On the CNN website, it shows an election booth covered by a curtain. You can see the legs of 2 people in the 1 booth: looks like a man & a woman.

My question is: can a couple vote together rather than separately? If so, why would you do that?

The person is probably some kind of helper for handicapped persons and/or an interpreter of some kind.

The stance of the person on the left as well as the attire suggests someone in their mid to late 70s or 80s. The person on the right may be their nurse.

I would have to ask them to give a better answer.

Ok, helper of some sort makes sense. Thanks. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Also there is a huge turn out of first time voters. Some people need help in figuring out the process.

I thought the process was almost too easy to be honest, and it was my first time voting.

It isn't that difficult and at first I wondered why anyone would need help. I think it's simply due to the fact that this is a huge election. The people who have never cared to vote before ( all ages ) prob. want to be sure they dot all the i's and cross all the t's so to speak.

Yep, I voted tonight and the girl in front of me couldn't figure it out! We have new ones that are electronic, which is cool to me, but maybe confusing to some people. :rolleyes:

I don't think that a couple could vote together, but they can vote for the same people.
