CLAREMORE, Okla. — Talk about first class service. Rogers County voters who couldn’t stand in the long lines pushed a button and poll workers came to help them vote from their car and meet Gerry Mooney.

He’s dressed to the nines, ready to greet voters.

“I don’t get to wear my tux very often in Claremore,” Mooney said. “So, I thought I’d break it out.”

With all eyes on the 2020 election, Mooney said he knew people would be out to vote and it’s a special occasion.

Just special enough to pull his tuxedo from the closet.

“A couple of people have said ‘Ahhh ZZ Top, sharp dressed man,’ others have said ‘Oh I see you’re in a tux,’ and I just said yeah my jeans are in the wash, so I just threw this on,” Mooney said.

Mooney wanted to give people something to smile about. He opened door for voters as they came in and out.

Some voters could vote from their car.

“I think it’s wonderful, for people who can’t stand. Cause it’s going to take a while in that line,” Mooney said.
