INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A local nurse went above and beyond while she was volunteering at the polls on Election Day. IU Health Methodist Hospital nurse Colby Snyder was working at the Lucas Oil Stadium polling location Tuesday when she stepped in to save a voter’s life.
Snyder said she decided to volunteer at the polls for the first time this year. She thought she would be helping to keep the lines moving and save voters time but not their lives — but that’s exactly what happened.
During Snyder’s volunteering shift, a woman waiting to vote passed out and became unresponsive. Snyder used an AED (automated external defibrillator) and worked on the woman while they waited for EMS to arrive.
Snyder said she’s thankful for her training.
“It’s cool that you’re able to do something. When we are doing compressions and stuff it’s awesome you can literally save someone’s life with your hands,” said Snyder.
Snyder is encouraging everyone to learn CPR because you never know when you might need it. Representatives with IU Methodist Hospital said the woman is in critical condition. Snyder said she plans to visit her soon.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Hundreds of people waited in line to vote early downtown for as long as three hours.
Early voting ended on Nov. 2. Election officials closed the line at noon. If you were in line before the line closed, you were still allowed to vote.
If not, they told you to come back on Election Day. Dustin Vice was one of the last two people to make it in line before it closed. He said he was glad he made it on time.
“We could have tried to vote again tomorrow, but this made me feel good that I don’t have to worry about it and I’m done and my vote went in,” said Vice.
Gregory Tindall was able to avoid the line because of an injury. He said he felt he had a responsibility to his community to vote this year.
“The way we’re being treated in America and the way things are going in America are not good for our people. So I made sure I came out and cast my vote,” said Tindall.
The polls will be open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Election officials are reminding people to bring a valid ID with them.
