hell yea out there at 6:30 for 7 opening and the line was already 200 deep.

fortuantly where we vote is a DCYF building so i had door parking.

then some 80yo guy in front of me uses his ball point pen to connect the arrows.
the machine jams and shuts the whole voting process down. twenty minutes later it was decided
votes could be placed in a secure pocket on the door until counted later by both parties.

I am proud to be a non-voter :)

It's not that I don't care, it's just I don't see a big enough difference between the two to actually have interest in supporting one over the other.

Just in from voting. The lines are thinning now that people are at work, but it's going to be pandemonium after 6pm in the city.

Pandemonium.

Went to vote before work this morning. There's usually NEVER a line at the church I'll vote at, but this morning, it was wayyy out into the parking lot. It made me happy. :)

That's why it's great that we have third parties.

There was some pretty good diversity in ideals this year, third party, wise. Everything from Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party) and Bob Barr (Libertarian) to Cynthia McKinney (Green/Socialist).

I went to the gym at 5:00 this morning, then hit the voting booth right afterwards, around 6:15. It was packed, but I only waited for like 15 minutes. Most of the people there were dealing with provisional status ballots.

My wife works in Philly, and she voted with me this morning, but said it's insane out there. She walked by several polling places on the wall in to work, and the lines were incredibly long.

Going to vote before work, I hope the lines aren't to long, I'm not much a line waiter. But I want my vote for change to count. Especially my state has pretty much decided the last two elections.

I'll be going before I head to work @ 2:00.

And those of you that don't vote because you don't like the two "main" parties, go and vote for someone else: there are other options.

I mailed my absentee ballot in last week.

One of the best things about voting absentee is that I can sit down at my computer with the ballot and look up all the candidates for things like judges and SWCD supervisors.


And :werd: to JR and Dave on the third parties.

As JR said, that is why there are third party candidates. Go out and vote. There were men and women who a few hundred years ago sacrificed their lives in the hope that one day they could have representation in the government...even today there are people who do not have a say in the government that controls them.

Anyway, I voted early on Halloween....I like spending time to research every candidate (from president to state auditor) before I vote.....as i am unaffiliated, I want to vote for (in my opinion) the most qualified candidate and know who I am voting for, not just voting across a party line.

I'm registered independent. I did vote, i worked last night, got off at 6 this morning and went and voted. Was in line a good hour. Here in Lexington though we have the electronic voting machines.

I didn't "not vote" because I didn't like either party, I think both Obama and McCain will make decent presidents, and regardless of who wins it's not going to influence the country a great amount.

I didn't because I'm registered and TN, and working in NC. I kept putting off doing absentee, and voting early on the weekends I was home :( :slap: At least the girlfriend, my sister, and my parents all voted.

I did, first time ever. Wouldn't it just be the biggest kick in the ass if one of those third party guys won the presidency?? I think it's high time people started showing the gubment we don't like what's going on.
