The Corner

Report From The Field

I just voted in the semi-bucolic DC exburb of Oakton Viginia and the turnout there is way above anyone’s recent memory. Nobody in the 75 minute-long line, including neighborhood denizens who’ve been there since the early 60’s could ever remember a turnout that big or more than a 10 minute wait. And my wait was the shortest of the day there so far.
