SF Writer Doing Her Civic Duty

SF writer and Kenyon biology professor Joan A. Slonczewski was part of that election mess in Gambier. She was working as an observer.

"On a local level the supervisors here today did an excellent job of managing the voting process. Prior planning on the part of the Board of Elections was appalling. They knew how many voters we had registered and there was no contingency plan. The planning was very poor — 1,300 voters, two machines, 20 voters an hour; you do the math. It just doesn’t work," said Slonczewski.

Rest up, ma'am! Your country thanks you...especially the parts that didn't have to stand around for hours and hours....
