If you are Sue Myrick, this is about the highlight of the election season: Voting early at the library. That’s because barring a catastrophe, she will easily get reelected to represent the 9th District for Congress. Myrick is so confident in her reelection that she’s hardly spent a penny on advertising. Her opponent, Jeff Doctor of Charlotte, seems like a capable candidate. But the suburbs and Gastonia are Myrick country and until she decides to retire, it’s safe to say she will keep getting reelected. Photographer Ed McDonald grabbed these shots of Myrick as she was coming out of the library after voting.
