Voters dribble in to vote in person


George and Nancy Miller walked up to their Doylestown Borough polling place Tuesday afternoon to cast their ballots in person.

“There’s no reason not to,” said Nancy. “You know for a fact you have a paper trail.”

It was Maryna Chuma’s first time voting. The 18-year-old New Hope student mailed-in her ballot but came to Doylestown to deliver it in time. While in town, she and her mother, Meka Chuma, stopped by the Doylestown Fire House so Maryna could get an “I Voted” sticker.

“I wanted to show it to my AP government teacher who taught me that voting was a civic duty,” said Maryna.

Inside the polling station, a lone voter was filling in his ballot that would then be scanned by the county’s new election machines.

“It’s been very light,” said Nancy Adam, a Democratic committeewoman, of turnout. By about 2 p.m., approximately 60 voters had cast ballots at the firehouse on Shewell Avenue.
