I was in line at 0510, checked-in, voted, and back out the door in an hour, total. The line when I left was down the side of the building, doubled-back, and down the parking lot past the front entrance. I've NEVER seen a turnout like this! So freaking awesome!

way to vote!! you vote in VA, right? that is an important state for obama to win, so every vote counts. i was surprised at how long the line was too. i live in a low populated area and didn't expect so many people to turn out. it is exciting. i am just hoping that this will not be another gore style election. i hope the winner actually wins.

Yeah, I think VA is considered a "battleground" state this time. My area is definitely rural, but I think there are only 5-6 polling places for the county.

Isn't this an amazing day? I can feel the electricity - and I feel hope, which I didn't in 2000 and 2004.

Change is coming!!!

HEY! Thanks for popping by! Feel free to do so whenever!

Seriously, I normally only see maybe 30 people at a time when I vote, and I vote at the same time of day every time. This morning was un-freaking-real. I was tempted to ask the elderly woman in line near me to hold my spot so I could run down the line and count everybody - I figure there were at least 150 in line when I left at about 6:15 (our polls open at 6:00 here in the Old Dominion).

Good for you! :-)
I'm glad I voted last week. With being sick and missing two days of work, there's no way I could have voted today and tonight will be CRAZY.
