Morning Rains Do Not Keep Largo Voters, Campaign Workers Away

Largo goes to the polls on Election Day 2012.

Want a bigger umbrella? A cup of coffee? 

Those are some of the offers campaign worker Diane Fellows, of Largo, heard as she sat under an umbrella at the edge of a walkway at Christ the King Lutheran Church on Oakhurst with campaign signs around her. The church was the polling place for precincts 312 and 321 on Nov. 6.

Being visible outside the polling place is the last "hurrah" before people vote, said Fellows, who campaigned for President Barack Obama.

"I've said, 'hello' to a lot of people," Fellows said shortly after 8 a.m. 

Plus, she fielded questions about things such as the church's precinct number. And yes, the church has a bathroom.

Voter Cindy Triffon emerged with a bright rainbow umbrella.

"That's why I live in America. I like to vote in person on Election Day," she said.

Up the road at  the parking lot was also busy. A couple voters said the process went smooth as they ducked into their dry, warm cars.
