Chesterbrook Precinct: The stragglers
Less than five minutes before the polls closed, Brian Zimmer screeched up to the entrance of the Chesterbrook precinct on his bicycle. The 63-year-old had biked from his office at 11th St. and Pennsylvania Avenue - where he's the president of a think tank - all the way to the heart of McLean.
"I've never made it this fast," he said, taking off his helmet as he collected his ballot.
Then, just after a poll worker announced one minute remained before the polls closed, Dave Burg rushed in with his two-year-old daughter Caroline. A consultant who had spent the day in Miami, he didn't land at Reagan National Airport until 5:30 p.m.
"I thought I could squeeze in just before seven," said Burg, 40. "And it worked."
Neither would say which gubernatorial candidate he voted for.
