This is it:
That if it wasn't for women-- especially women over 40-- democracy as we know it would fall apart because there would be no one to run the polls.
I am just curious, how many men did you see running the polls where you went to vote?
Today was the first time I have ever seen male poll workers when I went to vote. Usually whenever I have voted before it has been all women. I realize that more men have to work during the day than women, but still it seems strange that it is always women.
Is this just a strange phenomenon of my own life?
What was the gender distribution of poll workers where you voted?
Also, for all you international readers I'd be curious to know how the polling places are in your country. Are they mainly run by men or women, or a good balance?
Personally, I think it is pretty awesome that so many women work the polls in our country and keep democracy alive and well.
These women would be proud.
I sure love old pictures of suffragettes, especially ones pushing babies.
Though, I'm glad strollers have gotten a bit more high-tech since then.
