Election Day Voter Support Plan

Here's how things will go down:

  • Preparing coffee and hot water will happen all day (beginning around 9:30) at Boxcar Donuts 127 Railroad Street (Public Market).
  • Most other items are assembled at Temple Brith Kodesh, 2131 Elmwood Ave. They are in the kitchen, which is Door H. The door will be kept locked, so you will need to call Terri Richardson at the Temple (244-7060) to request someone to open the door for dropoff or pickup of stuff

Where are we going?

At 12:00pm a team of five drivers will begin assigned routes to find polling places in the city which have visibly long lines. They will report in by 12:30, and that's when we'll know what sites we'll be going to. Our current plan is to cover 5 sites.

Site teams will meet at the kitchen at Temple Brith Kodesh at around 12:45 to learn their destinations and possibly load some starter packs into their cars. That will include teabags, hot chocolate, sugar and creamer, stirring sticks and lots of snacks. Each team will also have a table and 20 folding chairs. And two large insulated beverage containers, one of coffee and one of hot water.

We will have two pickup trucks working with us, so we will choose an order to roll out the sites, since we can't dispatch all simultaneously with only one or two vehicles. Hopefully all materials will be in place between 1 and 2.

What happens at the end of the night?

We've scheduled volunteers to go till the polls close at 9. If some of our polling sites don't have lines between 7 and 9pm, we will shut those sites down early. If, at 9pm, some sites still have lines, we will stay in place until everyone has what they need and we're sure they've had a chance to vote.

When the evening is over, we'll transport tables, chairs and beverage containers to Boxcar Donuts at 127 Railroad Street. They'll be stored overnight and returned to their kindly lenders on Wednesday.

Update at 6pm. No lines among the 50 polling sites we checked. We are calling this off. We are so grateful to all the volunteers and all the donors who made this possible, but there were no significant lines today. Good job, Board of Elections!
