Well that is definately worse than my 2 hours in line to vote on Wednesday... but it was in the rain and I had left my umbrella at home. So I guess we are about even.

yep, gonna be a long long long wait for everyone. i think election day should be a national holiday...seriously...if we all find it important enough to make an attempt at choosing our leader shouldn't we have the luxury of not having to rush through our day to find time to contribute to our country's future?
i'm gonna be standing there tuesday morning waiting for the doors to open. just be prepared for more delays on waiting for the outcome.

just to clarify - i AM planning to vote. when i asked if it was a mistake to vote on nov 2, i meant was it a mistake to wait until the actual election day and not choose to do early voting. there's just something about the national day that appeals to me.

I usually prefer election day as well, but I was concerned about the wait on that day. Of course, one lady I was standing in line with pointed out, it will be very funny to watch on Tuesday as people walk right up to the polls with no waiting because everyone else has already voted... Oh well ~ at least I've got it out of the way. Happy voting everyone!

WOW--five and a half hours?!?!...here in little ole arkadel, i voted early...and didn't have to wait but for about 2 minutes. i struggled w/voting early, too--like jem, there's just something about doing it on the day of, but i thought i would try something new. :) i was glad i did...and i'm so sorry for your LONG WAIT(S)!!!

On the news tonight, they reported at 20% of registered voters in Pulaski County have voted already. I hope we have a good turn out tomorrow as well. Isn't this exciting???

3 hrs. 53 min. I don't ever want to wait in line that long again except to:

1. Get a lead role in a Richard Linklater film
2. See the Yankees beat the Red Sox
3. Get a date with Zhang Ziyi
4. Get a hug from Jesus when he returns or calls me home

(not particularly in that order)
