What happens if they hold an election and nobody votes?
This occurred to me Tuesday afternoon as I visited Precinct 143, in the Chinese Community Church at Fifth and I St. NW. Poll workers outnumbered voters 6-1. The polls had been open for nine hours. The electronic machines showed 75 had cast ballots.
"Hopefully," said one poll worker, "we'll get a rush after work. We're ready to roll!"
