OK. You've gone out and voted, like a good citizen. Tell us about it.
How was turnout? Were there any problems at your polling place? Who do you think will win your local races?
Voted you all should too.
Rural area here in Virginia. Mostly Republican. EXTREMELY high turn out. I’ve voted here my entire life and it’s never been close to this.
Voted at about 7:15am. 5th in line of about 25. Rurual area. Sure enough one of their check into computers froze up one voter in. 80 year old women manning the polling place.
In Indiana, a highly Conservative area of the state, there was a bigger line at 6:30am unlike it was in ‘04.
Take some pics if you can. They all might disappear from the internet in January. I’m going to two polling places today accompanying females, not voting twice. Hopefully you wont see my mug shot on a later thread here... :)
I voted a couple of weeks ago via absentee.
I don’t know why everyone doesn’t do that.
Watching Fox, they just talked about a couple of women voters that said they were voting for Obama because he would keep them in their houses, provide “free” healthcare and buy them gas...
Stupid, stupid people...
Turn out is very high here in central Indiana...
I just saw at the polling place... a guy voting while wearing an Obama baseball cap ...
Is this a liberal part of the state? Or conservative mostly?
Here is my report:
I arrived at my local polling place in Cranford, New Jersey at 5:55 AM, as is my custom. The parking lot was already full, and some cars were leaving as I pulled in.
The doors were already open, which was odd. When I went in, it was two deep at my precinct, which is very unusual for that early in the morning. I had to wait about five minutes to vote.
Voted straight Republican.
McCain/Palin for President
Dick Zimmer for Senate
Leonard Lance for NJ-7 House - Looks good to fill Mike Ferguson’s (R-NJ) vacated seat
Sacrificial ‘Pubbie trio for Union County Freeholder (they will lose)
Drew and Dugan for Cranford Town Council (they will win)
The ballot questions were impenetrable, as usual. I voted to require voter approval for all bond issues, because I don’t trust the NJ Legislature (Duh!), and require state approval of municipal judges, because I trust the local machine politicians even less (Duh!, again).
A quick perusal of the parking lot showed 6 McCain/Palin bumper stickers, including mine, and one Barack Obama sticker, with the other 20 cars or so having no stickers.
I live in a pretty McCain-friendly precinct, so I think the big turnout is good news.
I voted, and was first at my precinct, which is a rural North Central Illinois. There were several others who showed up right after me. I think this location will become more busy late morning, and early evening. All seemed good. Although being the first, they weren’t as awake or organized a could have expected.
If that is indicative of even 10% of the nation’s voters America is in deep trouble, regardless of who wins today.
Got to the polls at 6:15...the line was 20 times longer than usual. I am glad to see heavy turnouts in conservative areas, because if my location is any indication, I’m more worried about Frank Wolf here in NVA. The liberal candidate is a loon.
BTW, if we have truly reached the point in this country where the majority of voters are going to vote for whomever will give them the most “free” stuff we are over as a country. That is a critical mass in an uncontrolled reaction that will consume us.
Rural NC. High turnout. Usually walk in, get ballot, and go. Not today, I had to wait 20 minutes. From the looks of the crowd I think McCain should carry my precinct.
Many are being fooled with that thought.
Oregon - Vote by Mail - Enough said. (goes off into corner to cry)
Plenty of out-of-state plates at the polling place here in my swing-state. Plus, umm, how shall I phrase this? Quite a different demographic than I normally see in the neighborhood. A very Obama-supporting demographic.
My wife and I will be voting here in Rochelle in a few hours. She has a conference call to handle first. I'll report back later...
