I decided to vote early today to avoid the predicted crowds. It didn't help. I got stuck behind a rocket scientist who probably hasn't voted in 10 years, if ever.
There's more than 8.3 million registered voters for today's Pennsylvania primary and with my luck, I end up behind a person who didn't understand that independent voters can't vote in Pennsylvania's closed primary.
The woman wanted to vote in the Democratic primary but didn't bother to change her registration from independent. It took three poll workers to explain to her why she couldn't vote.
She finally gave up and asked if she can come back in Novemember.
And she wasn't the first dumb voter in line today at my local polling site. In the first two hours of voting, poll workers turned away a half-dozen people who didn't know that you had to be registered as either a Democrat or Republican to vote in the primary.
It's going to be a long day.
