I found this out by accident the other day and was pretty amazed that I havn't seen one commercial or flyer or anything letting people know this option is available.

What gives?
I just learned about it the other day...I will be going tomorrow to cast my vote...it looks like I'll have to go a little father out (Glendale) but it'll be worth it!

My bf didn't mail his in either. Can't you walk it in and drop it off on election day? That's what I told him to do. I always see people do that while I wait in line.

Nope, not kidding. They expect the lines to be as long or longer today. Lots of people saw the lines yesterday and said they'll come back today. Good luck!

I saw it with my own 2 eyes today in Glendale. There were at least 300 people from what I saw. I spoke to a woman who was in line with the rest of her family, she said there were about 200 people in front of her and probably about another 200 or more behind her!

I'm hoping the line will be better on Tuesday, since all the ballots will be the same at the polling place, no waiting until they print out.

I'm going to take my chance on Tuesday, maybe take the day off it it takes too long.

This is truly amazing & inspiring!

Yes, you can walk up and drop it off in person, either today (by 5pm) or on Tuesday. You don't have to wait in line...just walk up drop it off. I actually did this yesterday with my mail-in ballot at the Glendale voting location.

If you haven't mailed it in...DON'T. You have to drop it off in person as it's too late for the mail, it won't get there in time and won't be counted.

I voted today, because I was afraid I wouldn't manage it on Tuesday, when I have less time available. I went in at 10:30, stood in line for about an hour, and was given a number: 586. When I was directed to the main voting area, I discovered that those currently voting had numbers around 100.

I waited another hour or so, and they only made it up to 150. They told us we could leave, but only as long as we had filled out a ballot form and came back before 5 pm. You have to do everything in the same way, so if you decided not to return your only choice was to come back another day and start over from the beginning, or wait until Tuesday and hope for the best.

I finally cast my ballot around 7:30 pm. And I got off fairly easy: I ran into one woman who said her number was 1100. She's probably still there, waiting to vote.
