I VOTED - DID YOU? Please take my poll! [Nov. 4th, 2008|10:43 am]

In the Queens NYC location I go to, there are 9 EDs and two of them have two
machines. Mine, the ED.39th in AD.25 has only one.

I got there at about 9:10AM and there was a small line of about 3-4 people waiting to use the machine and one person on line to "checking-in". When I left the line to use the machine was about 5 people and the waiting to "checking" line had 6 people. I also noted that I was the 140 person to vote in my ED. And the other ED in the place had lines about the size as my ed had when I left. Overall a big turnout.

I haven't voted yet, but plan to later this afternoon/early evening. Even though I live in a semi-rural area there has been snippets of news about lines outside of polling places where there have never -been- lines before.

Certainly something interesting is happening.

C and I voted at our local polling place, her # was 305 and mine was 306. According to the ladies doing the books, there were times mid-morning when there were several people waiting in line, but for the most part it was all orderly, as it tends to be in our town. As I recall from 2004, our numbers were more in the late 100's and that was 6-7pm that evening, so turnout seems to be a bit heavier this year. There was only one election observer manning the machine, a Republican. I didn't see any postings near the polling place and only a couple of people were trickling in as C and I were leaving.

I was in and out of there in under 10 min. I got up early for that? I would have slept in ;-)

I'm amazed to see so many gay/sex issues on the ballots in other states. I only heard about the one in CA.

I think it took me about the same amount of time. In NY the machines might be old. but they are easy to use and takes only about 1-2 mins to cast your votes for all the candidates.

On Same-gender issues around the USA, I already posted about it. There are three that I know of .....
Proposition 8 in California,
Constitutional Amendment #2 in Florida and
Proposition 102 in Arizona.
BTW I called my Mom in Florida who already voted via Absentee Voting but she say that she voted NO on Amendment #2 [go MOM!]


GO OBAMA!!
