well with all the hype, "they" estimate that some 30% of Florida voters voted early. The lines to vote early were very long - 1 to 2 hours at the 3 polling places in our county. I decided that there was just something romantic about voting on election day, even if i did have to wait in a super long line to do it.
So i dropped evelyn off at school and came into work, where i picked up jason and we went together to our polling place, down the road from where we live. As we were pulling into the parking lot, NPR was saying how everyone should prepare for long lines today as record voter turnout is expected. We got into the polling place and there were three people set up to give out voting forms, about 15 places to fill out your form.... and NO line to vote. There was precisely ONE person voting at the time we walked in. We were in and out in about 5 minutes.
So hooray for election day! Can't wait to watch the returns tonight, and am glad i got to cast my vote on the 4th without all the waiting.
