Waiting in line to make history

voting lines at Hyattsville Middle School

Taken in the "cafetorium" of Hyattsville Middle School, Tuesday 4 November 2008. It was an historic day, no matter how you voted. I think the array of flags hanging from the ceiling and the makeup of the crowd are fitting; they represent the international significance of the election and the broad swath of the population participating in this record turnout.

(Almost immediately after taking this picture I discovered that cameras were not permitted in the polling place.)
