Seems like I lucked out when I voted around 1:00 p.m. this afternoon. I walked into my polling place and had two people in front of me. I heard the poll workers asking for ID so I had mine out and waiting when it was my turn. I asked the guy in charge if it’s been slow. He said I came at the perfect time. Things had been slammed since the polls opened at 7:00 a.m. Just after lunch was their first chance to breathe. I was voter number 413.
Tonight, as it usually does, promises to be an interesting one in the newsroom. I’ll be stationed at Kathleen Kane’s headquarters in downtown Scranton. If she’s elected she will be the first woman elected Attorney General in PA, and the first democrat elected to the position.
She is heavily favored to win over her Republican challenger David Freed. You have about two more hours to cast your ballot if you haven’t already. Even if you don’t consider yourself a politico, there’s no denying politics are exciting on election night. We’ll be on the air on WNEP2 from 8:00-10:30 p.m. Then of course there’s Newswatch 16 at 11:00 on good ol’ WNEP.
