I voted!


Most important thing to do today: Vote.

Hubby and I lined up at our polling place at 6:15 a.m. and were done voting by 7:15 a.m.

How long was your wait? Pin It

    Sharon,
    I voted early last week on the last day you could early vote in Illinois. It was an impulse decision. My daughter is off school today and I didn't want her to have to stand in line with me if it would be more than an hour. Now I wish I'd waited...I miss being in on the excitement! I also miss voting in the old-fashioned type of elections booth, with the lever to close the curtains, the little levers to make your choice, and then the finality of pulling that big lever to confirm your choices. It felt weighty, as votiong should. Touch screens just don't cut it. I hope everyone manages to get to the polls today!

  3. I went at 10:30 and there was no line and only a few people in the little booths voting. The guy behind me had to wait as I signed my name but that was it.

    It was a bit anti-climatic, honestly, with the giant scantron-like ballot, sharpie marker to fill in the bubbles, and little flimsy stand-up booths without any curtains but, hey, my vote counts all the same!

  4. I voted by mail! I totally do not miss those lines, and love the time to study the ballot and its choices.

    BTW, I surely love your b/w knit dress. Lovely on you!

  5. 2 hours start to finish!! And they were telling people in the very long lines behind me at least another hour!

    I think it's because I was in that morning rush before work!

  10. The line at 7:00 was out the door and starting down the block, so I decided to take my chances this evening. It was a good bet. Less that 10 minutes from my car to vote and back. And part of that time was spent just chatting...

  13. I worked the polls, therefore arriving at 5:45 a.m. and getting home at 8:45 p.m.

    The longest anyone had to wait in line at my precinct was 45 minutes. After 10:00 a.m., the longest wait we had was 15 minutes at one other point. The majority of voters took longer to vote (the Scantron type ballot) than tthe time they stood in line.
