One Last Vote

So it wasn’t a swing vote, but this is still pretty cool:

[Mary] Nelson lives in Adak. The town had its own polling station for the first time this year, but the island is so far west, it’s in a different time zone from the rest of Alaska. That pretty much guaranteed that the results of the Presidential election would be a foregone conclusion by the time the polls closed. Nelson says she knew her vote wouldn’t swing the national race, but she wanted to do her part anyways.
