    But in large urban areas you don't know most of the people who live around you.  I doubt that poll workers in urban areas know any of the people who come in to vote.

      know if a person comes in for years, and is old and frail, and they dont see the person for a few years, and then some kid comes in....

      Do speak to voters, they get to know most everyone.

      Are probably Dem, and take their job seriously and will likely greet you by name after 1-3 votes.

      you don't know most of the people who live around you.
      My gut tells me that just isnt true, my experience tells me no way is it true.

      I just moved into a very rural area of Northern Connecticut, the only people I know in town is the clerk at the Deli, my fellow Dem Municipal Committee members, and the Town Clerk who registered me to vote.
