Midday yesterday I voted at Cedar Bluff.
Photos below the fold.
Not sure where to vote? Just follow the signs.
Campaigns making one last pitch.
Big media reporting on the action.
First decision. Is there a good reason why voters can vote at any location during the early voting period, but must vote in a specific precinct on election day? One would think voting machine technology has made that requirement obsolete.
The view inside. I got there a little before noon. There was about a 10-15 minute wait to get through the line at the voting booths.
Casting the ballot. There were only a couple contested local Democratic races on my ballot. At least one of the races didn't even have any candidates. The presidential candidate I voted for lost Tennessee.
Nonetheless, I felt good for fulfilling my civic obligation by voting
