Got out of my car, said hello to all the people giving out voting advice. Joked with a couple of them. Went inside and was told about the ballot by a lady at the door. Went over and gave my name, address and received a ballot. Filled it out and took it to the counter. I love our paper trail.

It was somewhere between 11:30 and 1:30. Everybody was in a good mood with both parties talking to each other outside. Sometimes that can get a little tense. It was a classy bunch this year. Hope it continues that way throughout the day.

Only problem was the weather. It has started a sprinkle rain and it was cold. Snow was mentioned, but never happened. Cleared up as soon as I finished and started on my shopping trip. I am snug back at home with lots of good food ready to watch the returns.

I am about 25 miles outside Charlotte the way the crow flies.

Voted around 2:00 in a precinct in Manhattan that didn't have power until Saturday. Went very smoothy; no line at all. It was a one-page paper ballot fed into an optical scanner. Took less than 10 minutes.

Got to my polling place - local elementary school and the parking lot was close to full at about 11:30 this morning. I'd say there were about 30 to 40 people in the line and 4 booths. Only 2 extra measures on the ballot.

This is my second time voting here in a presidential election and the crowd was much bigger this time.

As I walked across the parking lot a guy ahead of me greeted someone he knew and the other guy said "Gotta git that N***a outta OUR White house."

I did not have a long wait at all, but I live on a coastal island and I also went at 3:00 which is usually a non-busy time.

I voted at 6:45 a.m. in Chicago. It was easy, because I vote in the lobby of the building where I live. Maybe 150 registered voters. about 40 voted before I did. That's a large number, considering there are a lot of old people in my building who vote mid-day, typically. Our ballot was long, because of more than 100 judicial candidates. It took me about 15-20 minutes start to finish.

I would hate to be in the voting after work crowd. That's why I drag my butt out of bed and go early every election day. Ya, I could vote early or by mail, but there's something about actually going to the poll on election day that I love. Plus they give you a sticker!
Got to the polling place about 12:30, voted at about 1:30. Surprisingly quick.
I'm not a morning person, props to those who waited in line at 7am. I couldn't do it.
