    When I went to school, we never got election day off. When I worked at the schools, we never got election day off.

    How many people even wait until Election Day to vote these days?

    I never got Election Day off because voting was never done at schools where I grew up (or at least, not at my schools). Heading to a middle school tomorrow afternoon, though!

    I think trying reducing folk’s voting opportunities signals the beginning of the slow demise of that political party.

    As I age, it frustrates me that my body won’t do what it use to do. As I watch this slow inevitable decline, I fruitlessly misdirect my anger outward sometimes. And some unscrupulous politicians use this knowledge by trying to stoke it with misinformation, disinformation (lies) and fear mongering for their own political gain regardless of the corrosive effects it has on us all. The foreign countries using social media bots use this tactic as well, current reporting has shown. So I’m in favor of a one month campaign season ending on Nov. 8.

    I remember both going to school on Election Day; and voting in a school with classes in session. I never experienced any interruption in either case. Today mu precinct is in a park shelter. My church is the next closest; but no schools.

    My earliest memory is my parents having to vote in a tiny 10’x10’ shed temporarily set out in the neighborhood for that purpose. It was the start of the weather factor in turnouts.

    Our (HS) students’ behaviors were so embarrassing (school was a voting place)……………..Voting Day is now a day off.

    In our school, they didn’t close classes. They just closed off the gym, which was also the cafeteria, which meant no lunch on Election Day.

    I not only got Election Day off at school, for a while I got it off at work. Government building. Run by actual politicians, they thought it was more important than Christmas.

    Those kids who got Election Day off to keep them out of the way – they are the angry adults of today.

    I’ve never mailed in a vote or voted electronically. My vote is tallied at the voting centre, usually in the early stages. After four years, I have a pretty good idea of who I want elected.

    I wish we got school off for voting; in my state, we always had to go to school on election day, which was pretty inconvenient for the schools that were also polling places.

    “When did all the old people get so angry?”

    As soon as you understand about what is being lost in the last few years you will be angry at one half of us old people. Freedoms that were destroyed in exchange for selfishness, culture lost for hatred, livelihood squandered for a few to be rich beyond use, community destroyed for power of a few egomaniacs.

    A significant part of Earths surface around the equator will be uninhabitable within 100 years if the climate change wears on as it does now.

    Waiting for news reports from areas where the ‘election watchers’ have undertaken to ‘purify’ the process by intimidation and insult, while wearing guns and claiming innocent interest in the results.

    While using schools as a voting site is common getting the day off from classes most assuredly is not…

    my observation is both angry and apathy. The main theme is why should I care about the future when the younger people don’t care about my past.

    The old people got angry when Fox “news” and the right wing media structure joined in the Continuous Campaigning.

    Just a coincidence, though.

    See, part of the problem is one group of old people made a bunch of random old people angry, who in turn got lots of people they know angry, and the common theme with them is that you can sell them any old unpolished t.u.r.d. as long as it’s painted red, white, and blue. Doesn’t matter how bad it stinks, or whether it has any use, those colors magically make them want to support the unpolished t.u.r.d. beyond anything else they’ve ever wanted.

    The other side of this problem is that a different group of old people have been supposedly in opposition to that first group for over 40 years and yet somehow their alleged principled opposition has resulted in massive political losses over that 40 year time span, all while they continue to try to tell us that only THEY are able to stand and fight this battle when we can all clearly see that they are not fighting at all.

    In my state the county clerk can set up polling places in schools. At poll working training she said that the county and schools agreed to close schools because some of the Caulfield’s old people were angry because they were having to walk too far. What’s sad about that is some of the angry people were younger than me.

    I think we should scrap the whole idea of voting for our “leaders”. It has become much too unwieldy, attracts too many power&money-hungry candidates, and requires them to appeal to the lowest of common denominators in the populace, while prostrating themselves to powerful self-interests for campaign funds. The fact that we ever elect someone worth having is statistically a fluke.

    Not that it is a paragon of finding the truth, but could we do worse if we chose our state and federal officeholders the same way we choose juries? Each year, the name of every adult of voting age goes into a pot where they are randomly selected for vacant offices.

    You don’t want to be a Senator? Fine. There’s a form you must submit to be excused from your civic duty. If you manage to do that, you are obviously fit for duty.

    You will serve a two-year stint in the halls of power, earn a nice pension, and go back to what you were doing before. There are no repeats, even after a break in service. If you want to keep the job, you are obviously unfit for duty.

    Knowing something about the job has never been a prerequisite for most of our elected positions. Don’t believe me? Check out the extensive education and training offered to all new members of Congress. It starts with “Bathrooms” and works up to a high-school level of Schoolhouse Rock’s, “I’m Just a Bill”.

    Every four years, each body promotes from its ranks a Chair and Deputy, currently known as “POTUS”, “Veep”, “Guv”, “LtGuv”, etc. who may be re-elected.

    If nothing else, this approach would guarantee that the economic, racial, and sociopolitical makeup of our leadership bodies would more closely match the citizenry than the rich, white, male, money-grubbing lot we seem to get from the current system. It would truly be “a government of our peers”.

    it would be nice some day to be able to chose who I want rather than trying to kick out or keep out who I don’t want.

    I used to enjoy voting in schools. It was a chance to see the artwork and other decorations on the walls.
