Election day. The voter needs

Ok, let's make a list of necessities voters must have for the long lines. Even though I have already voted, other voters in states that can not vote until election day may need some pointers to prepare for the long wait.

Here are my thoughts....

1. Stand in line prior to opening of the voting precinct. Perhaps this will shorten your wait considerably.... kinda like black Friday.

2. Snacks! Healthy snacks!

3. Bring a power supply pac if you have one to charge up your phone.

4. Share phone power if your with a friend or family member by watching a video together, rotate phones if another movie is required.

5. Bring a book.

6. Bring a folding chair if it allowed.

7. Bring plenty of water.

8. Bring a rain coat or umbrella just in case.

9. A coat if temperature gets chilly through the night.

10. Wear comfortable shoes. Guys wear tennis shoes rather than dress shoes and women, tennis shoes rather than high heels.

11. Bring wipes and masks!

12. Have your identification!

Okay... add to the list if I over look something.

2. Good list -- add warm socks, long underwear if it will be cold.

If you are just standing or sitting for extended periods, you will get much colder than you normally would. Make sure your feet and legs will stay plenty warm. You can always unbutton/unzip your jacket if you get too warm, but if you are too cold you can't do anything to get warmer if you're wearing all your layers.

3. In places that have closed down the toilet facilities.

they will need a nearby (walking distance but far enough away that it won't get broken into) parked RV with a toilet and a second person to hold their place in line while they walk that couple of blocks and take care of everyday needs.

4. Unless the polling places have been severely cut,

there likely will be a lot less people voting on election day, since most would have already voted. And most voting on election day will be Trumpers.

5. A mask, and a replacement one.

I know, it shouldn't have to be mentioned, but it's worth reminding people.
