I voted. got there at 5.40 (polls opened at 6.30) and it STILL took about an hour. It was crazy-nutty at the polls with poll workers looking like deer caught in the headlights. Poor souls.

I voted a few weeks ago. My commute takes me past my polling place though, and today the line was outside the door and it looked like about a 20 minute wait to even get in the building.

The Obama campaign was out in force, with people on the major street corners, waving huge signs trying to get cars to honk in reply. Reminded me of a pep club car wash in High School. (Times ten.)

I voted on Saturday, since I am working out of my county, at a new job and all.

It was packed but I was in and out in like 15 minutes. I'm thinking of a letter to the editor to commend the volunteers.

My brother was there. I'm quite sure we cancelled each other's votes, on most things.

He said he was feeling a bit dis-en-french-fried, though.

He's a nut.

Three of us went 15 minutes after polls open.

The line was longer than I've ever seen, about 100 yards beyond the door.

People were in good spirits. The line moved quickly, the county anticipated turnout and ordered extra machines.

I went this morning, 20 min after the polls opened. 20 min after that, I was on my way to work .

I was the 103rd person in line (by my count) when the polls opened this morning. There were only ten people in line by the time I left. Really not freaking cool.
