Lining Up to Vote

You want lines? I'll give you lines!

November 1952. 39th Street School.

That, dear heart, is a line.

Some of these fine people had to wait an hour and a half to vote. Only two machines were in operation (no, not InkAVotes) and of the 629 voters, half had voted by noon.

Another fine picture from the Herald Examiner Collection online from the Los Angeles Public Library.

For the record, I worked at a voting site today. Everyone should do so once in a while. Just so you can be smug about it, even if everything went wrong. . . which, sadly, it did.
