The lines have suddenly shrunk tremendously.  In fact,there isn't really a line any more, just a few people standing around. There's no one waiting outside for a chance to get inside to vote. There are empty booths.

Empty Booths

That's a far cry from this morning when people were jumping the fence and the closed and locked gates to get in line.

There hasn't been a child in here for the past half hour. More people are leaving than coming in right now.

More Leaving than Coming

One of the voters played "Hide and Seek" with Itzl, but gave up when he kept his eye on her and never lost where she was.  She said he was "too smart" for her. Xoco loves playing Hide and Seek, she gets so excited when she finds you, but Itzl, he knows where you are at all times.  Out of sight is not out of mind for him.  Out of sight just means he needs to pay closer attention.

Xoco also loves Peek-a-boo - her little tail just blurs when she "finds" you again.


I expect there'll be a final burst of people really close to 7:00 pm our time.

But for now, it's slow and quiet.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
