At the district electoral commission in Jagodno in Wrocław, the last voter cast his vote around 3 a.m. on Monday. After midnight, there was a queue of several hundred people in front of the polling station. The director of the National Electoral Office in Wrocław, Tomasz Szczepański, told PAP that everyone who came by 9 p.m. would vote. – This committee works very slowly – he added.
After 5 a.m. on Monday, Szczepański said that the votes were being counted in the Jadno commission.
Nearly 6 hours in line. Pizza, tea and water were delivered
As our reporter, Tomasz Kanik, reported on TVN24, pizza, hot tea and water were delivered to residents standing in line.
– It’s cold, but we can do it – said one of the women waiting to vote.
– I’m not the first, but I’m almost the last. There are a lot of people who help and everyone is happy – a man who had a thermos of tea, water and food told our reporter.
MP Tomasz Zimoch helped, among others. – Even the queues for meat, and I remember those times as a kid, were not like the queues today. What is determination, there is something that has changed in us today. If we pay attention, in many situations we would wave our hand and probably go home, and these people are standing there. I met a lady, she calculated carefully – she waited 5 hours and 52 minutes to vote. This is something special. October 15, 2023 will be a date that we will remember for a very long time, for many years – said Zimoch.
