Election Day in Small-Town Texas

This is as close as you’ll get to a “news photo” from yours truly on election day in the United States.  As is often the case, I was trolling around tonight and wound up in Granger, Texas, population just over 1400.  Granger’s not far from our Taylor home, maybe ten minutes.   Each time I’ve been along Davilla Street, the main thoroughfare through downtown Granger, this building has been dark.  Tonight, however, the lights were on at the SPJST Hall, which turns out to be a polling place.  With my faithful tripod nearby, I snapped a few photos.   Granger is a throughly-Czech community.   The SPJST?  Here you go: Slovanska Podporujici Jednota Statu Texas, which translates to Slavonic Benevolent Order of the State of Texas.   There you go.  Admittedly, I look for excuses to document these towns.  Granger’s brick street is reason enough.   There you go.
