No politics, just a sincere wish for this to go smoothly and be OVER by tomorrow morning.

I do not want any more ads (omg! THE ADS!!) or court battles or anything..


Hope everyone has a good day, and if you haven't already voted - hope the lines are tolerable!

I, too, am looking forward to the elections being over.

I was at the polls at 6:30 this morning. Waited about an hour, was done by 7:30.

They were pretty inefficient getting people signed in. Hopefully that gets better as the day goes on.
There is nothing as sad as seeing people leave the line.

I am not sure I will be happy at the end of this day, but I will be happy with all of the politicing going away. I am not sure what your opinion is, but I got to the point when being called to go vote I told them I just changed my mind because you are invading my privacy. I just said this regardless.

We need somethiing to reign in all of this campaign spending. It is not just the Presidency, but the state races also. This amount of dollars being financed by PACs, or whatever, could go a long way for relieving our fellow citizens without jobs, etc. So I view it as a screw the little guy, we are aiming at the brass ring. Just my opinion.

Oh there will be court battles and accusations about the election being rigged. I will eat my shoe if I'm wrong.

There will also be weeks of commentary and political analyses on the election. That's only if the outcome is known the next day. Some folks are saying that it could take up to ten days to know the outcome.

But like you, I"ll be glad when the ads stop.

I haven't voted yet. I'm expecting it to be a zoo tonight. I'm bringing my kindle to keep myself occupied while I wait.

Just voted. Waited about 25 minutes. It was a quiet line with no shenanigans that I witnessed. With the world watching Ohio and virtually every major national and international news outlet in one part of this state or another, we couldn't have asked for better weather.

I was at the polling place about 9:00AM. Took less than a half hour to get through, and this was with 3 precincts in one room, causing confusion.

I was the last one to vote in my family as everyone else voted early. My daughter voted Sunday afternoon in Lebanon, took her 2-1/2 hours to get through. I was going to vote early on Monday but decided against it. Our regular polling place was a breeze.

I hope everyone who voted today has a good experience like mine.

No wait at all at my polling place. Noticed a young woman with a clipboard who was intently observing the poll workers as they checked voters in. The poll worker who checked my ID was saying to everyone "I have to make sure this isn't expired." Made me wonder if the Board of Elections is just being extra-diligent, or if she was from one of those organizations "working to prevent voter fraud," which since fraud is basically nonexistent, we all pretty much know what that's code for.

Meanwhile, could the Cincinnati Enquirer be any more pathetic? Its fake numbers - supposedly posted erroneously - earlier today briefly impacted the stock market.

Fake Election Stats Showed Romney Ahead in Ohio

The Cincinnati Enquirer committed a major election faux pas, posting dummy stats to its web site—ahead of election returns—showing that Republican Mitt Romney held a stunning 92,000-vote lead in the key presidential battleground of Ohio.
