November 4th is finally over, and my 14 hours working at an election polling precinct is complete. It was a long, long day, but ultimately worth it.
Turnout in our precinct was strong, with nearly 72% of all eligible voters having taken their part in the election process, either through early voting or on the 4th itself.
With the results of what will no doubt be a historic election, it will be a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

Barack Obama’s speech to Virginia, given during the middle of a rainstorm, is a wonderful spot of inspiration in what can often seem like dark times.
I went down to the local Board of Elections for Poll Worker training today. It was interesting seeing the process behind election day preparations. I’m glad I volunteered, as looking around the room, I was definitely the youngest person there. And in an increasingly technology-based world, it’s important to get some tech-savvy volunteers there for the growing number of electronic voting machine questions.
