    Voted: 9:00 am, Manassas, VA

    Lines were short, took ten minutes.

    Problems: The machine I voted on wouldn't get off the FIRST screen until I pressed Next five times. Touchscreen problems with some of these machines? I informed our local news.

    You?

    Voted last Monday, 10:15 AM, took 20 minutes from arrival to departure. In Broward County, Florida we mark paper ballots, that we then feed into optical reader machines to record our votes. I don't know if the ballots are retained after the election for a manual recount if needed.

    Voted at 6:15 AM CST in Chicago

    Line was long. I got there before the polls opened, I was 3rd in line, but let others who had to go to work go first.

    I already mailed-in this year, my first time using a mail-in ballot. My last polling place in south Florida was always a breeze but my last time with my new location parking was a bitch for early voting at the library which I did because regular voting here is at a Baptist Church, no thank you.

    I don't know how well I trust mail-in, though I suppose anything can be fucked with if someone is ill-intentioned, so I figure my risk level is similar regardless of method. I did enjoy the convenience of mail-in very much and think this is the way for me to go for future voting too. It is not as engaged-feeling as going to a polling place, but I have no reason to go to church. I think that's bullshit and I want no part of it.

    In line now. A looong line, 45 minutes to an hour. I'm told it was over two hours earlier today. No evidence of low turnout here.

    In our county lines were very long around 6 am, even though polls started at 7 am.

    Voted. Gary Johnson for President, Therese Ford for US House of Rep. District 02 and and Bobby Vance for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

    Most likely, none of my candidates will win today, so good luck to the rest of you.

    Well if we get specific, I voted Obama, Sherrod Brown, and Jeff Sinnard for House even though he admits he won't win, but I was Gerrymandered out of my original district.

    Y'all cancelled each other out. Then I voted Democratic - well, I voted for a Green candidate for the County Board (I've voted Republican before, I wish the Dems didn't have quite so much of a monopoly.) My vote therefore tilted in the Dems' favor so they're sure to win. icon_wink.gif

    Outside Santa Fe NM about 6 miles - a local community school was the voting place about 4 minutes from my house by car. Parking lot had quite a few cars (many probably belong to the poll volunteers), but inside not but a handful of voters actually at the booths. No lines. 10 minutes to: check in at the right precinct table (several precincts sharing the voting location) and to vote on a fill-in-the-bubble paper ballot, scanned into a machine, and to get my sticker.

    Go vote guys!

    voted a little after noon. I am in a heavy democratic ward of the city of Milwaukee and it took only 10 minutes...about 20 other people voting. Got reports from friends outside of the city in waukesha and the fox valley, both neavy republican areas that lines were extremely long. Also heard that turnout in peoples republic of Madison was down...bad weather there

    Wisconsin shocks the country tonight!!
