What’s Happening on Election Day in Woodbury?

What have you seen around town today? Long lines? Deals at stores or restaurants for wearing an “I Voted” sticker? Tell us in the comments section.

At Woodbury City Hall on Election Day, more people had voted by 9 a.m. than did the entire day in 2010, said Dan Nalipinski, election judge. 

Still, voters were being ushered through the queue fairly smoothly. 

“We know how it works. We’ve got everything covered,” said Nalipinski, who has been an election judge since 2006. “We don’t anticipate any hitches in the giddy-up.”

However, two ballots had been kicked out of the machine, he said, one when someone filled in too many names and another because of a stray mark.

Via our Facebook page, from Jeri: Woodbury has very reasonable precinct sizes. We voted at East Ridge HS at about 11:15 a.m. to avoid the before- and after-work rushes. There was no line, and of about 1,400 voters in the precinct, 542 had already cast votes. Kudos to poll workers for being so organized and friendly!

I stood in line at Central Park at 6:58 a.m. - by then, the line went from the lower level, up the stairs and wrapped around the upper floor - but it moved pretty quickly. I needed to register (since I'd just moved to Woodbury) and someone took me ahead of the line, registered me quickly, and handed me a ballot. I was able to use a private booth. The whole process took less than 25 minutes.

Good to hear Cheryl. Sounds like it was about the same around Woodbury today.

As a 20 year registered voterof Woodbury, I had to re-register today. For whatever reason, I was not on the registered list. My 18 year old, first time voting, daughter was registered though. Weird. She was on the registed list but when she went to get her ballot, her name was not on that list. Why would there be different lists? She ended up having to register . :) All at Footprints/Peace of Mind... apparently how many people would be in and out of the parking lot was not thought through very well. It's not meant for cars parked along the one way in & out route, but that was the case since the lot is so small. Everyone seemed to manage safely though. Valley Crossing was much, much better.

Thanks for the info Sunny. Did the election judges say it might have to do with redistricting?
