I biked down to the Brown County Courthouse to vote at 7:02 this morning. About 40 people were already in line front of me.
County auditor Maxine Fischer had five check-in stations, 2 ballot hander-outers, and 20 booths and 8 seats with dividers at which to vote. I signed my affidavit, filled out my ballot, slid that sacred paper into the box under Donna’s watchful eye, and was back on the street by 7:17 a.m.
And the Brown County Courthouse was aglow with first light.
It’s a beautiful day. It’s a beautiful democracy. Go vote.
