I performed an exit poll on the TN governor's race after early voting and the result was:
Haslam: 100%
McWherter: 0%
Of course, the small sample size of the two people in my car may cause the margin of error to be rather large, but I believe the predicted winner is accurate.

LOL!

Well, when I went to vote (not Golden Valley), it turned out we have ovals, not arrows, as opposed to my faulty recollection from two years ago.

I voted about 11:30 AM, and there were 30-40 cars in the parking lot with a steady stream of 2-3 people deep to sign in, but no lines waiting out the door.

But we had the same issue with a faulty counting machine.

There were 100-200 ballots filled out, on a chair next to the voting machine: they told me the machine had been on the blink 'till maybe 11:00 AM. I made a mile ruckus but was careful to blame the malfunction on Bill Gates and his lousy software (everything is Microsoft's fault, right?)

Tthe two poll watchers seemed edgy and kept trying to shoo people through to cast their ballot and LEAVE. I have emailed their names to myself for later reference if necessary. One was a woman (maybe 35-40 but I'm lousy with ages), dark shoulderish length hair, heavyset, 5'9" or taller; the other, a woman with silver hair, somewhat slender but not really thin, maybe 60-65 or so.

I smell a RAT.

“Just read Harry Reid’s internal polls show him up 5-8 points??”

They probably factored in the margin of cheating.

I have always wondered about those people that say they refuse to tell anybody who they voted for.

Yeah, I've always wondered the same thing. People just clam up. I have no problem telling people who I voted for if they ask.

How do you like it in that area? We’re daydreaming about a cabin up there. One reason, it seems to be more conservative there.

He was about 100 feet away from the front door of the polling place — anyone know what the rule is ?

In New York, the rule is 100 feet for Republicans, zero feet for Democrats.

Mother in law from Mass, a liberal, can't stand the guy. then again she's so ashamed she voted FOR Obamer that she's scared to vote ever again.

As well she should be.

Well, I voted this morning in SW Pennsylvania. Corbett and Toomey got my vote. Talked with my 86 year old uncle this morning. He is a WW2 Navy vet. He voted republican also. He said he has never seen the country this F#@*#d up! Even during the war!

Get this.

Hubby voted this morning and they asked for ID.

I showed up later, ID at the ready, asked if they wanted to see it and the kid told me, “No. We’re only asking certain people for ID.” I was so shocked I couldn’t even think about asking him just WTH does that mean?

“good luck on gidding rid of that guy.... I held my nose to vote for RINO-Wolf.”

I’m not getting my hopes up too much, but at least Moran is having to work for it this time. I noticed that Wolf is one of the few Rs that WAPO is endorsing.

I don’t have any stats on this but I have a strong sense that whenever there’s a 6 or under plus AGAINST an underdog, the underdog often wins.

Was like this with Scott Brown in Mass as I remember.

I think it’s because a lot of people being polled don’t like to admit they’re voting for the underdog guy but once that curtain closes....

But it’s just a hunch of my part.

Good Ole McLean County.

We are very conservative other than Illinois State University students.

I am guessing the early voters were not students.

If they’re going to ID, they should ID all the voters, shouldn’t they?

I tried calling the GOP Fraud Hotline at 1-888-775-8117 and got a phone company recorded message that the call wouldn't work.

Don't know whether the lines are jammed, or the printed number was wrong, or whether it was a false flag operation by the RATS...

I called the GOP National Committee (phone 202.863.8500), chose "legal" from the menu (option 7) and they hadn't heard of the phone number, and offered me instead the number 202-479-7000 (which I haven't tried yet). So I tried calling the MN GOP House Republican Campaign committee (651.225.8586) and got a recorded message that nobody was there to take my call.

ON ELECTION DAY????

Are these people THAT EFFING INCOMPETENT??????!!!!!!

Voted at 11:45 today in Virginia Beach and turnout was pretty heavy. Praying that Rigell will win tonight and Glenn Nye gets the boot.

This is my first time voting in Virginia as I just moved here. Was asked for my drivers license and to recite my name and address to verify. Never once was asked in St Charles Missouri where I grew up.

When I early voted, they didn’t scan mine but they did ask to see it. They did pull my info up on the SoS votive site but no scans. Maybe the early voting is different...

I’ll find out if they scan my wife’s DL today when she goes and votes.

They had a pot roast slow-cooking, and planned on keeping it for themselves. Smelled great. Pubbies favored! No free pot roast!!!
