Default The voting poles just now closed here in little Bimshire.

Today, Wednesday, January 19th, 2022 Barbados held its first Election since becoming a Republic.

As someone "on the ground", the voting process was managed very professionally by those who were processing the Voters. Only one Voter was allowed into the voting space at one time -- exactly as it should have been.

The experience while queuing up was also somewhat calming.

Complete strangers being very comfortable being in each other's "spaces".

Neighbors greeting each other (with appropriate distancing, of course) realizing "Hey! You invest the time to vote as well. Cool!

Total time invested: 20 minutes.

Total potential upside: Unknown, but arguably greater than zero.

Now we wait for the numbers to come back... Should be by tomorrow (Thursday) morning.
