Election Day 2012

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – On Election Day polls opened at 7:00am, but I didn’t get going till 9:30am. My first stop was to vote at Smith school. After I voted, I took a few pictures before I headed off to the Election Commission.

“The elections today have been busy, very busy,” said Rita Wilson, the chairwoman of the Montgomery County Election Commission.  A lot of people decided that they wanted to vote today, but they had not bothered to check and see where they were supposed to vote.  So we are having a big backlog of them coming in and phone calls about that.  But I think that people are really excited about election day,” according to Wilson.
