When I voted my straight Dem ticket today I met

and talked with the Election Board supervisor for my district. End result is that I will be working the polls in 2020 for both the primary and the general election.

4. We don't usually have any problems at my voting

site but now I get to see that it stays that way.

5. my PA ballot had a straight dem option, but I didn't trust them

So I went through the entire ballot filling in the Democratic candidates' bubbles. I voted to NOT retain any republican judge. (They all were retained any how...)

Then I took a photograph of both sides of the ballot, with my Drivers License AND Voter ID in the photo with the ballot.

If it is EVER needed, I am going to be able to PROVE my vote.

7. There wasn't a straight ticket option on

my ballot. I filled in the bubble on each individual candidate, too. Did not think of taking a photo, though.

Since this was a local election, I knew some of the candidates from being in some of the same community activities. That helped me choose between Dems for options to pick 3 out of 5.

8. I can't believe you were allowed to photograph your ballot

or take any kind of picture! I am an election judge in Texas, and we do not allow cell phones within 100 feet of the voting area. Signs posted everywhere. If I saw someone try to photograph their ballot I'd have to tell them to put it away. This includes just taking a photo of your kid casting his/her first vote. No pictures. Not. One.

Of course now we have a 100% paper ballot system in our county which we used for the first time today. You can vote at any of the 325 precincts in the county no matter where you live and after you make your selections using a touch screen, you print your ballot which you then feed to the scanner where it is counted.

9. congratulations. Working the polls is a real eye opening experience

I realized after my first time as an election worker that our votes here were well protected and that the integrity of the vote in my county is secure.
