After my 10:00 class this morning, I walked out of the Fine Arts building as usual. I was shocked to see that the main hallway was a polling place for today. I knew Dominican would be a polling place, but I figured that the polls would be located in a more concealed location.
I voted today, and in the 2004 election, in my home town of 5,000 people, Spring Grove, Ill. Well...the polling place has never been crowded (like I saw on the news a couple days ago) and the polling booths are in a concealed conference room. If I was to vote at Dominican, or any other open-area polling place, I don't think I'd like people walking through...especially not loud, obnoxious college students (no offense anyone). I think it would be completely distracting. How about you?
