Voters expect long lines, canvassing and a bit of small talk when they visit their local precincts Tuesday. A big, yellow barbecue truck? Probably not.
David Cornblatt's "Curley's Q" food truck was parked near the main entrance for voters at Gaithersburg High School, offering hot coffee and pastries to morning voters before a planned turn to its traditional hardwood smoked barbecue around lunch time.
"We were hoping there would be some long lines and see if we could get people some coffee," Cornblatt said. "But people are very edgy today."
Also known as "Chef Curley," Cornblatt said he was unsure how long he would remain at Gaithersburg High School.
Gaithersburg High School Chief Election Judge David Nelson said he and a few others might venture out over the course of the day to grab a bite to eat.
"Not everyone brought enough food for the day," Nelson said.
Cornblatt, of Germantown, said he would depart some time in the afternoon to cast his ballot. He said he plans to vote 'yes' on Questions 6 (Marriage Equality) and 7 (Gambling Expansion).
"To allow the casinos in, that will definitely stimulate the economy," Cornblatt said. "If two people want to be together — man and woman, woman and woman, man and man — that's their right."
