I Decided to Vote on Election Day instead at an Early Voting Site

 The coronavirus situation has certainly complicated voting in this presidential election.  In other years I've simply gone to the polls at the local elementary school and voted.  It was usually a very quick process taking no longer than 10 minutes.  I have seen on the TV news that early voting sites have long lines requiring people to wait a few hours to cast their ballot.  Likely, the process is slowed by the necessity to sanitize the areas regularly.  The mayor and governor have also criticized the Board of Elections for not having enough poll workers.

The early voting for my area is about 1 1/2 miles from my home. I would either walk 30 minutes or take a bus to get there. If I have to wait on a line, I may as well do it at my local school which is right around the corner.  I also think there will be more poll workers on the site on Election Day.  I;ll bring some reading material with me to help pass the time on the line.
