Just one of millions making history today, but I still felt pretty fucking big.

U1 just called. She's going to the polls now. I am SO PROUD.

Rumor floating around that they won't let you into the polling place if you're wearing a candidate's t-shirt. I told her to take a sweater. I don't think she'd back off 100 feet and strip, but you never know.

Most places will let you turn it inside out, I think.

I don't know what number I was; I went after the lunch rush (Tolstoy in hand) and had four people in front of me waiting to check in.  No waiting for the dreaded touch-screen.

I work until 8, and I'm sure a provisional ballot would just wind up in the circular ballot box, but what the hell -- the polling station is just a couple of blocks from my house, so I'll see if it's still open after work.  If I'm already on the shit list, I'm already on it.

I drove by my polling place at seven minutes after opening and the line was impressive enough for me to keep driving.  I came in early so I can flex out after lunch to vote.

Me too.  The line was almost two blocks long.   :trance:

I figured I'd let the "before work" voters get it out of the way and then I went back at 10:30 before the "lunchtime workers" rushed the place again.

In and out in fifteen minutes.  Wooo!

I voted by mail, but I'm going to drive by my polling place at lunch just to see.

You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

Missouri doesn't have early voting.  My Kansan friends all voted last week to avoid the mob.

We were there at 6:54 am, six minutes before opening.  We were #16 and #17 in line.  She ended up being #16 while I tried to contain the monster and I let four other people go to the open booths while Sandy voted.  I then swapped the kid for the booth when she vacated.  So I guess I was #21.  And the dealer busts....

Did the dirty deed after wife got home. The green table (ours) had about 20 people in queue, while the orange table had none.

Then came home and had to fix her computer's internet connection so we could look at results.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.
