No school

Did you know RI kids have the day off from school today?

Apparently, election day is a school holiday every year. Lucky.

It's a public school holiday in NJ as well. But that's because nearly all polling locations are at schools.

When I was a kid, we had half days on voting days because the voting machines were set up in the cafeteria and we couldn't have lunch. But now days, amid all sorts of security concerns, outsiders are not allowed to be in the schools when it is in session. So, in order to keep the polls at the schools, the schools were forced to close for the day.
