Parking may be an issue at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center as cars full of residents continue to flow into the lot as voters try to get into the building to vote.
“Allow plenty of time,” is the advice Hartland voter Kim Griffin gives to any on their way to the polls.
Griffin, who was waiting in line to vote in precinct 2, said she didn’t mind the wait saying that seeing so many people voting was a good thing.
Behind her in line was Michelle Rosinski waiting with her two young children.
“I thought I’d miss the work crowd and this would be quiet,” Rosinski said. “They (kids) want us to move to precinct 5.”
Precinct 5 is currently one of the lines that has little to no wait, while a few of the other voting lines are still longer. Some voters say they are moving steadily, however, with approximately a half hour wait.
Hartland High School senior Morgan Lovay who is volunteering at the polls today to become more “involved” with the process, gives tips to residents who are still waiting to come in including using the father west side entrance across from the tennis courts.
“I feel like more people should come in this (second west side) entrance because they’re all clogged up over there (first entrance),” she said. “No one knows they can come in here.”
Other tips include remembering to check in at the table before getting into the voting line and to try and beat the 6 p.m. rush, if possible, at the polls.
“We’re going to get a lot today, I know it,” Lovay said.
Tuesday, 8:30 a.m.
Hartland voters came out in force Tuesday morning as many residents tried to get their civic duty done early today.
"I have too busy of a day," said Hartland voter Elaine Gariel who was able to cast her vote before 8 a.m. "If I didn't do it now, I wasn't going to get it done."
Voters were lined up around the building this morning before the polls had even opened, according to Hartland Township clerk Larry Hopkins, and the steady stream of voters lasted throughout the first hours the polls were open.
Hartland residents Aaron and Janee Skomial were voters 519 and 520 this morning in precinct 2 and the couple said they waited for approximately an hour and half this morning to vote.
With their voting line stretched out the door and down the long hallway, Janee Skomial admitted they were surprised by the heavy morning turn out.
“Normally when we come here we’re in and out in 15 -20 minutes,” Janee Skomial said. “We’ve never waited like this.”
Gabriel, who was voter number 83 in precinct 5, says luckily her line moved quickly and she was done in 15 minutes.
“When we walked in the door we thought, oh jeez, but then we found out we had to come over here,” Gabriel said. “Don’t go to precinct 2."
For some voters, however, the longer than usual wait was a good sign.
"This is a good thing," Hartland voter Jennifer Whitbeck said. "It's how it should be."
