Please post your election news/reports here!!
It's 4:00 a.m. in Alabama, and I'm heading to a rural county as the GOP ballot security attorney.
It doesn't get more American than this!!
GOD SPEED, GOP!!
I told them to be sure and register when they were old enoough, and that I hoped their parents voted on Tuesday.
I am off to work as a poll machine operator. Our precenct is pretty mych a swing precenct. As it goes so goes the state, usually. The Rats will carry West Tennessee and the Repubs will carry East Tennessee. It is Middle Tennessee which determines who will carry the state and that is where I am. I will post the results of our precenct as soon as I get home. Probably around 8:00 PM. The good news is that it is raining steady here and is suppose to keep it up all day. GOTV. Our lives depend on it.
what a laxative this thread will be
Republicans vote today, Democrats tomorrow.
From Singapore, our prayers are with you in the US, that you may all vote today and assist in the GOTV!
Believe me, the world needs a GOP Win!!!!!
From the UK - good luck and God speed!
The stakes today are as high as they have ever been. The Democrats have thrown up a miasma of lies and deceit for so long that it's hard to imagine a world untainted by their misery and their hateful lust for power. But I am positive that the common decency of the American citizen will prevail.
I'm making a tagline out of that. Thanks Ivan.
Just got back. I was 4th in line....ID, verification form filled out.....on to the Diebold. Voted straight GOP, and even wrote myself in for one of the judge seats, as I didn't like the incumbant. There were probably 30 people there when the polls opened. I walked away with a good, hopeful sense about the outcome. It's now going to be a loooooooooong day.
I voted in Northern Virginia at 6:04 AM. I was about number 30!
CNN just announced that the Dems have won all 435 House seats.
Jacksonville, Alabama. Cool, wet, rain, wind. PERFECT weather. My wife and I were first in line, got our ballots and instead of just marking the straight R ticket, we actually voted individually for each R candidate for the fun of voting for each and every R on the ballot. There were a couple of dim onlys in a couple of places. They got skipped. Otherwise, straight R ticket. My governor, Bob Riley led quickly 2-0 in his race to smash the socialist-liberal slug Lucy Baxley. A complete and utter liberal slime ball. ON TO VICTORY!!!
Quick, someone post the election results from 2006!
Time travel rules!
New voting machines down in our precinct, a very conservative district of Central Ohio. My husband said they were asking people to come back later.
My 12 year old daughter is working the polls handing out pamphlets to voters. She's wearing GOP earings and red, white & blue outfit. She's a great kid!
Bless your child. Train her right. Train her early. Keep her away from the dark side!
Fairly long line for these rural parts (about a 10-15 minute wait).
When I asked a longtime poll worker "How's the turnout?" she said "We can barely keep up" (she's an elderly lady and a solid Republican - and she's been working the polls for decades). This is good, because we're in a very Republican RED area.
Here's an interesting little thing I overheard:
As I was signing in, a poll worker came over from the computer voting area and said to the poll worker with the book "We have another runaway voter - put a slash by her name". I'm guessing that this means the voter started her ballot on the computer and walked out of the polling place, but didn't press the "vote" button that actually casts the ballot. And, obviously, from the comment, she was at least the second voter to do so. Interesting phenomenon. Wonder how common this is?
