    Our polls opened about a half hour ago, and I'm headed out to vote before heading to the campus. I'll have to post how long it took me later.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    It was funny listening to a woman on the morning NYC news complaining about waiting a half hour to vote on the upper East Side while in other parts of the city people are waiting hours after losing everything.

    I said you need to strive to better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the try.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    I tried to vote this morning. Took me about 10 min to find parking and then it was an hour wait. It was already 8:30- throw in the drive and I wouldn't have gotten to work until 10. And I had a conf call at 9:30.

    So, looks like I have to go back on my way home. *sigh.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    I voted at 7 AM (Up early, since I usually sleep until 9 but I was too fired up & ready to go) there were 3 voters in there & one was done & was talking to the people signing us in and giving us the voting sheets. Took a couple of minutes. I checked & in my suburban town we have 31 districts with 21 polling places. Those include places like churches, schools, firehouses & libraries. There's even one place in an apartment complex. Why can't it be that way in states like Ohio & Florida where people are waiting virtually a complete work day to vote? When I see the long lines on the news, all I can say is : I Love NY.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    Voting opened at 7 and the polling place is probably a half mile from our house, maybe slightly more. I should have gotten there right at 7 but I just can't get my lazy ass up that early.

    I knew these referendums were going to screw up the process here.

    Here is the sample ballot, 12 ****ing pages:

    I voted in Denver County today at around 8:00 AM and there was only one person in front of me. I was in and out in about 10 minutes.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    waited over an hour. but nyc is different this year. you can essentially vote whereever you want since you've most likely been displaced. everything goes through a affadavit position.

    Presidential elections have always had long lines in NYC. 2008 i wanted an hour. this year i waited longer. and the scanners went down...and some of hte workers were bickering with each other. very stressful election for some.

    Funny how people will bitch about waiting in a line for 30 minutes to vote, yet have no problem camping outside over night for a phone...

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    took 15 minutes, but that was because i was making sure i was reading the proposals at the end right.

    last night, a girl knocked on my door and said "please vote for my mom so she can keep her job." and handed me a pamphlet. i thought to myself.. what a load of bull****. using your kid like that. but i wished her and her dad who was with her best of luck in the elections. i called my mom and told her the story. my mom told me that the family may lose their house, and that was desperation by them to pull at your heart strings like that. i went through the ballot and voted for her first. im a pussy like that.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    No line where I voted. I hate the paper ballots though. The old automatic voting machines were so much easier. Plus, my father-in-law made them.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    A wise man doesn't waste effort telling the world he's wise. If it's true, it will be self-evident.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    No wait, except for the bitchy poll worker who made me listen to her instructions about how it was illegal to have your cell phone on while voting, which it is not by the way.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    I voted about 7:30. No wait at all, except when they made let them look up my address to make sure I was voting at the table (two districts in my polling place) only to find out that after 16 years I do, in fact, know that I vote at 2-7.

    I plan on voting again after work and see if there is a wait that time.

    Re: Do you wait in line to vote?

    Myself, wife and oldest son walked in and out in about five minutes. No wait, right to the district table, to the desk, to the booth and out. I have to go to a different location now, about 10 minutes down the road, after they folded the old one that was one minute around the corner.

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.
