I don't remember when I started doing this; it must've been when I was still living on the Island, and I'm glad I could see this through to the end. We're changing over to all mail-in balloting after this election, which makes a lot of sense, but I'll mess the community feel. The High School staff were GREAT - always helpful and often they plied us with coffee & doughnuts. I enjoyed watching the hurry-blurry of the kids rushing by too; they were polite and curious and full of energy!

Oath of Inspector: The Final Chapter
Tuesday, for the last time, I take the Oath as Voting Inspector at Mercer Island High School. It's been many years of long days, but definitely something I'm proud of.
