Voted early (absentee) straight Republican ticket. That way, if I died before the election, I still wanted my vote to count!

10 Ways to Help Before Election Day (Important Repost) ALSO Vote Fraud Report Numbers

1. Join the Sign War

Place a sign in your yard or office window. Drive around your neighborhood to make sure signs didn’t come down overnight. Make sure candidate signs are up and looking sharp.

2. Mail in Absentee Ballots

Make sure your friends and neighbors send in their absentee ballots early.

3. Help with 72-Hour Flushing

The 72-Hour Flushing staff uses the targeted voter information to “flush out” those Republican voters who have not voted. Contact your state party to find out how you can help get these Republican voters to the polls on Election Day.

4. Display a Bumper Sticker

Put a bumper sticker on your car or on a community bulletin board as a morale booster. (To avoid peeling off a sun-worn bumper sticker, tape it to the inside back window of your car.)

5. Celebrate with Signs

Celebrate the democratic process. Gather your friends, find a busy intersection and wave yard signs to support your candidate. You’ll be reminding voters that the election is near and your candidate is the right choice.

6. MAKE THE CALL!

Call friends and neighbors to remind them to vote. Local campaigns and state parties can provide lists of targeted households. Volunteering at a phone bank can also be a lot of fun, and it’s a great way to meet other Republicans in your area.

7. Pass out Campaign Literature

Walk your neighborhood with campaign literature and remind neighbors of the upcoming election. Your personal touch could help the swing voter turn out in the GOP’s favor. Take the kids and make it a family affair.

8. Serve as a 72-Hour Volunteer

HELP WANTED are the watch words in the last 72 hours before the election. Volunteer coordi- nators with each campaign or at the state party will let you know where you’re needed most.

9. WORK THE POLLS

Working with your local campaign or state party, get a list of targeted voters and check this list against the official polling place list to make sure targeted voters have voted.

10. Act as a Designated Driver

Drive volunteers to targeted precincts and get voters to the polls.

Just voted for Mike Fisher (gladly), Melissa Hart and Jane Claire Orie (at least they each have an R next to their names), and Daryl Metcalf (the main reason I went to the polls).

I'm on my way to vote....but hubby just called and gave me a report.

We're in Florida, and when he arrived to vote at 12 minutes before 7AM, there were 40 people ahead of him.
When it officially opened, there were approx. 40 people behind him, as well.(believe me, that's a good turnout!)

We vote Republican and Pro-Life!!

Very busy this morning in Silver Spring MD -- polls opened at 7 am; I arrived at 7:05 and there were about 100 people there. Lots of Erlich (R - for Governor) signs in my neighborhood, so I'm hoping for the best.

Just voted in southern New Jersey. #33. Not that I think it will do any good. Up in North Jersey those dopey dems are voting for the retread - Lautenberg. Southern New Jersey is largely Republican, but we are always outvoted by the more highly populated north end of the state.

Voted yesterday, it took 3hrs and today could very well be longer. The touch-screens work fine and any complaint about them is BS. The Rats have put a lot of time, money and energy into McMumble's campaign. They will be very disappointed!

I'm in PA. Straight Republican for me. I have a question for those who have voted. When I walked in, the older gentleman handed me the Republican leaflet and said, "here, you may want this", or something like that. How did he know I was a Republican? Is it because I showered? I didn't have holes in my clothes? How could he tell?

I just don't get that. When I went to vote today, there was a line, but it was just 10 long, and the ballot took all of about 5 seconds to complete (four races and one ballot question). Three hours! What the heck do they have you do in Florida, vote on every letter in each candidate's name?

Just pushed the "Straight Republican" button! Sending Dan Burton back to Washington. Radio interviews: voters in Indiana concerned about security, education, and economy. If they had interviewed me, I would have said security. Without that secure feeling, might as well forget about education and the economy.

Crawl-through-the-fires-of-hell Republican voter checking in, came back home w/out voting.

Precint is at son's school, the line is impossibly long, so I am going back a little later, after everyone's gone on to work.

Long lines being reported everywhere down here.

Will report back in after voting.

P.S. Got some early numbers from Palm Beach County.

Buchanan is leading.

Voted up here in the western province of USSNY (United Socialist State of New York). Pataki's going to win (not that it matters, EXCEPT to send a message to the Xlintons), so we have a chance to do a little mischief.

Voted Golisano - chance to banish the Dimwits to third place on the ballot next election cycle (if Golisano comes in second, the Indep. party gets second place on the ballot.)

Believe me, that's the only excitement in an otherwise dull election. Wish I lived in Fla (not that I like Fla.) just for today so I could vote for Jeb.

I am curious- about how many voters per precinct in Florida? It would seem to me that the answer to many of the problems would simply be to have more precincts.

Here in Pittsburgh, I don't think we could possibly have hour long lines if we had everyone show up at once.

Well, that's difficult to figure.

It depends where all the dead people are voting.
