Driving into the parking lot of the polling place for Algonquin 7 and 19 precincts, there is a forest of signs.
Lots of candidate signs at Crystal Lake’s Park District Main Beach parking lot. I still think Jim Harrison selected the best color combination. It was the one I used in my candidate days.
Election Day was nippy at the Crystal Lake Park District’s Main Beach House. The wind was briskly blowing off the lake.
No campaigning beyond 100 feet from the door .
There were the obligatory signs pointing to the polling place’s entrance.
The polling place room must have been overheated.
Nevertheless, the door was left open
Although it was about fifty degrees outside at noon, the big room at the Main Beach House was warm enough the judges left the door open.
This was almost like a Presidential election.
The four polling stations next to Crystal Lake were filled as I took this photo.
The election judges didn’t have time to get too bored.
This shows the Algonquin 19 judges in the foreground and the Algonquin 7 judges in the background.
The youngest Republican judge had brought Lee Scobel’s “Case for Christ,” just in case he had spare time.
A mom brought her daughter to the polls to vote in Algonquin 7.
I used to bring my son to the polls to vote.
People put their ballots into the counting machine
The next Presidential election he will be blackening the squares on a ballot.
