A number of states are holding their Democratic primary elections today.

Here in PA, there's a special election just for the state congressional district I'm in. I voted. I went at 10:30 AM because I knew that was one of the slowest times, with the least people.

Instead of driving the two blocks to the polling place, I walked. And, since my gym is closed, after I finished voting, I walked an extra three quarters of a mile on the way home.

Choosing to go at that time worked. I was the only one in line when I arrived and no-one else showed up until I was leaving. They were elderly.

I brought a paper towel to use to touch things. I used it to turn the door knob. I brought my own ballpoint pen to sign the voter log and to mark the ballot, even though they were wiping down pens after each use.

I was thrilled to use the new opscan paper ballot system instead of the previous all electronic system.

I used the hand sanitizer they had available as I was leaving. I felt pretty safe going through the process.

By 10:30, about 70 people had voted. Last November, about 200 people voted throughout the whole day. I'd say that a turnout of 70 by 10:30 is actually pretty good.

What about your experience?
