Voting at Hillside without Lipstick

Hillside School, where I took my 4-year-old son to vote, was packed this morning. It was a scene filled with parents, Mayor Jerry Fried and neighbors. Of course, I forgot to put on lipstick.

Michelle Lewis, the county board member seated at left, said voter turnout has been high today. Mayor Fried said he expected a lot of people and wished us a “happy election.”

Did you vote? Did you see any challengers lurking about? I missed that drama, but I did hear whispering and gossip around the voting booths and outside on the steps. It’s going to be a long day.

My fingers and toes are crossed for my candidate.
