A day at the polls for volunteers as Measure G fails

 

Precinct workers (from left) Farah Naz Baqar, Janet Franchi and Sean Sowell serve as volunteers at the Pleasanton Middle School Precinct No. 52370 Tuesday as voters came one or two at a time to cast their ballots on Measure G, the Pleasanton parcel tax proposal.

Precinct Judge Josephine Sandoval was away at lunch when this photo was taken.

Even with just four polling places available city-wide, turnout was light with many voters having mailed in their ballots to the county registrar's office.

By 10:43 p.m., nearly three hours after all precincts, including this one, had closed, it was over with Measure G garnering just over 61 percent of the votes cast, short of the 66-2/3rd percent needed to pass.

At the PMS gymnasium starting at 6 a.m. to prepare their polling place to open at 7 a.m. and then well after the poll's closing at 8 p.m. last night, these three packed up and went home after volunteering 13 hours of service in the election.
