You do the math: The Georgia political divide

Here’s a riddle: Christina lives 12 miles from her designated polling place, and Maria lives 5. Christina must leave work at 5:30 to get home by 6:00. Maria must pick her kids up at 2:30 so she can bring them to her mother’s house by 3:00. Christina lives next to the highway and can drive up to 65 miles per hour; Maria can drive up to 25 miles per hours on the local roads. If both women leave at 6:25 and the polls close at 7:00, who will get to vote on Election Day?

Answer: They both can make it in time, but neither woman is registered to vote.
