What time do you plan on going and why?


I have the day off tommorrow so I will go around 8:30
we have had very long lines here in Atlanta and I fully expect to be there awhile, at least I hope so
I think everyone should vote, there really is no excuse not to.
I hate it when I go vote for a state election and the polling place is empty.
Go, have fun!!

Two weeks ago today! I couldn't stand not having it done and went the first day I could.

Good luck tomorrow! Since you're in a rural area it shouldn't be too crowded.

I live across the street from the polls so I can go anytime I see a break in the lines, but I will probably get in line before 7 AM. If some first time voters see long lines they might just say forget it.

I voted 10 days ago. Oregon uses a mail in ballot system, the only state that does. The ballots are sent out about 2 or 3 weeks before the Nov 4th election.

7:30 I'm meeting a friend for breakfast and then I work at 11a, so it's the only time I can fit in and guarantee plenty of time to vote. I suspect the turnout will be huge.
