This was my first year as a poll worker in Glendale. I recommend it for anyone who questions whether our democratic system is working.
First, a number of parents brought in their teen children to vote for the first time. In one case, a young lady, when presented with her "I Voted" sticker, asked if her younger brother could have one so he could show his friends at school that his sister had voted.
Second, another young lady, who now lives and works in Santa Monica but is still registered here in Glendale, left work early and drove through heavy evening traffic to arrive just in time to vote, saying "I'm glad I made it. I didn't want to miss my chance to vote."
