Last 50 yards

Daily Item

---- — Why do I have to be harassed just to pull the lever for a candidate for office? Like the merchants at a farmer's market, the surrogates for each campaign line the walkway into the voting area pedaling their product with a passion that exceeds even the most aggressive telemarketer.

You rush to get within 50 yards of the voting place just to be left alone.

Can I please not be harassed as I go to execute my civil responsibility?
