We had never voted at our 'new' town hall. Actually, it is quite old. Built in 1924, I believe it was also a school. A chalkboard ran the length of the front wall.
Upon entering I was greeted by a lady I've known for decades. I taught her daughter when I was a first grade teacher in the late 70's -early 80's. Another lady was the mother of our former neighbor. Pat had a nice chat with the former owner of one of his favorite bait shops.
A charming building and renewing old acquaintances made for a very pleasant election experience.
The fact that we get a nice long respite from political ads is just icing on the cake.
