Since I won't be in town for the R-U-N-O-F-F-T, I went over to vote at DeKalb County's voter registration office this evening.

The view of the county jail from its front door surely keeps the felons away.

Anyway, after the damnable traffic from Marietta to Decatur, I parked in Mordor's front lot and sauntered over to vote. Once inside the voter registration offices, I was handed an early voting form and a pen, and told to go to the end of the line.

Walking. Walking. Walking. I'm walking. Walking. Walking.

From head to tail, the line from the voting booths stretched easily 100 yards. And that was completely inside the building. I have to say, I was impressed with just how much corridor there was in that building. It went on and on. And on. And the polish on those floors!

The staff was out, helping people get forms filled out properly, so you'd be good to go once you asked for the electronic ballot. Three separate people crosschecked my drivers license and voting form before I got to the e-ballot pickup desk. This meant there were no last minute screw-ups in the line. Despite its length, I was in and out in 45 minutes, with minimal hassle.

DeKalb County made this fairly pain free. I was impressed.
