Grab a granizado after voting

Posted on: November 4, 2008

vote-graphic1Voting’s come along way in la ciudad que progresa. When the city was incorporated in 1925 there was one precint and 532 registered voters. Now 83 years later there are nearly 80,000 voters and countless precincts.
Our voting experience went smoothly first thing this morning (literally), by 6:30 a.m. voters were lining up at Milander Auditorium, the sleepy crowd nonetheless was cheerful and in good humor.
After a charming chat with a couple who could remember the day when Hialeah didn’t go further than West 4th Ave (57 Ave) we cast our votes and wished for the best. As we were leaving we couldn’t help but note campaigners sharing cafecito and the granizado cart pulling up – ah, elections Hialeah style.

BLACK PANTHERS SUPPRESS MCCAIN VOTERS IN PHILLY POLLING PLACE

POLICE HAVE REMOVED A MAN IN BLACK PANTHER GARB WEILDING A BILLY CLUB AT A PHILLY POLLING PLACE. TWO MEN HAVE BEEN REPORTED BY A U.S. ARMY VETERAN TO POLICE AS THEY BLOCKED THE ENTRANCE TO THE POLLING PLACE. THEY CLOSED RANKS ON THE WHITE VETERAN AS HE ATTEMPTED TO ENTER THE POLLING PLACE. UPON LEAVING ONE OF THEM, WHILE TAPPING THE BILLY CLUB IN HIS HAND, TOLD THE VETERAN THAT HE DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE THE POLLING STATION BECAUSE OBAMA HAD ALREADY WON THE ELECTION. HE ALSO STATED THAT “WE ARE SICK OF WHITE SUPREMECY.” POLICE REMOVED THE MAN FROM THE POLLING STATION, HOWEVER THE OTHER BLACK PANTHER WAS ALLOWED TO REMAIN THERE.
