Industrious Girl Scouts Sell Cookies at Edgemere Polls

Girl Scout Senior Troop 1011 sold the organization's iconic cookies outside of Chesapeake Terrace Elementary School on Election Day.

Hoping to capitalize on high voter turnout, local Girl Scouts set up shop outside the polls at Chesapeake Terrace Elementary School on Tuesday, hoping to sell a few boxes of their famous cookies.

Early Tuesday afternoon, Becky Luke, leader of Girl Scouts Senior Troop 1011 was joined by Girl Scout Kiersten Nuehlberger as she staffed a table stacked with boxes of the iconic treat.

While election judges inside were pleased with voter turnout, which they described as "steady" throughout the morning, Luke said cookie sales were "slow so far."

The hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. are traditionally the slowest at the polls, according to election officials, and most polling places were gearing up for large after-work crowds.

So were the Girl Scouts.

"We're hoping things will pick up later," Luke said. "A lot of people like Girl Scout cookies."

Really? Where were they? They weren't there when I voted early and I drove by later just to see if they were there and I didn't see them.
