Historically, Democrats don't get out and vote until later in the day. Thats because Republican voters can find time during the day, small business owners, etc. Most Democratic support are hourly employees who vote after 4/5PM when their shifts end.

Republicans will vote once they get off work.

It's interesting to read the voter turnout thread in the Nova forum. Sounds like a lot of people are voting this year. Which is a nice change--I can remember years when voter turnout was pathetic.

I don't really care which side wins since I figure the winner won't be able to get anything done anyway. But I'm actually getting a little excited seeing this big turnout--I figure the big winner today is our political system in general, because people voted. Also, the local media cleaned up selling all those political ads.

And starting tomorrow--I'm a winner because those ads finally go away. Never thought I'd miss those viagra ads...

Still, I think missouri is still going to vote Romney. This is the state that elected Akin.

Big if
Yes.... but.... not as early as you might think because they take a good long time counting the votes in Virginia. Especially in my county, Loudoun, which always seems to be one of the last ones in. I doubt VA will be counted before midnight this time around.

Maybe, just thinking that the early exit polls will be out around 8, with some more definitive numbers by 9.

Hey, its your state, you know it better then me.

I can say this, in Tennessee there were a lot more people at the poll at 1PM this afternoon then I expected, although the one lady said that the E-K group were rather short on the vote today

Often, they are just sour grapes.
