Well, DU is running this article and pitching a fit over it.

N.H. Democratic Party loses phone service at offices
http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20101101-NEWS-101109975

and they’ve got a thread on the stock market watch, which I hadn’t thought of but might prove interesting.

WE NEED VOTING STANDARDS ACROSS THE BOARD.

ID REQUIREMENTS #1 ISSUE TO SETTLE!!

DRIVER’S LICENSE OR ID CARD FROM THE DMV. Yes, I know they can be forged, but enough with this “show up with your electric bill and you can vote” crap. Too easy for fraud that way!

number 57 this morning in Forbes territory in Virginia. Decent stream coming in. poll workers seemed cranky, but maybe because it was so early.

I just voted!! I voted a straight Republican ticket. Unfortunately, there was no one running against my state Rep. who was the genius behind the 1% sales tax increase. I had to write someone in against him. I voted against retaining every judge except 1. The KS Supreme Court is the primary reason the KS budget is such a mess. They’ve colluded with the Rat/Rino legislature to massively increase education funding.

My husband said the same thing...normally, you could just give your name, but today he had to have either his license or voting card (we couldn’t find his)—he said they were VERY careful checking his license information! I take this as a good sign!

Voted this morning in Texas and the line was starting to grow and had about a 5 minute wait. Usually I’ve always been able to walk right in with no line. Took me long enough to blacken the mark for straight Republican and left. Then came home to get my duaghter out of bed to go vote.

We are participating in an historical event, America’s future will be determined by the outcome today...I’ve always wondered how John Adams and the Founding Fathers felt, taking the risks they took to fight for this country’s beginning—and the revolution that followed...we are participating in the Second American Revolution. *awed*

"No word on how this bin will be separated from those full of already-counted ballots"

Similar to the "Frankenmethod", where trunkloads of ballots are "found" after the count shows the Democrat is losing the election.

I’m a MN District 6 guy also — Voting seemed light at my polling station, I was #207 about 2.5 hrs after it opened. GOP all the way (but more importantly, conservative GOP’ers).

Minnesota's voting system utilizes pieces of paper where the voter completes an arrow next to the name of their selected candidates with a black marker. The paper is fed through a scanner.

In VA, we have the choice of that system or touch-screen. In the precinct where I vote, we've never had that kind of problem. The fact that suddenly... BEFORE the first vote is cast.... the scanner in MN went down. There needs to be a watcher on site to ensure no funny sh*t happens with those ballots.

I was #269 at our polling place here in south Jersey. Seems like pretty heavy turn-out. No senate seat in play. Only our house race and local committee.

Hoping Rob Andrews gets to throw a retirement party tonight.

Voted for Cantor here in Midlothian (suburban Richmond, VA) at 9:30. No huge crowd, but parking lot was full and steady foot traffic. They cross-referenced my voter registration card and asked me to repeat my address...was voter number 570 in this conservative precinct. A few weeks ago I sent Morgan Griffith, running against Boucher, a check for $35...figured he needed it more than Cantor.

Same here in North Central Ohio.

I always try to go in about an hour after polls open and am usually 15 - 25th in my predominantly Republican precinct. This morning, I was 87th. Must have been a line waiting at 6:30 when they opened.

There was a Tea Party guy about 150’ from the door handing out a Tea Party candidate endorsement cards. Most of the people took one and were nice to him. I should have offered to go get him a cup of coffee, since his list was the same as mine.

Why is it that libs just instinctively want to shut down any opposing free speech?

Because they know that they have not/will not win the argument. Therefore, the next best thing is to shut down the argument.

“Cast my vote to retire Moran - for probably the 10th time.”

I’ve also been voting against Jim Moran for years. This year I’m out of VA due to family commitments; however, I did vote absentee. I never miss an opportunity to vote against Moran.

I may never be counted and end up in the trash, just as you fear. It is my understanding that absentee ballots are not counted in most states if the winning candidate receives more votes than total number of absentee ballots.

That never happens in my voting district here in Grand Rapids.

I suppose we just dont have a history of voting fraud. Our elections tend to go as the general consensus assumes it will.

But I always do take ID. Really do wish they would check them.

Morning All....thank you SEMom for doing this thread.

A quick report, but first, heh, an anecdote. Until today, I’m not making this up, I had no idea what GOTV meant. I thought it was some kind of special station on the cable channel that...I dunno....was hip and cool, for folks on the GO. Not that I’m proud of this but for a smile....

My observation is that I vote a very small polling place and normally around ten in the am is nobody there. Today...it was packed. Dunno know what this means but tis my report.

For those from Merryland and as an insight into how NON-political junkees vote, talked to 33 year old daughter in Baltimore. She tells me NO to Kratovil...he’s history, never shoulda been there to begin with. She voted, yes she did, FOR Mulkulski....sheesh, that little lesbian. Daughter had problem with IRS last year and Mikulski made it right for her. Well hell, I guess if a congress critter does a good job for you they deserve your vote. Daughter did tell me that yeah, she knows Mikulski is a Democrat (and daughter knows what I think of them) but she was grateful for the service Babs gave her.

Daughter said she voted AGAINST Sarbanes....she didn’t know the guy, knew he was Republican, HATES Sarbanes.

Daughter voted AGAINST slots at the Arundel Mills Mall cause she says that there’s also plans to have strip clubs there and nobody’s telling about this. Daughter lives close to this Mall and this is a Merryland hot item thing this year.
