Quoth the me, after dodging a pair of signs in the middle of the sidewalk, then asking a passerby just what they were and finding out they were VOTE HERE signs: Oh my gosh, it's February 19!

Yes, I voted. Bad me, I almost forgot! I'm sure people have walked into polling places for elections, primary or otherwise, carrying stranger things than a shoulder bag full of work and other miscellanae, a white cane, and dinner. I can't think of any just now, though. :) Voter 588 at 6:15 this evening, and the worst part was navigating past the loud vacuum cleaner.

Now it can snow. :P

I freaking hate when signs are in the middle of sidewalks. Or we all do really.

We didn't get a white cane till we were a freshman in high school, and have had pretty shoddy O&M training since then, so we're not always so great at the obstacle detection stuff, but yeah.
We're pretty sure there've been stranger things brought into voting places. This also leaves us with a fellow blind person question.
Does your city/county have polling assistance such as talking ballot machines, or do you require sighted assistance? I'm not sure what California has yet, but we'd love to find out.

In s way, it’s good that those signs were obvious?
