Are you voting this cycle and if not, why not?

Haven't missed and election since 1976. Although AWA has accused me of wasting a vote or two.

Yeah. I have to drive an hour to get home from college, but I'll make the trip. I always get out to vote.

My two older kids get on the bus in ten minutes. The littlest one and I will be leaving for the polls about five minutes after the school bus leaves our neighborhood.

I'm going to try to get to the polls after work. I had to cover the early shift, so they weren't open before I came in. I *want* to vote, I just hope I can get there in time.

If you live in Ohio, I'd just like to pimp the "No on 4, Yes on 5" vote, although I have a feeling that Issue 5 is going to go down.

Yes, but sadly most of the important votes I will be casting are more on the "against" someone, as opposed to the "for" someone side of things...

I voted at 7:15 this morning. It is sad that when we get 50% of eligible voters to actually vote, we think it is good. We don't all take this as seriously as we should.

Also - it was the first time I had ever seen my own name on a ballot before. It was pretty cool. And the fact that I was running unopposed nearly secures victory!

What are you running from ? I mean For ?

and why didn't we all know this earlier so we could have helped sling mud at your non-existent opponent ?

Already voted and was from the car to the polls back to the car in under 3 minutes, and that is in a state with a close Senate, Governor's and Ballot Question. This draw the line to connect the arrow voting is really tough to screw up.
If you want anectodal evidence of voter turnout: Went at the same time on primary day and the machine I feed my ballot into was around 70. Today it was at 220.

Voted around 9:00am and was #225. I keep hearing that Rick Perry (R) will keep his job as Governor, but one of his opponents is Kinky Friedman (I). I would love to have a Gov. Kinky.

Kinky Friedman is insane. And an idiot. Perry's gonna keep his job, but Bell will be close. Kinky doesn't stand a chance, and rightfully so.

I mailed my absentee ballot to Florida a week ago; it's up to the state now as to whether or not I actually voted.

I've voted in every primary/general election since I turned 18, including two completely meaningless presidential primaries (I think my choices in 2004 were Kerry or Kucinich by that point - I voted for Dean anyway), so damn doubly, hell, triply sure made it out to vote for Casey (or, to be more realistic about it, to vote against Santorum).

I got there about 10:00, I was #79. It's a comparatively small precinct so that's actually pretty good.


Now, with these new-fangled electronic voting machines, the real question should be "Did It Count?".

I will vote tonight when I get home from work. The nice thing is my job either lets you come in 1 hour late or leave 1 hour early to vote. A no brainer there - go to take the elave early option!

I am running opposed for a third term on the Budget Committee for the Town of China. I tend to be the voice of reason on the committee of seven, six of whom are usually bitching that we spend too much money and those pesky kids don't need new books, they were fine for me when they were written in 1956.

I was #24 on the voting machine counter.

I voted a little bit later than originally planned because somebody really wanted a nap. I ended up voting at about 12:15. Turnout at our precinct was really high. I had to wait for about 15 minutes to vote which is by far the longest I've ever had to wait at this precinct. I was voter number 471 in our precinct which means, IIRC, that turnout in our precinct is already higher than it was in the last midterm election. I don't know what that means or who it favors, but it's certainly an interesting anecdotal piece of evidence.

Here's another one: When I was in high school, the two dominant football schools in the county were Palm Bay High and Rockledge High. Every year, the two teams opened the season against each other in a game that regularly draws like 12,000 fans.
