At the polling place in Venice, California:
Me: The flag poster on your door is backwards.
Poll Worker: No, it isn’t.
Me: The blue field is supposed to be at the upper left.
Poll Worker: No, the blue field is supposed to be facing east.
Me: It’s on a door. How will it still be facing the same way once the door is closed?
Poll Worker: I encourage you to vote by absentee ballot next year.
Wage reminds everyone to exercise your civic duty. Take your kids to the polls. Let the poll workers deal with them while you head off to the beach.
