My polling place at p.s. 9 in Prospect Heights was very organized and ran smoothly, as it tends to based on my experiences there. However, the machine for my district was out of order and I was required to fill out a paper ballot with no privacy. And then insert it into a cardboard box that was sealed with one strip of masking tape. Yikes. The volunteers were all very helpful and cheery…but still….that scared me.
