Historic Voter Turnout, Thanks in Part to Bake Sale

Here is the line outside the elementary school where I vote. Wrapped around the block. At 6:30am.

The PTA was holding a bake sale inside the school. Young entrepreneurs determined that the best sales strategy was to carry trays of scones, cookies and brownies outside to the people in line.

“Get something to eat to help pass the time! Fifty cents each!” a redheaded 3rd grader hollered.

“Two for a dollar sound better,” her friend opined.

“Two for a dollar!” they both shouted as they continued down the sidewalk.

There were also small cups of coffee for $1 each. The girls yelled, “You know you didn’t have enough coffee before you left the house this morning!”

Smart kids, I thought, as I reached into my purse for a dollar bill.
