    what ward are you in? we got there at 7:30 and had to wait over 2 hours - they were super organized, there was just SO many people!

        We have early voting here so I voted about a month ago. I am glad I voted early, but it kind of makes election day feel weird when you don't actually go to the polls. It's crazy to think after two years of election news it is almost over. I can't wait to watch the returns tonight.

            I voted this morning on my way to work. It took about 35 minutes total, not so bad. We fill in a bubble sheet and feed it through a counter machine. Nice technical terms, heh?! :). I believe voting is going smoothly here in MN! I cannot wait for tonight!!!

                I am going to vote after work, but I am leaving at 2pm to do it.

                Things are crazy here with Prop 8, lots of protests.

                I can't wait to vote, but I am very nervous about the outcome.

                  How many voting locations do you have? We have 261 precints just in my county, each one is different. Don't quote me on this, but I want to say that they established a voting location within walking distance, so that is why there are so many places.

                      I haven't voted yet but I plan to early this evening. I have never voted in this state as I was previously registered in FL.

                      I was talking to my mom last night who said she has never in her life voted! She is 56 years old! I couldn't believe it. She is not a US citizen although she has lived here legally since she was 20. She is a British citizen. I guess back them you had to be 21 to vote in the UK. She doesn't want to become a US citizen so I guess she'll never vote.
