In some places in the US, there were too many voters and not enough places to vote.
In San Francisco they chose an unusual but politically appropriate site for the ballot. Among others, the Neptune Society Columbarium houses the ashes of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California.
“I kind of like it,” claimed one voter, “the occupants here are very, very quiet. They bother nobody, they’re not registered.”
Meanwhile, the only spin was from the machines at a launderette-turned-polling station in Chicago.
“You really don’t pay attention to what’s going on back there, although every year I keep saying I am going to bring my laundry and do it while I am here. But I never do.” said one voter.
And in sun-kissed California you could catch a wave and cast your vote at the same time.
“This is the best place in the world to vote.” said one woman, “I’m so excited to live here and vote right at the beach.”
