I dunno. Probably the Early Bird at our polling place still gets to stand in line and maybe say Hi to our neighbor, The Democrat, who has a high degree of civic involvement and who, being self-employed and able to free up the time, works every election helping check people in -- in Indiana, you show ID and they (it's a team of two, who check one another) look you up on a big list, put a tick mark next to your name if/when they find you and have crosschecked your address, and hand you a ballot. She and the other election workers will be at that for most of a very long day, which rates all kinds of extra points with me no matter what one's party affiliation.
We have a new polling place, a big Methodist church right on Meridian Street. Unlike the previous location, there's all kinds of parking. The lot has entrances and exits right on very busy Meridian Street, and maybe off quiet(er) Illinois Street as well, so traffic arrangements could be interesting.
