ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***
FREE REPUBLIC!!! | 11-6-12 | Free Republic

Posted on 11/06/2012 3:18:47 AM PST by RKBA Democrat

The polls are open on the east coast!!

From this morning's election day prayer thread:

"Heavenly Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. May you forgive us who are members of your Church who have neglected our calling and commitment to you to be effective witnesses and stewards of the many blessings you have generously bestowed upon us. Many of us have cried out to you for the past few years as never before and we humbly beseech you to bring an overwhelming, crushing defeat on the forces of darkness in our nation. First we pray that you quicken your Church by your spirit and lead us to unity to stand against the onslaught of darkness upon us. May you smash every crooked deed as evil men and women try to hold onto power and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your hand is in this. Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.

May you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have passed that is harmful to this nation. May you make every policy they make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them. May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice. However we also pray that through this that you open their eyes to the truth and in your mercy that you bring these people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to serve as a witness to many. May you also use this to bring revival across our nation and a restoration of a culture that glorifies You. We also pray for those just leaders in our government who are struggling against the lawless. We pray for your protection and that you embolden them to do what is right to triumph in the election and in the arena of ideas. May you also continue to open the hearts and minds of the American people to the the truth and draw them towards yourself to be renewed in repentance and spiritual rebirth.

And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!"

Anyone got the official link for Ohio Election returns?

I checked the Ohio SOS site but can't seem to find anything.

I just voted in Warren County, Ohio, one of the reddest of red Ohio counties. I was first in line 45 minutes prior to the polls opening. By the time they opened at 6:30, the line was HUNDREDS deep. It has NEVER been like that.

Obama's 2012 campaign doesn't even mention "hope" and "change", the very theme and justification of his 2008 candidacy and Presidency. This is evidence of a demagogue using "feel good" words that had no substance, upon the gullible to gain power in order to replace freedom with socialist tyranny.

America's constitutional republic has made it the land of the free and the home of the brave and the greatest county in the world. Obama's failed administration and socialist agenda is and has proven to be HOPELESS and America desperately needs a CHANGE.

Our parish is having a 40 Hours, which ends this evening.

Can't think of a better place to be.

Our priest has told us all to remember our Catholic Faith when we vote today.

Prayers up.

I hope you awake to a new president in America. If not, I may be joining you in Southeast Asia. It is just too painful watching this country destroy itself. We voted by mail, Oregon, and watch with great hope ( the anti Obama style “hope”).

Checking in, and heading off to polls at 9am. I’ll try FR later, but I won’t be expecting to get back in here unless they plug-in all the servers and bring in some extra hamsters.

I’m in although I probably won’t be able to load it after about 10 a.m. CDT.

Yep, the gremlins seem to hit at 10 these days so I logged on early to catch up on things. Fingers and toes crossed that today is worth getting up for but not counting on it.

From my little corner of the world.

I was in line at 5:45AM EST. I was #6 in line. All working men ahead of me.

In ‘08, I arrived at the same time and was probably #20 or so in line. I was surrounded by young people, many talking about never having voted before. Many in house clothes, which is to say not going to work.

When the polls opened at 6:00 this morning, there were 40-50 working Americans in line patiently waiting to vote. The crowd was bigger than 2000 and 2004, but they were the real face of the precinct; working men and woman. By the time I voted and left, there were 100 or more in line. All dressed for work.

Based on my narrow view of things from the line I stand in to vote every election, Republicans are turning out big time.

-

Every year, the guy running the precinct comes out and does the “Hear ye, hear ye. The polls are now open.” It’s really worth getting up for and standing in the cold. For me, it is an affirmation of my freedom. Gives me chills every time I hear it.

Just returned from voting. Some local newsgal, pollster, whatever asked me as I came out “ Are you here to vote?” I said ‘Duh, I’ve waited four years for this moment.’ “May I ask who you voted for?” ‘Sure. Romney.’ “ Was that because you are racist as some people are saying for motivation?” I said ‘ Not at all. I hate his white half too.’ The look on her face was worth the whole episode.

First in line in District 2 New London CT. VERY blue neighborhood yet an astounding lack of Obama voters. Out the door by 6:07. Everything seemed to be working well.

Ledyard, CT. Poll doors open at 0600 but made the voters stand out in the 24 degrees for 20 minutes before any voters actually taken in to vote.

I had the distinct privilege of casting the first vote in my little village !

Got to my polling place in central PA at 0630, and by the time the doors opened at 7 there were already ~25 in line, with more cars pulling in every minute or two.

Great chatter with several others who got there shortly after me, with the concensus being we were all more eager to cast today's votes than any time since Reagan !

When the election official asked for my name, I took my time getting the wallet out, while stating in a clear full voice that "I'm (tomkat) and I'm proud to show my eligibility to vote for President Romney".

It's gonna be a long day's wait, but by tonight we'll have served a tsunami-sized eviction notice on the most hideous presidential mistake this country's ever made !

I know this: If Obama wins this thing...I never want to hear another word about oversampling of democrats in polls. Even if its a close Romney win...all this talk about oversampling will be proven wrong.

Here's to hoping there's something to this idea and here's to an early end of the night...

Well, here in Arlington VA, at 7AM there was a ridiculously long line of hundreds of people snaking down several blocks at the polling location. I am just going to go to work and come back this afternoon to vote.

Arlington went 72% for Obama in 2008, and this neighborhood is overwhelmingly young single white professionals.

People work themselves into a bit of a frenzy of optimism on these threads.

North Stafford County, Virginia: Polls opened at 6 AM. My wife and I got in a LONG line at 6:35 AM, the temperature is 27 degrees. It took 25 minutes as the Poll workers were very efficient and got people through without any troubles.

My only disappointment was the line was nearly half full of Negroes and south of the border types (who have migrated from Prince William County after they enacted tough immigrant laws). Stafford County was, and always has been a bastion of conservatism but now so many liberals from the northern counties and Maryland have infested us I fear for the outcome.

I am hoping this was the anomaly and that the rest of the day has conservatives coming in after they get off work (I took a few days of use-or-lose vacation time just for the vote).

My daughter will be voting for Romney/Ryan when she awakens (24 year old lazy slug :-) ) and her boyfriend, a Marine Reservist, will drive up from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond to vote after his classes end this afternoon. There are at least four votes for freedom right there.

I’m so sick of the media, including Faux News, as they gleefully report...’it’s a tie’ ‘it’s a tie’.

I hope after today we will wipe those smiles of their faces.

Drove through Mt. Airy on Sunday (first time in almost twenty years, and went to MA middle school back in the 80’s)!
Voted at 640 with my husband in NJ, and no one was in line. Made smal talk with polling ladies about the ridiculousness of not needing to show ID (we recently moved and misplaced our voter ID’s, so a DL should have been required, I am sure we all agree). The ladies agreed, and said hopefully, next time...
My dear (politically ignorant) husband voted for O last time, but was straight ticket R this time. I told him we might get divorced if he didn’t, but he has seen the light over the last year, so not to worry.
Of course, now that NJ can vote via email or fax, I assume our votes were entirely wasted. I really think they did that because internal polling showed NJ was too close for dem comfort. SIgh. I am surrounded by nothing but RR signs and bumper stickers.

Totally agree,

having said that, just looking into the electoral stats at an armchair level, it seems strange very strange about the over sampling, to suggest a greater turnout for dems this year, than 2008 seems a little odd.....but on the wider point, if that is how it turns out, the last thing we want to hear next time is cries of oversampling!!

I think it does Romney a favor as it did Reagan to have expectations downplayed.....people are all the more eager to vote!

Any notes on turnout levels? Especially interested in racial makeup...if blacks vote like 2008 that will lend more credence to polls with Obama ahead, for example.

Thank you for the heartfelt prayer FRiend. I pray that He strengthens us in this fight.

DH voted on the way to work before 7am, and said there was a line out the door, (never noted by us before at this solidly Republican precinct!). The pollworkers said 41% of the precinct had already voted early, so this big turnout today looks good :)

Will report in again when I get back in from my voting run.

May God keep watch.
