Election Day – Poll Watching – Gainesville, Florida
Jeff Mason at Gainesville Florida Precinct 25
One disturbing trend was that a number of University of Florida students came to the polling place to vote and were told that they were not registered to vote. They indicated that they were registered by individuals on campus.
I moved to the other entrance to the polling place and had no more problems.
The only crowds of the day were between 7am and 9am. There was a steady stream of people coming to the polls all day, but no rush and no lines after the morning.
I am really happy that I was able to participate and had a really fantastic experience.
