25-35 mins. I has been MUCH longer in the past where people had to get into the line according to the first letter in their last name. Not this time, 6 people serviced the entire line and it moved pretty good. It was just LONG.
When I finished up, around 11am, I glanced back at the line and it was a tad longer then when I jumped in.

Sandal wearing hippie in line: "Two hours! Isn't it great? Isn't it wonderful? Isn't it fantastic?"
FUCK NO IT AIN'T. This is the twenty-first century, people - there's GOT to be a better way to get people in, voting, and out.
I lol'd when I read that because I had a similar experience. I was trying to vote on my lunch break and it was taking FOREVER. Instead of hippies, though, my annoying people in front of me were blue-hairs. I would have rather had hippies.
Oh, and I don't like touch screen voting. I prefer the 'ker-chunk' of the lever. It made it feel more important.
"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.
About an hour at about 830a in Brooklyn. I was in and out during the midterms in 06.
I'm excited that there are that many people voting, but there's got to be a better way to handle the handling part. People were doing what they had to to make sure they voted, but eight-hour lines in predominantly poorer districts is a poll tax in sheep's clothing.
I generally vote for someone who lives near me. I mean, I found it hilarious that during one election, one of the candidates running for our local provincial representation didn't actually live in the area. Huh.
