Default Went to Vote Early Today........

...........and the traffic just to get into the parking lot at the Oklahoma County voter office in OKC stretched a mile down the street! Early voting began Friday, continued Saturday and today. Every day the lines were looooooooong. I'll be heading to my local precinct tomorrow. Might have to wait in line there too, but it's closer to home.

Something tells me most of these early voters were not McCain supporters.

Check out the pics:

Thumbs down Re: Went to Vote Early Today........

The wife and I voted absentee last week. She goes in for surgery tomorrow, so we won't be available.


Probably won't get counted, but, the morons of Madison and Milwaukee will make this a BO state anyway.

I don't have to worry about voting in actuality. I WILL, but our votes will go to McCain so it's irrelevant.

The polls opened in VA at 6AM. My wife was there at 6:05. There were about 50 people in line in front of her. Took about 20 minutes total. I voted absentee last week.

My wife and I voted this morning. We got there about 15 minutes before the polls opened at 7:00 and we were out of there by 7:30 so it wasn't too bad of a wait.

I was planning to vote on the way to work, but elected to stay in bed and get some more much needed sleep. My Polling place is at a church in the country 5 miles straight east of my house. I will run over there and vote as soon as I get home from work tonight.

ditto here on that! we'll stop on the way home - I generally average about 20 minutes total from parking to pulling out of the drive at the community center.

We drove the 31 miles one way to our local polling place and cast our ballots after our morning outing hunting the big bull elk. Our county and state can not even field Democrat candidates in many positions. This leaves us with either a right-in or just mark the ballot for the usual Republican. I must admit this is one year I did go straight on the party line as any other offerings were about like the national front runner for the Dems. No substance and positions on policy that go directly against my conservative views......................

I can only wish the best for whoever wins and hope that they can right the sinking ship asap............... as whatever is done is done for now!!!

I am just too old to riot in the streets. Our local law enforcement will shoot looters and rioters unlike in Chicago or LA where they give them a medal.
