Judy Arioli drove past her voting precinct four times Tuesday before deciding to park her car and get out.

Arioli votes at the main branch of the Lancaster County Library in downtown Lancaster. Each time she drove past the library, the lines were wrapped around the back of the building.

When she returned for a fifth time at 12:45 p.m., the crowd was much smaller. Despite the rain, Arioli chose to get in line and wait.

She said the election was too important to miss.

I said Ill go ahead and do it (get in line), Arioli said. I always vote.
