In Which Primary Election Day Holds Some Surprises

I bought a house a year ago or so,
And thus changed my address, but little did
I realize that this day I would go
Both far and wide to exercise, as bid,
My franchise. Last time 'round 'twas just a block
From where I lived to where I cast my vote.
My new pad's just a quarter-mile to walk
From those old digs, but now (I failed to note
Before today), I'm in a district new
To me, and now the locale of my poll
Is many miles away. The air's still blue
From my much-thwarted process there -- how droll:
Construction everywhere meant that it took
Almost the whole alloted hour. Fists shook!.
