The "I Voted" thread

Election day is 12 minutes away on the East Coast. This is the thread to post in once you've voted. For those of you who do vote - congratulations. You now have earned the right to complain about everything for the next four years.

Personally, I Early-Voted last Friday night. Early voting was supposed to end on Wednesday (I think), but because the storm closed it down for two days, the Gov extended it until Friday night. I drove my Dad (age: 79) out to a local community college, and we both went in to stand in the pretty impressively long line.

Dad has trouble standing, so he sat in a chair they had set out; someone apparently came and ushered right up front. I didn't see this, of course, because I was at the tail end of the line; it ended up taking me about an hour fifteen to move through. The election volunteers couldn't have been more efficient. Voting itself took about five minutes.

So go out and vote. Those of you in swing states may end up standing there for hours and hours, but it's important, and worth it. You could very well end up being the deciding vote. Then come in here and post about it.

My gf made me stand in line for 1 hr at the great mall last weekend to vote. I told her she was wasting her time as she lives in Kansas. She a one issue republican. Hates abortion...comes from evangelical family but has all liberal views when it comes to politics otherwise.






I wrote in Ron Paul but next election ill probably have to vote for gary Johnson

I honestly have a great idea, don't abolish the electoral college, make every state worth the same amount of points. Don't give me the reason that because I don't live in a state that has a higher population that our portion of the vote isn't as high. If you made all states equal, dangerous concept I know, but then the candidates would actually have to visit the country that's voting them into office. Yes, it would make the bus tours more time consuming and difficult but we're talking about our President who'll be set up for life and run our country for us. I also read online that someone can win the election by winning 18 out of the 50 states. Talk about a broke ass system all together.

And honestly I would move if I was a staunch Democrat, but I'm not. I'm a person who votes for the man I believe will make this country great. I don't know why I say that seeing as its the parties and cabinet that run the country most of the time, not the actual President.
That is a terrible idea. You want to give Alaska as much stock in an election as a state with 20 times the population. You are basically saying that millionsbof pplll in the more populous states votes dont matter. Popular vote is the way it should be..its plain and simple and makes sense

I tend to agree, but man, wouldn't a recount be a bitch?

That was the articles logical point that a recount would take far too long. I still believe you could go state to state county to county without the electoral college and rely on the popular vote but we all know it won't happen in our lifetimes. I'm going to throw away my vote but I still want to contribute regardless.

Voted for Romney last Saturday.

I also voted for the Libertarian candidate over Kevin Yoder since no Democrat was running against him. Any politician who is stupid enough to get drunk and go skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee loses my vote.

Why would anyone wonder. It was obvious that you'd end up supporting the middle-of-the-road socialist.
