A check of four polling places in Fox Chase revealed a snapshot of election day. Between 7 am and 9:30 am I visited four polling places, The American Legion Hall, Fox Chase Library, Memorial Presbyterian Church of Fox Chase and Ryerss Museum and Library. Election officials reported in the area of 100 voters had cast ballots with lines early in the morning. Election officials said voting is steady since the initial opening of the polls and that they expect heavy lines between 4 pm and 8 pm Frigid temperatures haven’t kept poll workers for candidates from idling outside of voting places nor voters from casting their vote . Due to the predictions of long lines it is advisable if you can to get out and vote early to avoid the bitter cold projected for this evening.
