Seven pages of voter registrations.  “Please find your name, verify your information, and sign in. Welcome!”

Bodies move.

Two groups meeting the viability requirement.


Now three groups meeting the viability requirement.

Electing representation for the county convention.

Smooth, efficient, and timely.

Resolutions for the platform committee.

Neighbors sharing ideas and opinions.

Neighbors together.

Our democracy at work.

One hour. Votes counted. Tabulated. Reported.

. . . And then the paperwork. Three envelopes to fill. Three sets of specifics to organize.

Another hour.

Caucus 2020 in the books.

Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. Thank you for being part of the process!

  2. What a poetic summary of the process at work. Democracy can be messy, but it sounds like your experience was not.

  3. Not sure anyone not working the polls knows all that is involved in the process,

  4. I can feel the pace with your structure! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow.

  5. Great to know you’re actively in that process, Fran… even if everything didn’t go as planned!
