The polls are open.
At sixteen different stations around The Park, the ballots are neatly stacked and election officials stand at the ready to assist voters as they file in.
“The race is on. All that’s left is for Park Animals to tick whichever box belongs to the candidate they think will perform the duties of POPS best,” said an exhausted-looking Gerritt Wezel this morning.
If voter turnout is as high as it has been over the past few years, the Park Election Office head estimates it will take at least three days to count the votes and determine which of the 207 candidates will be 2016’s Park Official Prognosticator of Spring.
“However long it takes, though, you’ll know almost as soon as we know,” Wezel says.
