Where are the lines?
I thought voter turnout was going to be huge?
No line here. I walked in, voted, walked out.
I registered to vote via mail. Yes, they did ask me for ID. However, my ID is from Michigan, not Virginia. They accepted my voter registration card as proof of residency ... you know, the one I got through the mail with no proof of residency. I was prepared. I had every kind of legal document proving identity and residency that you could hope for. I was hoping they'd ask for some.
At least they asked for my ID.
I was pleased that they offered a choice between electronic voting and a paper ballot. I went with the paper.
This was a very odd election, in that it's the closest I've ever come to voting a straight ticket. Weird. One lone Independent for Representative spared me from that indignity. But my vote for McCain/Palin has been cast.

We had long lines for early voting here. I don't know about today yet. I don't want to watch the news to see.

Same here. Around here, I knew that it was spitting into the ocean, but hey, it's my only voice! Stood in line for almost an hour. But it was still worth it.

Sometimes, you just have to spit.
