View from a Lower Merion election judge

Carolyn Davis reports:

11:19 a.m.

Linda Tolbert, election judge for Lower Merion’s 13th ward, 1st precinct, at the Levering Mill House Senior Citizen Center on Levering Mill Road, said voters came and sat on the steps at 6 a.m. so they could be among the first to vote.

By 6:30, about 20 people were waiting. Then the line grew to be about 30 people, reaching down Levering and around the corner at Bentley Ave.

“At 7, we started running them through," Tolbert said. "Each person took about half-a-minute.”

They always get a lot of parents bringing kids, ever since schools began closing on election day.

It seemed there were  more coming in this morning.
