    woke up to radio reports of long lines, and democrating activists screaming about not enough poll observers being present.

    Funny, when I was a poll observer during the 04 presidential election, the libs filed a lawsuit to keep observers out.. ( at least the republican ones)..interestingly, I was stationed at an inner city precinct, where the most monkey business was supposed to occur.. the only people who got out of line were the democrat activists doing all the yelling.. just like the islamists who cry "torture" when there isn't any, I guess claiming " voter fraud" is the only way these clowns can garner public sympathy..

    and another thing.. people will stand in line forever to go see a ballgame, or buy concert tickets and they survive, but somehow it's the end of democracy when you have to wait more than 10 minutes to cast a ballot.

    but I digress.. I was in & out in about 20 minutes, the electronic machines worked nicely, and the poll workers seemed on top of things.. they even asked for ID.

    Of course, I'm sure by the time the lawsuits are finished, we'll announce all winners by christmas. :p:

    This was a strange ballot we had.. one initiative banned smoking in public places, and anoter initiative was a tobacco tax to fund the arts, while yet another limited public smoking to just a few types of establishments.. nothing like confusing the voting public.. I voted no on all three.. better luck next time.


    Post up your voting experience.. I'm curious what goes on in other places.

    Mine was cake, in and out in 10 minutes. The funny thing at the place I vote was the lack of republican presence, only democrats there handing out the sample ballot, no biggie, just smiled, said thanks and vote the oposite of what theirs said.

    Mine was nice and quick, I would say in and out in less than 5 minutes. No one around my area has any excuse for not voting if it was that easy. And it's always been that easy for me, they have their stuff together at the polls here.

    I voted Not Hillary. :p: :p:

    Took me about 20 minutes total. Our ballot was 4 pages this year. It was nice, they gave everyone a choice "electronic or paper?"

    Paper please!

    15 mins with electronic voting. Really nice and easy. We had to vote whether or not to allow same sex marriages and state congress wanted more days off and more money and soc ofcourse.

    Polling place is only 2 blocks from my house and usually deserted on voting day, but today there was one person in front of me. Was not required to present ID and got racially profiled on the way out. I got my "I voted" sticker handed to me and put it on like I usually do. Didn't realize what it said til I got to work :crazy:

    Ours was absentee only this year, for the first time. Also my first time being able to vote. Cake. Took about five minutes. I only voted on the initiatives, since I don't know **** about our candidates other than all the BS that flies around.

    all our voting is by mail.. did it a couple of weeks ago.

    No way I could tolerate bumping into a bunch of terrorist/dictator-loving, coffee drinkin', pot smokin' lefto-communists at the polls. **** that. I deal with those clowns enough on my mass transit commute.

    Same here, quick & easy paper balloting but we voted a week early. Apparently down in Denver way they had some serious problems.

    We had amendments for Man/Woman marriage only, civil unions, tax on local hotels to support tourism, requirements for school expenditures and opt out for the same, tax increase for police/firefighters, et, et, et. Lot of ballot initiatives this year.

    No extremist Republicans hanging from poles throwing poo & foaming at the mouth this year. How's that for balance.
