‘Thank you’ to  poll workers

My time in the stifling hot Jackson Street School gym on Tuesday went quickly thanks to the organization and efficiency of the poll workers. While I was there, I saw voters arrive at the school in their air-conditioned cars, spend a few minutes in the hot gym and then return to their cool vehicles with their “I voted” stickers. The poll workers stayed in spite of the heat, and without them we would not be able to vote. So I have two words for them: “Thank you!”
