Monday was to be my big day. I blogged about it. I was going to quickly early vote and check on foreclosures that were auctioned at 10:00 am. I'd be outa there by 10:15 am.
I walked into the lobby and saw a line! A fairly long line of voters and probably 6 or 8 helpers. I decided that since I was there I might as well vote as planned and the foreclosure would soon be held in the lobby also.
Wrong! There were so many early voters the foreclosure was probably held outside. I couldn't leave my place in line so I missed the foreclosure.
That line was slow and it kept getting longer and longer. It took me about 40 minutes to get up to the desk where they took my identification and passed me on.
My bragging about killing two birds with one stone didn't work. I got one bird only. I am glad, however, that I've cast my ballot.
According to the Arkansas-Democrat Gazette 21,560 people had voted early by 5:00 pm in the state of Arkansas. 9689 had returned absentee ballots in Arkansas.
