Foot Traffic

    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

Melissa Tan, 2, waited in line with her father so he could cast his vote at the Covenant United Methodist Church on Coldwater Road Tuesday afternoon.

At the Polls

Shooter's Comments: Going from voting precinct to voting precinct today looking for "the shot" I really didn't see too many children. There were a few in strollers, but really no little ones were about.

It wasn't until I got to the poll location with the longest lines that I really noticed any children. This little girl caught my eye, mostly because she was just holding her dad's hand and seeming to enjoy the time with him. It was nice to see a young child exposed to the process of voting and, knowing that it wasn't torture for her, made it all the sweeter to see her leave the polls in the arms of her father.
