Post what you're seeing, hearing in your district, county or state during the day and evening- anecdotal or otherwise!
I, too, used to think it was some groovy TV station...it is still my first reaction whenever I see it posted. ;)
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.
Bookmarking for later!
elementary schools at El Mirage/Buckeye and 67th Ave/Buckeye
“Just read Harry Reids internal polls show him up 5-8 points??”
They probably factored in the margin of cheating.
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.
Honestly- don’t even care if they’re conservative, libertarian or democrats today- just want em to vote R!!!
In New York, the rule is 100 feet for Republicans, zero feet for Democrats.
Yep, some of them poll watchers are probably reading the writing on the wall, and volunteering today isn’t so fun, if your a Democrat...
“Today is HUGE and SERIOUS!”
That would be HUGH and SERIES! in FRspeak.
4PM west coast...
Heh. Makes me smile.
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.
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.
Is that a heavily dem area? I live in No. Phoenix near 17 and 101.
Good Ole McLean County.
We are very conservative other than Illinois State University students.
I am guessing the early voters were not students.
Are there more than one of you in Mass? /sar
If it was, as you describe, “a kid”, I’d cut him some slack thinking he meant to say “random” instead of “certain”.
Ping to #367
LOL- I thought that too!
GOOD to see you Miss Didi :)
I’m nervous about NV...there’s SO much pressure there.
If they’re going to ID, they should ID all the voters, shouldn’t they?
Oh well. I look like a bag lady so he probably thought I was a demorat.
Will be giving Arcuri my boot after 4PM!
Calm down. I already voted.
Interesting. Mine is from India, and has a goatee, I tease him he could pass for a terrorist when he scowls or is thinking serious things—I’ll see if they ask for my voter’s card or DL when I go to vote in a few!
Yes, it will be like 2008...instead of crossover republicans...it is crossover dems!!! And you can bet those Republicans that crossed over....have had nightmares about that vote ever since. Bet there are NO mad Republicans/Conservatives that sit this one out!!!
They DO demand to see your DL. They actually scan the back of it. It's State law.
Thanks for the tips! They are indeed helpful.
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??????!!!!!!
What a stinking hypocrite!
THe Fraud line that is being reported is not a working line. I obtained the working number from our state RNC. It is as follows: 1-888-404-2863.
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.
Yeah, I voted for him last time and all I got was 10 lbs of Rutabagas. I'm glad I voted for him though because his opponent was offering 20 lbs of Rutabagas.
Sounds like Scott Brown all over again!!! And those fools didn’t listen when he won.
The states closing at 7 eastern are: VT, VA, SC, GA, KY, IN.
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.
Heavy turnout in my precinct, and that’s unusual for a mid-term election.
I am hoping for the best!
Rutabagas?! Damn, you’re lucky! He sent me a burlap sack full of dead mice and two crates of ketchup.
Any updates from DE?
HAHAHA! I know, I thought that myself when I moved here!
This thread will easily see 10,000 by tonight — Oh to have a dollar for every post — our FREEPATHON would be OVER.
You, too, Mom...thanks for the thread! Campaign Carl said it might be an early night in Nevada. :) Rush is pretty positive today!
They had a pot roast slow-cooking, and planned on keeping it for themselves. Smelled great. Pubbies favored! No free pot roast!!!
