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!"

Turnout has been good at my precint. Wife says it was real busy at 7 am cst today. The before work crowd.

I went at 1:30 pm today and I was in and out in five minutes. Steady but not packed. They had 8 machines total and it quick to do the paperwork and then get a machine.

Started filling up as I left. Workers said it picks up in the late afternoon and then especially with the after work crowd.

This precint will go probably 90% for Romney.

Only four things to vote on: President; US Senator; our US Representative and my state rep.

I voted for Romeny but NOT for Sen. Bob Corker. Corker will win easy so I voted for the Constitutional candidate. I went ahead and voted for Marsha Blackburn although she had more opponents this time than past. She’s a shoo-in.

My state rep, Joe Durham, was unapposed so basically won the seat by winning the primary.

Voted in Olathe, KS mid morning. Very orderly, not too busy. Touch screen worked without flaw. Several other polling places had several cars in pk lots.

According to local radio...

Boston turnout DOWN 7% compared to ‘08.

Huge turnout in suburbs, especially Republican strongholds, like Attleboro.

This will work in Brown’s favor.

If true, that is very bad news for Obama, because it means that he cannot hope to rack up the same early voting lead that he had in 2008.

I am amazed that they didn't figure this out sooner. LS, Ravi, and others have been tracking this for a month.

Not surprising, as I've thought the past week or so that gas prices coming down a bit are indicative of Energy's take on today's outcome !

Get gas back down to $2, cripple the EPA nazis, and watch this depression melt away like a spring snow . . .

Thank you. It’s been a community wide effort. First of all I want to thank this random citizen, Jose, on twitter for putting that spreadsheet together.

WHY NO MSM/REPUBLICAN OUTLET WOULD HAVE KEPT UP WITH THAT IS BEYOND ME!

But thank you, thank you, Jose. We added bits here and there but that was all him, every nite or every few nites, going to 88 counties’ websites and calculating R/D/I for that day/week. Very tedious work and he did it!

But once that data was out there - it was easy for anyone to see. MSM chose to ignore it at their own peril.

But we saw it and analyzed it and knew their turnout models, proportion of R/D/I in polls, percentage of early voting - none of it made any sense in their public polls based on this data.

They were blinded to reality.

Voting was heavy here in Virginia. I voted for the Democrat with five houses rather than the one-house Democrat. Yeah, I’m a “lesser of two evils” guy.

Hannity’s buddy Billy Cunningham is reporting as of 3 O’clock the turn out in the heavily Repub Hamilton county Ohio is about 75% and may make 80%.

Just cast my vote for Mitt. Our polling place is a small VFW post just outside of London,KY. No wait, but I did vote at 2:45 and it’s a fairly out of the way polling location. The local high school was busy this morning with voters. So, I’ve done my part and now it’s time for the prayers and a bit of anxiety. In my 41 years, I feel this is an historic election, and one that will determine the fate of our country. May God Impart some wisdom upon our friends in Ohio, PA, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Thanks for the check in!

I’m on lunch break right now, then back to the phones. Apparently ORCA didn’t need me, but might swing by there with some cellphone rapid chargers tonight.

I early voted on Friday. The wait was about 2 hours.

Voted in South Union Twp in SW Pa.(50 miles S. of Pittsburgh)I was numeber 423 at 9 am I have never been more than number 75 at that time. Wife voted at 3pm and was 1217. I have never, in 37 years of voting, seen this kind of turn out. The line is now out the door of the school.

On my way to turn in my paper ballot I held so that anyone that looked could see very easily who I voted for.

This is why my Dad floated around in the Pacific for 4 years in WWII.

May God bless my great country!

Just voted for Romney here in Victorville, CA for all the good it will do. Moderate turnout but orderly. Ran into a couple of Obama supporters with their requisite Obama/Che-styled t-shirts at the Stater Bros while picking up my election day libation. “I just love him and her and Biden.” Delusional. Looking forward to spending the day with freepers. God help us.

Yes, Lynch is a very liberal Democrat governor here in NH and the economy here stinks as a result of his policies.

His term is up and uber-liberal Democrat Maggie Hassanis running to replace him as governor of the state of NH. Maggie is a real piece of work. She lives in a 3/4 of a million $ house in Exeter, property-tax-free and is in favor of raising taxes on all of us. She is in favor of establishing a NH state income tax and her husband, the president of Phillips-Exeter Academy has invited Van-Jones the avowed communist to address the PEA student body and faculty. He has also invited numerous Muslim leaders, who have connections to Hammas and the Muslim Brotherhood, to speak to the student body and faculty while he has served as vice president and president of the Academy. He has also established a Muslim student club on campus = the MSM, which is a front for and an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood!

Under Hassan's leadership (yes he is of "Middle-Eastern" descent) the board of directors of Phillips-Exeter Academy voted unanimously to remove all references to the Lord Jesus Christ and Christianity from the PEA chapel which was dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ! These steps and moves were made with the total support of the PEA chaplain! Under Hassan's leadership, they have also put a Muslim prayer room in the PEA chapel. That same year the board of directors also voted unanimously have homosexual dorm parents living and supervising the students in the PEA dorms. Maggie is in support of all of these moves and has said nothing in opposition to any of these things her husband has done.

Needless to say, please, please be praying for Ovid Lamontain, the Republican candidate for governor of NH, thanks.

I don’t care about the “exit polls” after the fact.

In 2000, they were wrong, and in 2004, they were wrong again - big time.

In 2004, I was here trying the calm the hysterical bedlam that was taking place as the “exit polls” were absurdly idiotic.

Prayers up...
Quite frankly, anything that happens at PEA is for the richie rich parents who foot that Hassan guy’s lifestyle and agenda to worry about. At least, you the NH tax payer don’t have to fund it, right?
Imposing a state income will no doubt not go over very well. Isn’t the state over run by hypocrite MA voters who escaped the MA taxes by moving to NH?
I told my relative to enjoy it while he can...being a lib dim, he’ll be out of work shortly...I HOPE!

Thrilled to hear about the record crowds. I can only report that the mood is quiet here in Manhattan...very little chatter about the election. I am feeling very excited inside as I continue to pray...after saying the rosary in church just now, a wonderful calmness came over me. Whatever happens, like always, it will be good to be among FRiends.

Nothing solid about WI yet, though the MacIver Institute has been tweeting andecdotal info all day, and it sounds as though they are seeing Walker Recall level turnout in the GOP areas. I’m hoping Charlie Sykes has some updates later.

Heard Bill Cunningham talking to Sean Hannity about suburban Cincinnati turn out with fact data: huge turnout for Republicans, low turnout for Democrats. Statistically great for Romney, bad for Obama. Cunningham was thrilled to say he’s confident Ohio goes Romney!

My husband have traditionally been frustrated that our Presidential votes don’t seem to count since the state has gone for the democrat since Nixon. We are slightly optimistic that MN could go “red” this year, though.

The turnout at our polling place was looking good this AM, but since it’s a new polling location for our precinct, it’s hard to tell.

However, the unoffical “Denny’s Restaurant” poll where we went for breakfast after voting showed Romney winning in a landslide!

Wow! I am in Westmorland County, PA. I decided to vote at what normally is an off time of 2:00PM. I just got back in. I have never seen this many voters. I was #1512 of 3000 total precinct votes at 3:30P.M. A 50% turnout already.

The line was over 100 people long and apparently has been that way since the poll opening. There is something going on. This is like the Bush-Gore election on steroids.
