BLT at the Ballot Box

BLT was lucky enough to be selected to help staff a ballot drop box for election day.  BLT offered volunteers and King County Elections had paid staff there too.  It was a very good time and very encouraging to see so many people exercising their franchise.  Also BLT receives a small stipend for helping out.

It rained a little, but was just broken clouds most of the day.  The BLT volunteers did things like direct traffic, help get people get to the ballet box.  Nothing too hard, but all necessary, and all of us were happy to help.

BLT thanks Benita Buchanan, Eric Dickman, Rochelle Flynn, Bill Harding, Russ Kay, Maggie Larrick, Carmen Nott, Karyne Pesho, Pat Price, and Barbara Reamer all of whom faced the cold and helped out at the ballet drop box.  Also of special note Craig Orsinger who came and offered moral support and made a much needed coffee run, and to Janette Nuss who showed up with warm cookies milk and hot chocolate just in time.

Thanks to all who voted and to all who helped out.
