Sunday Early Voting

 The only Sunday Voting took place yesterday and there were hundreds of people voting in Cuyahoga County.  They were only open from 1 to 5 p.m and the line was about an hour long.  We took over 7 homeless people and four did not want to wait the hour for the line to move.  There were lots of church groups, and many politicians who showed up.

Saturday was a miserable day, and the lines were a lot shorter.  The Board was open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m and there was only a short wait.  On Sunday, the street was closed and they were only letting vans in to drop people off.  There was a festive atmosphere with many groups holding rallies across from the Board of Elections.  There were sign holders and lots of "souls going to the polls." There were people dropping off their completed ballots and people in cars with amplifying equipment pitching their candidates as they were competing with car stereos amplifying the Brown's game yesterday. 

The market spoke in Cleveland that voters like voting on Sunday and they want more of it.  With all the people dressed in their Sunday best showing up and casting a ballot with their fellow congregants, this seemed like a popular activity that people appreciated.
