Primary election day in my county. I worked at the polls from seven in the morning until eight at night. My voting place is in a school - so this was my view: an institutional hallway with glimpses through the fire door of sunshine, trees, and blue sky. I saw and spoke with many of my neighbors over the course of the day, though, and now as I watch the late returns on TV and online, I see that a number of progressive candidates either won or made a surprisingly good showing. A good day.

Lovely drawing, and I'm glad to har the progressives did well.

For some reason I found your drawing very 1970's. Just a delight. It must be satisfying to work over twelve hours for a civic cause, and then receive a topping on top when some interesting progressive candidates win.

and a good drawing.

Thanks so much. And today, when I could go outside, it rained! (But our gardens needed it...)

I love this sketch. I've worked at elections too. It was just like this.

The ladies at our Voting place do much much needlework during their long day.
Embroidery, knitting, hemming a dress for a daughter going to the Prom.

Your drawing tells a good story.
