My voting experience was very smooth, for which I am extremely grateful. I was very nervous about voting, I think perhaps because it was my first time voting in the town in which my husband and I recently purchase our first home. I'm not sure what I thought might go wrong, but I was strangely anxious about it.
South Hadley is a small New England town, and my precinct votes at the Town Hall. There was definitely a lot of action at the polls, but even so, I did not wait in any lines and was given a ballot with no problem at all (by a very sweet old woman) and pointed to a line of maybe twenty voting booths, several of which were open. Our ballots were the "fill in the oval" variety, and I admit to having perhaps been overly meticulous with my oval-filling, so I was in there for a while. Afterward, I signed out and put my ballot into a machine.
All the poll workers were extremely nice, and everything was just as easy as can be.
If only my story could be everyone's story, right?
