I would like to thank all the dedicated judges at Blythe Park School. I went to vote around 8:40 am where I was 1 of 4 voters there. I easily cast my paper ballot as I believe that was the only option. Was on my way to work by 8:50 ish. I voted and it was seamless.

I wish I could have cast my ballot in this election but unfortunately he voting machines at Blythe Elementary were shut down when showed up about 2:30PM. It appeared they had been shut down for some time as there was a line of voters waiting. Unfortunately , due to prior commitments, I was unable to stand there and wait more than 15 minutes . Over 4 decades of being able to vote , I have missed very few elections even local ones . This was the first due to a failure of the voting machines and the computers they are connected to . This should be a reminder that paper ballots never crash. Let's return to that system. Yes they are more time consuming to count and getting the results takes longer, but our current system has too many glitches and is subject to hacking.

So the template is now set for passing tax increases via referendum. Do it in primary election cycles when voter participation is very low. Energize your support base to show-up while the rest of the community is completely consumed living their lives and not paying attention. Very interesting to see the raw vote numbers for all of these local races and determine participation rates. One would imagine they are very, very low. Look for more of these off-cycle tax increase pushes in the future.
