Early voting started in Illinois Monday, and with it, out came the motor voter trolley.
"They pull right up, more or less in front of your door, and you walk right out, and get right in there and vote, and get it over with," said Elmo Quillen, who voted today on the trolley.
The trolley goes all around Rock Island County, to three sites a day, mostly, to senior communities and apartments.
"It's to complexes where there's people that are seniors, people that don't normally have transportation to the facility, to the voting precincts," said Marion Theman, an election judge.
On Monday, more than 100 people came aboard the trolley, which is handicapped accessible, to cast their ballots.
"For the seniors that are closed in, it's one of the best things that has ever happened to them," said Dixie Carter, who voted today on the trolley.
The trolley's not just convenient, but efficient too.
The three election judges that man the voting booth on wheels run a tight ship.
"Not long at all, it was maybe, less than five minutes," said Randy Booker, who voted today on the trolley.
For some folks voting in the trolley, it's a relief to be able to exercise their constitutional right as soon as possible.
"Just to get it over with and I don't have to worry about it!" said Dixie Carter.
