A Brief Note on the Election

I voted today.  It was the last day for early voting, and a lot of people were there because they wanted to avoid long lines on Tuesday.  All I can say is that if there is a lot of indifference in this election, it isn't showing at the polling placed.  The line snaked across the voting place, out the door, and long enough that they had to bend it to avoid obstructing traffic in the parking lot.  This may have been in part because it was a long ballot and took a long time to fill out.  But the interest seems to be genuine.

(PS:  One clear difference between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.  Albuquerque, as a larger town, has a lot more judges up for election or retention, which makes the ballot longer).
