Four more years

I arrived at 6:00. Was about 50th in line. Voting started at 6:30. By that time I would extimate 300 people in line. I left at 6:45. It was a blast, almost a rally atmosphere.

Arrived at 6am and we voted at 6:05

+2 for GWB!

I think we are.
10 min. and I was challenged --- can you believe it...

The poll people said they could not find my name --- been voting in the same place every election for the past 20 years.

they got it squared away in a short though.

I got to the polls at 6:30am voted, went to Micky D's and came home all within an hour.

Oh yea +1 for W.

Got there at 6:50 and voted at about 7:15. Wasn't too bad but I'm worried about our state going ot the electronic voting. Some people are taking the cards with them and those are their ballots! No signs or anything to explain the new system. Potential CF in MD!

Got in line around 6:20 and got out of there around 7:55

Got to the polling place at 6:05 and there were at least 100 people ahead of me. Took about 35 minutes
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 3:02:53 AM EST
Got in line at 0650, voted at 0740, home by 0750.

1+ for Bush.

Keep the faith.

mine was about 10 minutes wait. got outta the poles by 6:04 am
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 3:03:37 AM EST
I got there 5 minutes after the polls opened and the line was down the hall. I got the last parking spot. There were at least 40 people ahead of me. One of the poll workers said she'd never seen a turnout like it. My wife went to vote an hour later and the lot was filled up and no places were open along the curb. The line was even longer. We've already had employees calling in late to work because of long lines into the polls. It's raining here in Indianapolis. That usually means good luck for Republicans because Democrats don't want to go out in the rain. They're afraid they'll float away. This could be a record turn out.

Polls open here at 7 AM. I got there at about 7:02, and the line was already out to the street - probably 50 or 60 people. There's something beautiful about that. It almost made me tear up. I came out of the building about 7:35. Oh, and the Marxists can stuff their early voting charade up their asses. There are plenty of real citizens out voting today.

In line at 6:50, voted at 7:08.

We're already electronic, but people were having trouble pushing the right spot.

Here's what they look like where I vote:

ETA: No, the red arrow wasn't there. Maybe I should have brought a magic marker....
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 3:19:31 AM EST
Well, I did stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for the polls to open. But I was FIRST !
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 3:29:34 AM EST
I had planned to get there early but didn't arrive until 7:30 or so. Still, only about a five minute wait.

In at 0612, out at 0617.

Stood iln line for 20 minutes, after a 15 minute drive to find a parking spot.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 4:26:51 AM EST
About 45 min. Would have been longer but the rain scared some people away.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 4:29:45 AM EST
About 3 min, including "signing in" I was the only one there. (aside from the volenteers)
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 4:31:14 AM EST
Took just about 15 minutes. Definitely the busiest I have ever seen it and I have been voting at the polling place since 1985 (voted by absentee before then due to being a student). Also, instead of having two voting machines we only had one this time which added to the chaos.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 4:31:47 AM EST
arrived 0645. polls opened at 0700. voted at 0730.

frankly, i like long lines. they discourage the mtv crowd.

11 minutes.

About an hour here
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 4:54:06 AM EST
Polls opened at 7:00, I got there at 7:30 and there were about 50 people in line. This is my third election at this polling place, and I've never seen more than 2 or 3 people in line. Interestingly, I was voter number 152 (same number as my LEGP and SEBR rifles!)
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:01:38 AM EST

Took about 35 minutes.

There were 3 lines, based on first letter of one's last name. It seemed 90% of the people there were in my line...

Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:01:58 AM EST

they discourage the mtv crowd.

Like they have anything better to do. In my opinion, it more greatly discourages people who work. I only had two hours off of work this morning to vote, and I didn't even make it in the building. It was about a 15 minute drive each way plus a 90 minute wait. From counting the people in front of me and assuming another black church bus didn't pull-up, it would have taken another 45 minutes to get to vote.

That leads to the question of why did the poll only go up to 60 minutes? I haven't talked to anyone yet that didn't wait at least 45 minutes.z
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:06:00 AM EST
I was the first in my precinct.
In the door at exactly 6am and out the door at 6:04am.
Not bad. Kudos to all the people behind me who had to stand in the rain.
Voting for Bush or Kerry, at least they bucked a little rain to perform their civic duty.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:17:42 AM EST
Took kids to school at 7:30am.
Picked up the wife and drove a block to polling station 7:50am.
Started punching paper ballot 8:00am.
Checked for hanging chads 8:07am.
Back home posting on ARFCOM 8:20am.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:18:38 AM EST
hell of a long line here in Mesa, AZ. Got off work at 6:15AM got to the gate at 6:25AM ( long ass walk to the friggin' gate ) and hit the line for thepolls at 6:40AM. LOTS AND LOTS of hardcore Americans standing in a REALLY long line to vote in my precinct and the one down the street. It was GREAT to see so many folks voting. Lots were calling in to work on their cell phones telling their workplaces that they were gonna be late. I liked that!!!!

Anyway, I didn't get home until 8:05AM, took forever to get through the line...the Partisan section of the ballot was a breeze but what held folks up was the Non-Partisan section for all of the Court offices. THAT TOOK FOREVER.

Well, go GWB!!!!

Longest lines I ever saw also.Outside the right to vote people were trying to give people encouragement to vote kerrykommie.They were pretty loud.....I walked by them.I dislike dims intensly.

I was 18th voter in my precinct, and it took me 30 min. The pole workers were really not ready for the line that formed. My wife went in to vote a half hour after me and it took here 45 min. She was vote 50 something. The turn out is already past the turn out for then entire primary vote. Looks like we may get a record turn out in my precinct. I hope a record nation wide.

Took about 35 minutes from the time I steped ion line until I walked out the door.

They only had 4 voting stations and alot of old people couldn't figure out how to color in an oval with a pen.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:37:02 AM EST
No line at all. I was done in less than 10 min.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:39:10 AM EST

Took about one hour to vote... Quite a few people walked away when they saw the line, and I swear one college age girl said, 'I'm not waiting in this line! Kerry will just win without me'...

She walked away... I smiled big time and cast my vote for every Republican on the ballot...

Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:42:19 AM EST
walked in - took 2-3 minutes to get through the sign-in - and about 10 minutes for me to fill in all the ovals.

Easy Peasy!
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 5:45:13 AM EST
18 minutes from entrance to exit.

The poll workers were less than 100 years old for a change.

2.5 hours

the wife, and 2 hot chicks we met in line - all voted Bush.

Now the 2 liberal morons behind us were for sKerry, and I had to listen to their babble for 2 1/2 hours!
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 7:17:10 AM EST
It took me just over two hours, and I had to listen to ultra liberals bashing Bush the whole time.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 8:03:14 AM EST
We were seeing 1+ hour lines during _early_ voting in the Dallas area. It's raining today. I didn't check out the lines when I drove past the polling places this morn.

For early voting, the percentage of registered voters was very high around here. Of the four counties mentioned on the news, this was the turnout:
Dallas 22%
Tarrant 33%
Denton 36%
Collin 41%
For those of you who don't know the area, the last three are HEAVY Republican.

BTW, it took me 45 min in early voting. I couldn't find a parking place the first time I went. The following morning ... still very few spots.
