TODAY IS THE DAY

After about two months of seeing this forum discuss, bicker and get downright nasty over the election, today is the day we should put the partisanship aside and celebrate the freedoms that make this a great country by voting our conscience. No matter how you will vote, the important thing is getting out there and doing it. The right to vote in a free election is something that over 1/2 the world can only dream about.

PLEASE vote.

Amen.

I trust this means your vote is in for mayor of Rabbit Hash.

I voted 12 times for the 3 legged dog. And once for Obama.

My supervisor surprised us all this morning and said that we were all welcome to take up to 2 1/2 hours ON THE CLOCK to go vote. That never happens! Just my luck, there was not anyone else in line and the whole process took about 3 minutes. After seeing some of the long lines on TV, I guess I am truly one of the lucky ones.

Voting in my city was moved from the schools to the county fairgrounds. (2 buildings) I drove by at 9 AM and the parking area looked like a Springsteen concert. I don't know who's brainstorm that was but it made no sense. Two small buildings for a city of 25,000?? Well. I started voting absentee ballot 2 years ago. One of my better ideas.

My wife and I were in and out in less than ten minutes and there were six pages of selections for judges. Electronic voting is great.

It only took us about 10 minutes also. My three sons went altogether and had no wait either. My tear off ballot was in the high 6K numbers. It's usually about 300. Nice to see people exercising their civic duty.

I voted around 1pm -- they had tallied 380 voters so far, a record number of votes for our small village area!

Just a curiosity:

I heard that 68% of all registered voters will actually vote.

Why would 32% register but not go through with voting?

And what percentage of people who are eligible to vote actually went through with registering?

I wonder if any elections would go vastly different if 100% of everyone who could vote did register and vote?
