Precinct 414 – Thelma Crenshaw Elementary School, Midlothian, Virginia
This is where I will be spending election day tomorrow, Precinct 414 just southwest of Richmond, Virginia. I am going, with others, to ensure that the election process is run fairly and to help anyone who has questions or needs help to vote. The polls open at 6 am and close at 7pm and we will be there from 5:30 am until every vote is counted. I’m very excited to take part in what is a historic election, not just for the United States, but for the world. I will be Twittering and photoblogging my progress throughout the day so if you are interested you can follow me. I will upload my thoughts througout the day as well as photos of the action on the ground. Precinct 414 is in Chesterfield County and a report on the February 2008 Primary Elections in that county found that a number of polling stations ran out of ballots. This issue, and excessive wait times are my two main concerns at this point as I think across the nation, this election will see unprecedented turnout. It is going to be long day, but I hope a happy one.
