I signed up today to be a pollworker. I have to go to a training session in a couple weeks, and then I get to be one of those blue haired ladies that signs you in when you go to vote. (OK, so it won't be my hair that's blue, only my scarf, wink, but you get the idea.)
I'm actually looking forward to it, though it could be a fairly dull day. Even if I do end up yawning a lot, it's a great chance to get a feel for the people in my new hometown. A chance, perhaps to make a couple friends among my co-workers. A new and different way to participate in the election process.
I just hope no one freaks at a woman wearing a scarf as a pollworker...
