Election Scene

Scene: Lutheran church basement in Logan Square, 35th Ward.

Me: Hi, I'm here to vote.

Election judge (EJ): What street do you live on?

Me: Fairfield.

EJ: (Incredulous, gasping): Fairfield!?! What the fuck are you doing here?

Me: This is where I've voted for the last 7 years.

EJ: (checks thick paper voter roll book, cursorily). You vote at (the Catholic church down the street). If you don't know where that is, you're fucking stupid and have no right to vote.

Me: Thank you.
