For voters like David Weaver, getting out to the polls today is no problem.
"It's first thing in the morning and I only live a block away," Weaver, 63, said after casting his ballot at the Conrad Harrison Youth Center in El Centro.
Weaver may have been the exception.
As of 7:30 a.m., the inspector at the youth center, Eddie Galindo, said Weaver was only the sixth person to vote in the half-hour the precinct had been open.
"It's a little slow," Galindo, who has been doing precinct work for six years, said.
People are usually waiting and ready to come in right at 7 a.m., Galindo said.
"They've just been coming in one at a time," he said of the trickle of voters so far this morning.
Because this is a small election, Galindo said, it isn't surprising that there aren't throngs of eager voters breaking down the door.
