Crisfield Election

"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." ~ John Quincy Adams

I have been running a little behind on my posts. For those who enjoy political photos, here are some from the mayoral and council election. Congratulations to all the incumbents, each of who retained their positions.

No matter what side of the fence you are on, voting is a privilege. Thank you to everyone who voted in the election.

Nothing like a small town election. Sure beats those big-city lines.

Across the road from the election hall, candidates await the outcome.

Even the young people pitched in.

Hungry volunteers found time for a little lunch.

And then was a recount...

And the winners are...
Mayor P. J. Purnell, left, and Councilman Kim Lawson. Not present were Councilman Barry Dize and Councilman Raymond Anderson.

And after all was said and done (and counted), I had to take a creative shot.

Congratulations to the winners. No matter where you live, register to vote. Votes are what makes the world go 'round! Well, some people say it is love, so vote for the candidate you love the most, and kill two birds with one stone.

Your photo essay truly "tells" a story of small town elections. Ojne photo I can suggest would have been voters at the local fire station. You are so right about small town life being great.
