I really don't want to go before work, and I'm pretty sure the lines will be atrocious at 5pm. I vote at a school, so I'd like to miss the after school traffic as well. I'm thinking 2pm?

Do you get paid for that? or are you freelancing?

For that? I would be freelancing. Doing work and getting my info out for people interested or sell to papers.

It would be more so a personal project of interest than a big money deal. Got the paying gigs through this weekend.

Ok then tomorrow. :D

I am sure turn-out will be huge in Springfield so I don't have any advice for you.

That's when I'd go if I hadn't already voted.

Oops. It's a good thing I decided to check the polling times. I forgot there was a change in my polling place. I'm now voting in a church. Opens at 6AM. I might get up at 6 instead of 7 in the morning. I hope getting there at 7 gives me enough time to vote and get to work by 8.

It really settles down around 9pm in Missouri.

Last Wednesday at lunchtime was a great time to pull out my envelope, read through the pamphlet, and cast my ballot with a stamp and a short jaunt to the mailbox.

I'll probably go around 9 AM. Hasn't been busy in the past but I wonder about this time...but I want to go after those poor folks who have to go to work go.

2pm on Weds. is a great time, lines should be small by then. :D

In reality,I can't speak for your area, but across the country with the heavy turnout, I would say early.

I'm so glad I voted on Friday. I only waited in line for like 20 minutes.

If you vote early, your vote will surely be swamped by other voters and therefore be irrelevant. It's the late votes that are the game winners. The best time to cast a late vote is 9:00 pm after the evening rush hour lines have died down and most folks have made it home for dinner.

I'm guessing it's the Republicans who are not wanting me to vote. Leave it to them to attempt to trick me. :p
