This thread will be a hodge podge of election day comments. I have gotten 7 emails asking for it, so here it is. Please let us know which polling sites are crowded, how long the lines are, etc.

    Oh,the demands of the public! 😉

    “I’ve gotten 7emails.” This sure sounds like words I’ve heard before on another local blog about the study circles.

    Yup, the public is demanding. Those rascals. Saves me from thinking.

    Elena has the main event covered! Nice job Elena. The pic just added was from Diversity Gal.


    Repeat from earlier on another thread, but Westgate’s line was nothing at all like year’s past. I would not be surprised at all to find out that a minimum of 20 x if not 50 x more voters turned out today at that polling place than usual. I have voted there for about 3 years now (before that at a church on Plantation) and I have gone early each time and I never had more than 8 to 10 people in front of me. Today…at least 200, maybe even 300.

    My husband just got back from SMS and was #270, he said there was about 70 people in line at 9:30. The whole thing only took about 20 minutes including travel time. I’ve never waited more than 45 minutes to vote there. I will be going a little later and update all.

  5. Censored bybvbl

    I felt as though I’d walked into the Twilight Zone at Woodbine – there was only one voter ahead of me at my table and probably fewer than 30 in the voting area. The last time I voted there during a national election, I had about a thirty minute wait. I always go between 9:30 and 10:30 so that I miss the morning rush and the lunch crunch.

  6. Poor Richard

    Voted in less than twenty minutes at Metz in Manassas at 11 (voter 398) –
    but understand there were crowds early and assume there will be again later
    as people return from work.

    Amazed to see so many groups of teenagers waving Obama/Biden signs at
    major intersections in Manassas City.

    Fired up — Ready to WIN!

    The young people really are involved this time, aren’t they! Pretty smart. Young people want change and most do not want war (since the young are always the cannon fodder).

  8. Firedancer

    Thanks to all the people who voted early. I just voted at 12:30 and there was no line. Unbelievable!

  9. Chris

    I voted about 11:30 at SMS and was voter#486. There was no line, and no complaining. Everyone was pleasant, and they were asking people to take a survey. My mother and I declined so I don’t know what it was about. Did any other precincts have surveys?

    I remained undecided until I got in front of the screen. Please, everyone get out and vote!

  10. ISO Decency

    I won’t mention the person by name. However, she has written a very decent couple of paragraphs about how kids should treat other people. Oddly enough, this is on the BVBL blog under the OHS Walk for Remembrance Thread.

    I say oddly enough because of repeated bullying behavior exhibited by some of the regulars on BVBL Blog. It would be nice if the regulars on BVBL blog would read Miss E’s words and take them to heart. I hope she practices what she preaches. Her words are beautiful, her behavior hasn’t always been. Those regulars glazed right over what she said and continued to attack someone who offered an alternate opinion.

    Anti is known to not rip off your words here if the owner doesn’t like them. So I will post here. Shame on those bullies!

  11. El Guapo

    We went to Parkside Middle School at 5:30 pm. No line. A crowd of bored to death activists outside. We voted. Then in accordance with tradition I changed the “VO” to “FAR” on my “I Voted” sticker.

    We heard that Chick fil A was giving out free chicken sandwiches to anyone with an “I Voted” sticker so we went there. They gave me a chicken sandwich even though my sticker was altered.

  12. ISO Decency

    I see that the black velvets are still victimizing a single individual on the dark screen over on the open thread. Perhaps this is to take their limited minds off of the severe ass kicking they took yesterday in the election. I am reminded of jackals, circling their prey.

    In one breath one of them describes the warm fuzzy Kumbaya feeling she got at some walk and then takes out after an individual who had another opinion. Un.Be.Lievable.
