I voted today.

Today is the 1st day for early voting in the state of New York and the 2 polling places in my county opened at 10AM. The weather yesterday was a beautiful sunny day at a warm 80 F. Today it was a cold 45 F and I ended up standing in line for about an hour. I wish that I had remembered my winter gloves but I dressed for the colder weather for the most part.

The parking lot was full when I arrived at Cornell Cooperative Extension and people were parking on the shoulder of the road where there were no parking anytime signs. It was a little chaotic with people coming in and leaving in the 2 different entrances/exits and with oncoming road traffic at 45mph. There were no caution signs and I felt that that someone should have been there to help direct traffic. Drivers were trying to leave and they couldn't see with all the vehicles parked on the side of the road; by some miracle there wasn't any accidents while I was there.

I didn't take a photo, but once we got closer to the building there were signs on the front door that masks were required to enter the building. Everyone was wearing a mask while waiting in line outside and everyone was complying with this beneficial rule while inside.

There were 12 of these individual voting booths inside the building. The gentleman in the red shirt sanitized each booth after it was used. The pens that we used to mark our selections were collected in the area where the paper ballot machine were and sanitized before another person used it.. Upon leaving, the outdoor line was still quite long.

Biden/Harris signs in my neighborhood.

I have 2 different neighbors that keep adding to their Biden/Harris support signs in their yard. I'm sharing the images for my DU family.

This 1st house has other Biden/Harris banners displayed on the other front half of the house. I decided not to share that section of the house since the actual number address would be visible. I was out for a walk and let them know that I appreciated their signs. They said thank you and to make sure that I vote. I told them that I always vote straight Democratic.

Here is the 2nd house that had these 2 lovely signs.

As I was walking by today, they recently added this gem.

This is encouraging for Niagara County. As far as Presidential elections are concerned, my area is heavily Democratic with the exception for the 1980 and 2016 Presidential elections.
