Brooklyn, NY. Our local middle school. Just under two hours.
City workers get Election Day off (a vestige of a corrupt time in NYC politics, when the city staff were sent out to get out the vote for Tammany Hall). So I figured I'd go at 9:00 and miss the rush hour crowd. The line was all the way around the block and I enjoyed pretty much every minute of it.
I live in what I consider a very politically aware and politically active neighborhood, but I've never seen anything like this. There was such a festive air and so many comments about Democracy in Action. I'd brought the newspaper and Sunday's magazine (because I hadn't done the puzzle). The puzzle turned out to have a Spider-man theme, which somehow seems like a good omen.
My sister told me she had said a Shehechiyanu after voting and I thought that was a great idea, so I did, too.
