The "I voted" Thread

If you have voted, you could state it below if you want ;)

Maybe you voted early this year? Maybe you have voted or will vote today? Either way, this thread is not meant as a moral judgement on anyone who has chosen not to vote, or to people who were unable to vote.

I voted this morning. It was cold out. There were just a handful of people ahead of me. I wrote my signature on the wrong line of the sign in form :happy3: What about you?

    I voted just a moment ago. I hit it at exactly the right time, when the 12pm lunch crowds were clearing out. It only took 15 min or so.

    Now, I will be keeping everything I can cross... Crossed.

    Reposted from another thread:

    I went at 7:00 this morning to vote and waited for 90 minutes. I was a half hour late for work, but it was well worth it. If you encounter long lines, don't get off them. There's no guarantee they'll get any shorter. Just be patient and make your voice heard. Mind you, the city I live in was affected by a hurricane last week and our governor signed an executive order allowing those that were displaced to vote anywhere, as some polling sites are still without power or are badly damaged. So waits at some locations may be longer than usual. Considering what some distant relatives of mine and other ancestors went through just to exercise this right, waiting for 90 minutes is nothing.

    I voted! I count!

    I voted yesterday morning. It took an hour but going yesterday and waiting for an hour was better than going today and waiting for who knows how long. Plus, I got to sleep later today because I voted yesterday!!

    I voted this morning a little after 10 AM. There was no line to speak of; there were only two people ahead of me and a couple people already voting. I did the electronic ballot this time and was in and out in less than 10 minutes. It took me longer to walk Davin and the little girl I babysit in and out to the car...LOL The polling ladies were very sweet and gave the kids stickers, too. :)

    I voted this morning. One of the guys on the ballot actually had "Honey Badger" as part of his name!

    Nope, he'll be a senior too, but he turned 14 in October.

    I knew he was older than mine, but I thought it was by at least a year, and not a few months. Cool.

    Aw!

    I just voted. I tried first at 11:30, but the line was pretty long, so I decided to go back at around 2:15. Hardly any line and it took about 10 minutes.

    At risk of sounding like one of those "my vote doesn't count" people, the presidential race isn't close in my state. I haven't been keeping track of the polls for senator, but I thought Elizabeth Warren might be able to use my help. And I really wanted to vote on the questions! (Except for one, which I didn't understand--it had to do with auto repair or something.)

    Wow, goldy, that's quite a wait! Mr B and I just got back from voting - we were in & out in under 10 minutes. I know this will sound silly to those of you with long waits, but normally I might have 2 or 3 people in front of me when I walk in. Today there were about 15 people ahead of us. That's a lot for our small community. And, yes, we got stickers. :icon_smile:

    I voted early this morning before work (6:30AM). Our normal polling place had no power, but they moved all the voting to the library. There was a line but it moved quickly -- took maybe 10 or 15 minutes.
  • KorkscrewKorkscrew Posts: 1,834Registered Users
    SuZen, I know this is totally off topic, but, my God: your hair. Is it really as silver as it appears in your icon ... or was that from the lighting used when the pic was taken?

    Either way, your hair looks amazing :love7:
