That's right . This is the 1st time you have voted in Fla ! It can get pretty testy ~ depends upon the location of course .

Like you we voted no on those constitutional amendments . Each time we voted over the last 10 years the crowds seem to be larger and more agitated .

Pigs indeed Nauti nurse . I could not believe it myself .

Voted in McLean, VA for REPS Warner(Sen) and Wolfe. Emphatic NO on proposed sales tax hike. Moderate turnout in a predominantly REP district. Wife and daughter will vote similarly later. Dem Govenor Warner, real estate developers, and some Reps (Davis) are supporting the sales tax increase for Northern Virginia, which supposedly will be dedicated to improving the transportation infrastructure. Hopefully, it will be defeated despite a massive campaign effort to support it.

Just finished voting here...I was 190th. My husband voted this morning before work (four hours ago) and was the first one to vote.

We are a relatively small precinct outside Tulsa. The polling place was full of elderly people hunched down over their ballots reading them just like they were at a senior citizen center reading the newspaper.

Yes, agreed. We have rain statewide in Louisiana including Landrieu's stronghold of New Orleans. We're praying for a runoff.

Yes Sir, Reporting from California -

Voted on my way to work, straight Republican - except for some a$$hole running for school board. However, I made the decision to accept him graciously on our school board if the Good Lord will deliver Simon to us as Governor.

I remember you from an old thread I have bookmarked. Vote Green?

I did vote for a couple of Green buddies in races where it wouldn't make much difference but I didn't vote for no Dummycrats.

You will get your wish on the runoff. Here in Minnesota I have talked about 6 persons, all women, into voting Coleman over Mondale. His nastiness yesterday in the debate made it an easy sale.

And probly in several places too !!

Unlike the liberals and the amnesty illegals, I know that voting in my current situation is a deportable offence, it's too bad that a blind eye is turned to that kind of thing...I wish to stay here in the USA so I choose to obey the rules like a responsible adult.

Good luck to everyone..hope we send the RATs scurrying ;P

Just voted! Took my mother and we went down to our precinct; we were 875 and 876 voters. My husband voted early; and just as I was going in the door, my niece called from Boone to say SHE had just voted -- STRAIGHT GOP -- without me even MENTIONING it to her -- I am SO PROUD right now! Got two stepdaughters and two sons-in-law to the polls, too! (Didn't remind the "outlaws" -- they still believe Clinton is going to "tax the rich," which, of course, is THEM!!!)

Voted straight-line GOP except for one candidate. Had the good ol' fashioned punch-card ballot here in San Jose, California.

Just returned from voting - straight Republican ticket. My 82 year old mother accompanied me and accidently made her mark for straight democratic - I almost had a heart attack. She realized her mistake (I was giving her "the look" she used to give me), she requested a new ballot, and her all republican vote was cast.

Oh, just wanted to report that here in my very Republican parish voter turnout is extremely high, despite the very bad weather.

I asked about turnout when I was there at about 10 a.m. and the poll workers told me that it was much higher than the 2000 election. My parents vote at another polling place and they were told that turnout so far has been MORE THAN TRIPLE that of the 2000 election. Most of these people are voting Republican!!! Mary Landrieu had better start cleaning out her desk.

I hope everyone's ancedotal evidence about higher then usual voter is true. I feel like the Republican base is VERY mobilized. I as stated earlier they poll workers at my polling place said that they were SUPRISED by the turnout. I was the 27th voter and the polls had onl been open 5 minutes.

They went with me, of course! I sat them up and read the cockfighting State Question to them. They got little cookies and an "I Voted" sticker. The ladies are the same ones that always work this poll and are very sweet and know us.

The last two elections my husband has been first.

Done.

My wife voted for the first time today. I - as usual - voted straight Repub.

But how did I miss this insult: I was gerrymandered into a Democratic House Of Reps district and didn't even know it. Yucch.

I was waiting in line outside the polling place before 7 AM so I could get it out of the way. There were probably about seven people in line ahead of me.

Four races, all with choices. Mine were Mike Fisher (fingers crossed), Tim Murphy (soon to be our newest Congressman), Tom Stepnick (running against a popular incumbent DemonRat), and Ed O'Donnell (sacrificial lamb against an entrenched Demon).

There was also a question that started off with something like, "Should the commonwealth of Pennsylvania incur a debt of $100,000,000 to..." That's usually all it takes for me to vote NO!

Interesting that your poll worker asked you for your address.

The rolls are listed according to address so you have to start by giving them your address. Problem with that is that someone can use anyone's address if they are the same gender and know the right name to use.

I voted straight republican in Houston. Didn't vote straight party but went through race by race so I could see all the names.

Good News! There were NO races in which the Pubs were not represented but plenty in which the dims did not field a candidate.

I voted at 7:00 AM with my grandaughter "poking the holes".
She asked me (in her outside voice) why I was voting "no" on everything. LOL

I have had trouble posting this morning. Sorry, if this is a double post.

I just voted here in Colorado for Wayne Allard for US Senate. Turnout in the two different precincts where I had to go was light.(Which is good as they are heavily democratic districts!) New districts/precincts have really screwed up voting locations which will depress voting further. Time for broken class Republicans to step up to the plate.

Regards,

TS
