly prepare the new one without mistakes.
