Election Judgement Day

Today Julia and I were Election Judges for the first time, for the Montgomery County Board of Elections.

I had an very unusually interesting and cushy assignment at Asbury Methodist Village – it’s an unbelievably big and amenitied retirement campus, but only the residents were voting there, and even they had particularly low turnout this election (though still relatively high); too, I was a Line Manager, and there was no line. I had a good and distinctive experience. For example, how often do you get to chat with someone who gave a lecture at their retirement community because they worked on the Nuremburg trials? Also, one of my bosses was a gay person with a trans relative who used to be very active in the Episcopal Church, including the LGBT-inclusion process.

Poor J had a much longer and harder gig at a school, but she did really well and also enjoyed herself.
