Virginia Report

Just returned from voting in Prince William County. When we got to the school gymnasium that contains the voting booths, all the lights were out, as if that room alone had lost power. The voting booths continued to operate because they have batteries. The lights came back on after a few minutes. It’s tempting to shriek “VOTING IRREGULARITY!” but in fact I don’t think it affected anything. I would characterize voting as neither especially light nor especially heavy. Drizzle outside.
