Probably lining up to vote against Gov. Brewer then. Not that it will do them any good.

I'm in central Florida (crazy Grayson's district) and voted this morning around 9:30. There was a steady stream of people but the line was short. Hubby voted earlier than me, around 7:30 am, and said it was packed. Most of the voters I saw looked clean cut and professional so that was a good sign.

Also, last night we went out to dinner and overheard two middle-aged people discussing their political affiliation and what not...they each said that they are registered Democrat but will be voting Republican today!

Arrived at polling location in Conyers, Georgia at 7:30 AM. Had to circle the school parking lot twice to find a space.

The line was 40 people deep, longer than I had seen even in 2008. A photographer from the local newspaper was taking pictures and asked “Is it always this crowded this early in the morning?”

District is evenly divided between parties. Seemed to be more conservative leaning folks. Most seemed very upbeat. Poll workers were grouchy but thorough in checking IDs, etc.

People here are VERY motivated to keep Roy Barnes out of the Governor’s mansion. He made a huge mess of the educational system the last time he was there.

Good turnout at my local polling place in western burbs of Chicago. I’d have to say the most I’ve ever seen on an election day and a lot of men.

Good turnout expected here in North Louisiana. Kids in our parish are home for the day but surrounding parishes are having regular classes.

This newspaper quote tickled me :

registrar of voters

“I think people are wanting to send someone to Washington, D.C. who will vote the conscience of the American people.”

AMEN SISTA !!!

My wife and I voted at 9:45 PDT in a moderate to slightly conservative precinct in San Diego. The poll workers said that turnout had been heavier than usual to that point.

My husband and I voted at 7 this morning. There were a few in line but not a long wait.

We are voting a new Mayor and expect a heavy turnout.

BTW, it’s raining here so that means most Democrats won’t bother.

Hope that means our current Mayor loses. WOO HOO !

I dream big. :)

North of I-80, heavy dead turn-out is reported.

Same situation happened at my voting place this morning. I asked the pollworkers and they said they can "ASK" for ID, but if someone doesn't want to show it, then they can't legally turn them away. Gulp.

Wow. Not so in OHIO. Got to show proof to vote.

Thanks Kabar

That’s the same arm patch I wore on my U.S. Army uniform when I was stationed in Germany in 1970-71.

It was refered to a the USAEURA insignia (U.S. ARMY EUROPE).

I just came across an envelope full of military patches a few weeks ago while cleaning out my desk and found several of them, along with olive drab name patches and my E-5 rank patches.

That picture is a keeper!

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.

The area is absolutely beautiful... If you want to be just a seasonal person, you will probably love it.

However, if you are looking at moving here, well, let's just say there is much behind the scenes that most people do not see unless they move here.

As to conservative --- mostly yes -- however, we are getting a huge influx of "citidiots" who are bringing their socialist policies with them. They've managed to wreck the Twin Cities area and seem to be more than happy to wreck it up here too.

PM me though if you have any specific questions --- happy to help.

(I posted this earies oh the Florida thread but I wanted you to see it.)

I voted last Thursday at around 2:45pm at the city Library in Ormond Beach FL in Volusia County. Had to drive around a little to find a spot, and empty spots were filled almost as soon as they were emptied.

Inside , while standing in line to wait for my turn, the conversation between the ladies working the sign in was pretty funny from “Is it EVER gonna slow down?” to “I’ve never seen it like this!!”.

I almost got into it with the lady who finally did wait on me when she tried to ask for “additional” ID besides my DL AND Voter’s Registration Card.

Ouickly, with a very serious and very stern look starring straight into her eyes, I replied in my best and fairly loud (and have fooled friends with over the phone) “ghetto” dialect:

“Well if I knowed ya’ll was gonna axe me dat I needed dat, I wuda brung my light bill!!”

... with the “light bill” being previously the ONLY ID required and was easily accepted as voting ID in certain parts of the city of Daytona Beach voting area,( which is THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT BLACK ) so they would not be “disenfranchised”.

She immediately got the hint as the focus of pretty much the whole room (and ESPECIALLY her fellow workers on either side of her) QUICKLY turned to HER and me.

Redfaced, she suddenly returned my ID and let me sign my name. By how uppity she acted, and knowing I was a registered Republican, I can bet you ANYTHING from her actions that she was a dem and it felt great to embarsss her.

I voted and my ballot went into the reader with out a problem. The counter on the machine, which had been in use since Monday, read 4883.

That is the leaflet that was handed out to Allied Forces on D-Day before they launched the attack. It brings chills just reading it. Our very survival depended then on victory and it does so today. We must defeat these Marxist bastards. There is no substitute for Victory.

I was assigned to our Mission in West Berlin 1983-87 as a diplomat. I served a year in Vietnam at NSA Danang 1967-68 as a naval officer.

Midterm Election 2010: All Day Blogging

###

Excerpt:

Extensive polling leading up to election day 2010 has indicated a massive wave for the GOP in the House to take control and modest wins in the Senate where only about of a third of the seat are even part of the election, making it unlikely the GOP will take control of the Senate.
