Early Voting Starts off with a Bang

November 8, 2012 Local, News

Not only did exceedingly long lines plague voters attempting to cast their ballot at the Winter Park Library on Saturday, Nov. 3, but the presence of two suspicious packages halted the entire effort for the better part of four hours.

Aside from the obvious impact this had on the voters, anyone wishing to travel along Fairbanks Avenue that afternoon was unable to pass through the section of road reaching from the library to the front entrance of campus.

As various news reporters flooded the library parking lot, Winter Park police detonated both packages resulting in nothing but a startling bang that rang through campus, putting an unsettling dent in the activities of Family Weekend.

The bomb threat turned out to be nothing more than an inconvenient misnomer halting traffic and perpetuating Florida’s now historic tradition of long lines at polls.
