Last Tuesday the State of California held a primary election. I was a poll worker. I firmly believe that voting is more than a right, it is a responsibility. So anything I can do to support the voting process is, in my mind, a good thing to do.
Back when I started voting you had to go to a polling place unless there was something unusual going on in your life. In that case you could request an absentee ballot. So I tend to view this “vote by mail” approach that many people have chosen as not quite right. I like voting in my polling place. I know that for polling places to exist, there is a need for poll workers. And that is why I volunteered to get up at 4:30am on a Tuesday morning and go to work.
