Polling Place Experience
Posted in the Lake City Forum

I don't participate in early or absentee voting, so on Tuesday, I went to my assigned Polling Place to vote. As I arrived at the Polling Place, a Church on Branford Highway, I observed what appeared to be a hundred signs for various candidates, as well as advocates for or the candidates themselves out waving at me. While I found the scene to be entertaining, I did not feel swayed, irritated or intimidated in anyway by the activity and continued on into the polling place. As I approached the door that I normally enter, I encountered an elderly African American man, who asked my voter precinct. I showed him my ID and voter registration card and he directed me around the corner to another door where my precinct was voting this time. The man was very polite and I did not feel intimidated or disenfranchised. As I entered the Polling Place, I was greeted by some Caucasian elderly individuals, who were also polite and helpful and also did not appear to be intimidating. I was asked for my ID and I presented my Florida Driver's License, the poll worker verified my address, had me sign in and directed me to another table where I was given the appropriate ballot. I completed my ballot, took it to the lady at the door, who had me insert the ballot in the machine that scans the ballot. The lady then gave me an I Voted sticker and I left. At no time during this process did I encounter any person or groups that appeared to intimate me into not voting or voting for someone other the candidate of my choice. I thought the whole process, while important, was a bit boring. To be perfectly honest, I was hoping for a little controversy so I would have something to complain about. Oh well maybe in November!!
What was your voting experience????
