Waiting to vote

Charlotte libraries allow absentee balloting, and they’ve become the poll of choice for many. It’s easy to see why: several weeks of polls being open, convenient locations and Saturday and Sunday hours.

This afternoon I dropped by the one branch and it was awe-inspiring to see the long line in front of the library of those waiting to vote. There looked to be hundreds waiting for their chance to vote.

A librarian said staff have worked extra hours to let all those waiting in lines each day vote. It’s great that voting is more convenient thanks to the libraries.
