Confessions of a first-time poll worker

What it was like working Election Day this week, plus a new cinnamon roll company, a Hot Sauce Hootenanny and what former Austinite Toni Tipton-Martin is doing with her Julia Child Award.

I’d never considered working a poll station until a friend invited me to join her earlier this week. It was so much more than passing out stickers, and I loved every minute of it.

I worked the polls for the first time on Tuesday.

It was a relatively small election in terms of what was on the ballot, but all elections feel important when you’re the one setting up the voting stations.
