On the way home I ran past the back of the Gowanus Canal

So the vibe where I vote in Park Slope was cool. No lines, No stress. Everyone seamed happy to embrace new technology. I took the kids to the school I actually graduated from in 1974 so they could vote with their Grandmother. I was cool to go back to PS 52 in Sheepshead Bay. The gym was so much bigger when I was there.
Anyway, in Sheepshead Bay nobody was happy. (I don't really think there are that many happy people on Sheepshead Bay anyway...)
My MIL had no problem voting, but she saw someone show the voting official their license and was afraid she was going to have to prove her identity. So I eavesdropped, The women was not being asked to prove her identity, she was just showing how to spell her name.
Also there were complaints that the letters were to small. They are the same size as they were on the old machines.
I guess the only people that actually vote in Sheepshead Bay at 2 PM are over 70 years old because everyone else is at work.
It is part of the culture of New Yorkers to complain. Shut up and vote
