DBF alerted me this afternoon to this delightful blogpost, on the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel blog:
Robert W. C. Kennedy voted at the East Library on North Ave. in Milwaukee and found it rather handy.
“Some voters waiting in the long line that had already formed shortly after 7 a.m. were not entirely certain if they were at the correct polling place,” he wrote in an e-mail.
“Library staff, in the midst of their regular daily duties, offered to verify the location for those in line, thus saving them the grief of arriving at the registration table after a half-hour or 45-minute wait on queue only to find that they were at the wrong poll,” he wrote. “And they did so without shushing any voters!”
