Not being able to put weight on my right foot would have made standing in line today a pain, and only knowing we may find someone willing to put wheelchair back into the car, allowed me to vote this year.
You don't have absentee or mail in ballots where you live? You might want to look into that if mobility is such an issue.
I'm honestly curious: Do people actually have long lines to wait in while voting? Every time I've voted where I live, there's usually more poll workers in the polling place than voters. I get a mail in ballot (so I can just fill it out in the comfort of my dinning room table instead of in a booth), but drop it off on election day, which generally involves sauntering in, handing the envelope to the worker, having them verify that I signed and dated it, watch them drop it in the box, then pick out a fancy sticker and walk out. Seriously, like 1 minute from the time I park until I'm back in the car driving away.
Suppose it helps that I intentionally go during a less busy time (so like between 10AM and 11AM, or 1PM to 2PM). I imagine trying to vote early in the morning or late afternoon might be different, but aren't employers required to allow you time to go vote now? Or is that just a hippie dippy California thing? Dunno. Just curious how things differ from area to area. Edited, Nov 8th 2016 3:06pm by gbaji
