Election Day comes to campus

Ginger Hervey, Editor-in-chief

The presidential campaign has been dominating the news for months, and Election Day has finally arrived, closer for some than for others as the school is a site for voting.

The auxiliary gym is closed off all day  as it is filled with electronic voting booths where citizens of Collin County can come to cast their vote for the presidential election.

“I have voted before, but this was my first time at Lovejoy High School,” voter Don Mcgrath said. “It was hard, this morning to find a place to vote.”

This voting difficulty came from a technical issue in the website of Collin County, a source many use to find voting locations.

“The Collin County website was down, and so we didn’t really know where to vote,” Mcgrath said. “So we checked the school, made a phone call, and found out that we could vote here at the high school.”

Most voters found that the voting experience at the high school was surprisingly quick and painless.

“This is the first time I’ve voted at Lovejoy High School,” voter Mike Burns said. “This was great. There weren’t any lines at all, I just walked in and out.”
