I voted today ....
#1
.... was about the 20th person at my polling place, about 7:10 AM. Wasn't asked for ID, but everyone there knows me, somewhat steady flow of folks coming and going while I was there, saw a few other places in the area had lines to get in. Can't compare this to past voting experiences as I normally vote at the end of the day.

Well there ya have it. My 2012 voting experience.

My name was actually flagged that I must show Id. I said no. They said but it says you must. I said no again and flipped the sign up that was taped to the table. The one that said they had to ask but you did not have to show it. She then said that this had nothing to do with the sign. I said no. Another worker came over and said let me go.

How late are polling stations open? I don't get off work until 5-6pm...

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

8 PM, however if you're working late I believe by law you are allowed to make time to vote.

I got a flyer in the mail that said they will ask but it is only required of people who moved or if it is their first time voting at that poling place. I moved, so I'll show mine. I don't like that they'll ask people it's not required of though. What's the point? I understand the reasons to require it, and if that was the law I wouldn't challenge it, but if it's not required, why not just let the line move a bit quicker?

New polling place, but there was a line out the door. Someone of the old timers said it was very busy - more than usual. But a few voting machines were down, so that was creating a bottle neck. We had a guy get pretty steamed over not knowing his precinct. Tempers were a little hot there and this is Western PA. I imagine R voters in Philthy are going to be accosted something fierce.

I voted this morning. I was 29th at my location. Still about 30 people in line when I was leaving.

Now get this:

I'm on SEPTA on my way to work and I spot a plane flying over Philly towing a banner that reads: "Keep Moving Forward Vote Today".

I'll be heading out shortly, OC'ing. Put the daughter on the bus and the three year old is eating some cereal and then we're taking a walk.
