Seems to be a lot of electioneering near the polling places. Not sure whether it is a state or a federal law, but around here polling is prohibited within 100 feet (30 m) of the polls. Looks like the participants outside are having more fun than around here, where the voters do not linger about the polling place but leave almost immediately after handing in their ballots. As an inspector (head precinct pollworker) for several elections, including the infamous "hanging chad" Bush-Gore election, I've had some experience at this. That said, the precincts around here are small and I have never actually had to take a car to the polling place; they were almost always within walking distance.

Depends who you talk to, but safe to say that just over half the population are ecstatic, and just under half aren't …

I think it's fair to say that Australia is a very different social environment to the USA. There was a genuine air of goodwill among volunteers and public in general, just as it should be in a representative democracy.

I'm envious. Political climate in this country is pretty ugly.

So we see on screens, Greg. I can only hope we don't go down the same path.
