Last week I went to the Coral Gables Library to take advantage of early voting. The parking lot was full, and I had to wait for someone to leave before getting a space. I thought it was wonderful that there were so many voters.
But, no, there was only one person voting ahead of me and very few people in the library. The parking lot was full because of all of the people campaigning for candidates outside. On my way inside, they bombarded me with handouts and were aggressive in their manner. It was annoying.
Isn’t there an ordinance that keeps them a certain distance from the entrance? They actually are a deterrent and could keep voters away who are not patient enough to wait for a parking space and who don’t want to be accosted on their way to the polls.
