Good ole days early voting 2004 no covid

Found!  An old newspaper clipping of early voting.

I stumbled upon this old clipping.  Don't we all clip family pictures from the newspaper?  How this one ended up on the front page of the local newspaper is a mystery BUT it means so much right now.  It makes us think of the good old days.....no masks......no safe distancing.....just stand in line to early vote.

Another sad change from 2004 to 2020 is the demise of so many newspapers.  This one, The Daily Citizen, used to be delivered almost daily.  Now it is delivered three times a week by the US Post Ofice.  It is also very thin, almost no news, and still struggling to stay alive at all.

Let's go back to the Good Ole Days!

Boy wish we would not have this covid 19, I know of people that are still going to stand in line with no mask they said.

I went very early this year and there were masks and social distancing in the lines.

Ah, the good ole days, Barbara.  It's great that you made the news!  Looking at that photo, I'll bet you couldn't have imagined what we would go through to vote this year.

Myrl, you are so right.  Staying at home a lot makes one go through old saved stuff and that is how I found that clipping.
