Polling Place Provender

A fair number of voting places have nice volunteers offering cookies and coffee, or local organizations sponsoring bake sales to raise money. Our local middle school, JT Moore Middle, for one, is hoping voters will stop by the tables for a warm sausage biscuit ($1) and maybe take home a whole Chocolate Chip Pie ($10).

But there's a wrinkle in the dough: Of the 600 registered voters in the precinct, 400 have already voted. Early voting is great for the republic, but it might be a drawback for bar-cookie sales.

So this afternoon, if you have a hankering for a blondie, a pumpkin bar or a whole chocolate bundt cake, look for the "bake sale" signs at polling places. The money goes for a great cause, and you'll surely find a super deal.

As always, report to Bites on any polling-place eats you find.
