10 minutes after midnight, TVN24 reporter Maja Wójcikowska talked to the last two people who managed to vote at a polling station in Warsaw’s Wola district.
“We voted for democracy”
– It was cold outside. Fortunately, my friend brought me a winter jacket, so I somehow managed to survive it, said Konrad, who stood outside for three hours.
Michał also spent so much time outside, but as he said, volunteers came and brought him warm tea. – There was pizza. Also very great when it comes to such support from society. We waited three hours, but it was worth it. At least we voted, we voted for democracy, he said.
As they said, they had never encountered such long queues to vote. – It’s the first time I’ve experienced something like this. Usually it was about going out and casting a vote, a family outing – said Michał.
“The most important elections since 1989”
– This is not the first vote for me either. I didn’t expect such a large turnout at all. I think it was a great surprise for everyone that we had to wait so long to vote, said Konrad. – These are probably the most important elections since 1989. I think a new page of history is being written, he said.
According to them, the atmosphere “was nice”, there was some integration outside and inside.
