I was in and out in 10 minutes. Chris went at 6am and waited in line for an hour. We only had one touch screen and there was a line so I did paper. BTW... The Obama rally last night was CRAZY!!! We had such a great time there!

I was # 6 in line at 5:25 am. By 5:45 I counted 80 people behind me! It was crazy indeed. But glad that part is over.

 

jacqueline - the soldiers generally do an absentee ballot.

I just got back from voting and am eating breakfast before heading out to work. Woo-hoo. I'm stuck at work all day and then class all night, so I'm going to have to get my election updates via cell phone.

I'm in a suburb of Dallas. I walked in, no wait and was done in about 5 minutes. Touch screens. It was super easy. Then I stopped for donuts....it just felt like the right thing to do!

 

My sticker says "my vote counted"

I voted this morning-in Philadelphia they open at 7-I got there at 6:55 and waited for an HOUR! I do think it is worth the wait but the problem is they were so unorganized. I guess that they did not expect this kind of turn out. It was nuts

I am glad to see so many people are patiently waiting in line to vote. Here in Canada, we had the worse voter turn out ever, and most ppl I know would never wait more than 20 mins to vote. Its sad.

Our generation has very little sense of civic responsibility.

 

I made my FI vote for the first time, and he is 31. His mom never encouraged him to do it, she voted for the first time at 40 years of age. It makes me sad.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
