At the Polls

The Observer’s Ted Bressman sends this quick note from his morning with two people who couldn’t wait to vote: Eliot Spitzer and Mayor Bloomberg.

Elliot Spitzer cast his vote at Lillie Devereaux Blake public school, home of the pale male, this morning at 6:46 a.m.

“You always worry on election day,” Spitzer said, “but I feel great.”

With a daughter on each arm, he entered the voting booth. As for his vote for attorney general? “I’m sworn to secrecy. I had two daughters in there, and I’m not telling you which daughters.”

At 7:26, as Mayor Bloomberg entered the very same voting booth to vote in the Republican primary, he managed this optimistic message: “Elections are always important. Many countries give their lives to vote. I’m proud to exercise my own franchise.”
