Election day – and the ballots are pouring in

August 18th, 2009 · No Comments

Dale is trying to drop off his ballot at the official ballot drop-off box at the Ballard Neighborhood Center but the drop box is overflowing. He’s called the elections office and so have several other people there. Here’s a closeup of the box:

And here’s someone trying to figure out how to get his ballot in the stuffed box.

 

Dale said “it’s literally a case of stuffing the ballot box,” as he finally was able to cram it in the box.

Update 8:55 a.m.: Elections officials just arrived to empty the drop box, so now there’s plenty of room for more ballots.

Ballots must be in the drop boxes by 8 p.m., or postmarked by the post office by today.
