39. I understand what you are saying

Absentee balloting is a very convenient alternative that sometimes one must choose. On the other hand, it does deprive one of the personal experience in interacting with others running the polling station and those who are there to participate. I personally thanked the people working at the polling station today; they were all very professional, very helpful and extremely efficient.

They had even hung instruction posters on the walls for voters to read as they waited in line. They described in detail the whole procedure, which I think would be very helpful to first-time voters. People announced if you are elderly or disabled come to the front of the line. Water fountains were available, and folded chairs were nearby for anyone needing them.

So there is that positive element of personally appearing, but of course that is not always an option for everyone.

Thank you for posting on my thread.

Sam
