Whats this with Zogby having VA tied??

It is going to be surprisingly close IMO, but Bush will pull it out if everyone votes.

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.

Got in line at 5:50 AM in Newington Forest (Springfield, VA) Elementary School; estimate 500+ people in front of me. Most took voter guides from the republican worker.

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.

In the liberal bastion of Virginia, City of Alexandria, the Del Ray area, I arrived at 6:03 a.m., I was #166, and waited over 30 minutes. I am certainly glad to hear that the rest of the state is showing up to cancel out the pro-Kerry votes from my area. I can't tell if the people in the lines were Bush or Kerry supporters --- maybe, some were enjoying a guilty pleasure of voting for Bush in a pro-Kerry area.

I am glad to report that I've seen increasing #'s of Bush/Cheney signs in the area.

I stood with a Bush/Cheney Sign in One hand and "A Vote for Kerry is a Vote for Osama" Sign in the other hand. My favorite moment of the morning was hearing a child in the back seat of a car asking his mom, "Are you voting for Osama?"....my first thought was "from the mouth of babes". His mom did not look happy. All morning long I was greeted with "thumbs up and smiles" or with "Middle Fingers Up and Lip Sync'd Obscenities". Apparently, none of the Kerry supporters saw the UBL translations of threats for States that go Bush (when confronted)...confirms the suspicion that the mass media has kept them shielded.

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.

"VOTE HARD!"

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.

Today, My daughter and I worked the polls, for her gov't class.
Reston is considered very liberal area of No. Virginia. Taking that into consideration we gave out more Bush voter sample ballots than we did in 2000.

I had more people come up to us than I could ever expect.
That being said, this area of Reston will still go heavly dem's . Sorry to say........

no trouble as far as we could tell......

Mud, this is sad but I guess typical:

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.

Go Bush/Cheney!

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!
