This seems to be the format everyone else is using as far as title.
It is going to be surprisingly close IMO, but Bush will pull it out if everyone votes.
Voted in Hampton this morning, decent turnout.
Not really. The last three elections (new polling place this time around) I had to drive past three different polling places to get to mine.
The utter arrogance and outright lying! What is wrong with these people?!?!?
They're Democrats-and not just any Democrats.They're leftists.And panicking.And desperate.And losing.
It took 45 minutes to process through; voted on touch screens. Each check-in line had poll watchers from each major party. Wore my Class A (dress) Army green uniform -- not to intimidate, but just showing (off) that I'm doing my part to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foriegn and domestic!
Estimate when I left at 6:35 AM that 700+ were in line to vote.
I am glad to report that I've seen increasing #'s of Bush/Cheney signs in the area.
I voted in Madison County, rural area, no lines, no hassles, beautiful fall day in the country.
Voted in Arlington this morning (bout 10 min before 0800). Took 1 hour 15 minutes. It seemed that all the folks "helping" were handing out dummocrap sample ballots (an appropriate 40 feet from the polling place). Saw a bunch of kommie buttons also. Not a suprise, the peoples republik of Arlinkton is pretty heavy dum territory.
The missus voted around 10:30 and spent 45 minutes in the process.
Newport News, VA:
I waited until shortly after 10 to vote wanting to avoid the rush.
When I arrived there was a line of cars stretched out from the parking lot waiting for a place to park. I actually had to stand in line to wait to vote. If nothing else, this election did overcome voter apathy.
Just voted, in Chesapeake. The lines were very short, and I had no problems at all.
During the 5 minutes I was there, one man's ballot was thrown out because he had voted for 2 candidates in the same race (he was given a new one to try again, and the old one was placed in a special manilla envelope). The woman in front of me wasn't registered for this particular polling station, so she had to fill out a provisional ballot. Two women were helping each other at one voting booth.
I brought my videocamera, but didn't find anything I felt I should videotape.
I was greeted by a man outside the polling building, handing out flyers encouraging me to vote Republican. I told him I was voting for Bush. That seemed to encourage him.
Heavy turnout in Roanoke area.
My daughter went to go vote (same precinct as mine in No. VA), and brought her 5-year-old son with her. Like me, she got mobbed by the Kerryites. One tried to hand her a voter guide; she said "No thanks." As she proceeded past them, the Kerryite yelled "Bitch!" to her - right in front of my grandson. I'm fuming mad right now, and would like to head back there and punch his lights out!
She did say the Republicans were very nice.
My wife's report from the polls: The person who was supposed to relieve her did not show up, and the lady in charge wants her to stay. In ONE HOUR, she convinced 6 people to change their votes to W! Now you know why I sent her instead of myself! This is exciting !!
I went about 3pm here in Middleburg....it wasn't crowded at all. Only two Kerry people offering literature outside the polling station. It was very sane and orderly.
We are required to show valid ID and be checked off on the registration sheets. This is the way it should be nationwide!
I heard it was crowded early and will probably be later as people vote on the way home from work.
Long Island in the house!!
Just pulled the lever for GW and Virgil Goode. Voted yes on both questions.
Voted this AM in NOVA: In line at 7; finished by 7:30. Line was the longest I've seen at my polling place in 25 years. Everyone was very quiet and seemed more somber than in other years. DNC shills looked shell-shocked. Hardly anyone accepting their literature. Estimate 200 people in line.
MOJO - Please call 497-2222. It's the only republican # I know off hand. My wife worked at Thelma Drakes office yesterday and she said they needed people to give rides to the polls. I would but I've been at work and I have to go again to work this evening. Meantime just about my whole family is out there at the polling place, STILL changing votes!
I voted for sKerry, before I voted against him.
