The guy at the Chinese restaurant last night reminded me that today is erection day!

Me, too. In & out of the voting booth by 0630...The outcome is yet to be seen...
I voted by mistake.
I saw the long lines and figured the Powerball jackpot must really be getting up there.
Why else would Americans stand in line?
it's just like the lotto. either way your chances of losing are pretty good.
Wish my poles were open that early.
I'll have to catch them in the evening. Thankfully I don't have to work late. I really wish my state offered early voting.
How long would you wait in line to vote? I think I would wait 20 minutes at the most.
My coworker's daughter waited a few hours this morning in NYC to vote. She had to leave the line because of a doc's appt.
Just voted and met an old friend I used to work with as she was working the polls. Indicated that turnout was very high, big line at the opening bell of 7:00am.
Going to be a long night I think.
When I was at the poll this AM, the first hour saw 34 voters, the second hour saw 44 voters. I got there right after 8, and there was no line, but there were other voters. Before 9 and after 5 seem to be the busiest times, I hear. I wouldn't know, there's never been a line here!
I was the 47th person who voted this morning, cool morning in our neck of the woods, 14 degrees at 5:30 this morning.
My Precinct used to be a block away but because of redistricting it was changed last year to different location 3 blocks from home.Polling places open at 7AM statewide,I was there at 645,maybe 20 in line ahead of me.Some trouble with the machines (surprise) they werent accepting ballots.You had to leave the ballot sheet in that tray since the machine wouldnt take it.Some one was on the way to fix the machine.And the officials were supposedly going to collect them manually today if that wasnt working yet.I was out the door at 715.
Voting on my way home today. Have to comment on current results of poll (not a discussion of politics), I would have expected it to lean more heavily Republican on this forum. No offense meant, I love this site.
You sure it wasn't the line up for the Black Friday sales . . . it's after Halloween so the holiday sales must be starting up soon.
Hearth.com has nearly 24,000 members (granted nowhere near that number of "active" members, but that's the number, nonetheless). How many votes have been cast in this poll? What does that comprise in terms of percentage of the "population"? How representative would say this is, then?
I was in line over an hour at one in the afternoon. I was disappointed since for the first time my old Republican neighbor wasn't working the polls. I always loved asking her where I needed to go to fire a Republican.
My standard line when they ask if I am a registered Republican, Democrat or Other is to tell them that I am a registered Republican with some Democratic tendencies. . . . basically a true middle of the road type of guy that votes for the "best" candidate for the job regardless of party . . . only problem is I don't think we've had the "best" candidate run for a very, very long time . . . he or she is way, way too smart to even think about running for public office.
I was surprised that we got such a poor turnout for this hearth poll. lame. I certainly didn't expect all of the inactive members to come out of hiding, but I figured something like 125 votes. we only got about 65 as i post this.
Elementary elections are in per the principal's announcement.
Obama with 151
Romney with 138
just an FYI from a blue state.
Did my duty here as well. In and out in 5 minutes @ 3pm.
I voted for MR. JOHNSON on Halloween when I went to the town office to pay my property taxes before they start adding interest, so I didn't have to make a special trip and waste more gas.
The short answer is that the majority of the members come here for heating stuff. And never even look at the Nook or the Ash Can. Lord love'em.
5 mins at the most.
tru 'dat. And some of them are talking about hte election in the hearth room right now
I went and voted this evening.
Done here as well. Took the kids with us. Just like last year. Might as well teach them to vote.
