Monkey King Has Voted

I voted on a paper ballot, and was struck by the age of the poll workers. Every single one was a white-haired retiree, and 11 out of 12 were women. What happens when that generation of poll workers is no more?

In any case, the booths were all full, and there was a short line. I'm always pleased to see people voting in person; it's a bit of the theatre of democracy that tickles me.

Filling in the ballot was the easy part, of course. Waiting for the early returns from the East Coast is going to take some electoral fortitude. Anyone got a line on Internet exit polls?
