I wish I could vote already! My county doesn't provide mail-in votes, so I have to wait until Tuesday.

But I'm ready now!
Holy hell, I was ready three months ago. I'd kill to have been able to vote early.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

Good point.
I"m so glad I got to vote last Friday (on the 24th)...but it's still nerve wrecking...I can't wait for all the votes to be counted, the electoral college votes to be determined and a winner to be declared!!!
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

No early voting here, so all 10 million Pennsylvanian voters will have to vote in one day. It should be fun...not...

I'll be parking my ass in front of the TV from 8pm onward Tuesday night. I'm not going to bed til I know who won.
I voted today. There was a really long line (not as long as the last day of early voting during the primaries though) but it only took about twenty minutes. They had a lot more machines. But I'm so ready for it all to be over. The year and a half of campaign and election talk has really worn me down.
CG since 6/15/08!

I can't vote early either. I just heard on the radio that Minnesota just broke the record for absentee votes and that they expect an 80% turnout on Tuesday!

I can't vote early, either. Adding to that, because of budgetary constraints, the city cut our 40-plus polling sites to 10.

Fortunately, I have a very flexible work schedule, so I will wait in line all damn day to vote if I have to.
shoulder-length 3a/b, depending on weather and products (or lack of products!)

Oops, I misspoke about the number of polling places. They did cut the number to 10, but it was for community elections earlier this month, NOT for the presidential election. Whew, I feel a little bit better now.

Just remember, voting early DOESN'T get the ads off your TV...

I wish I could vote early. I used to vote absentee all of the time (I was registered in one state but lived in another on a temporary basis) so actually going to a polling place in something I had to get used to a couple of years ago.

I actually stole it from redcelticcurls. There is someone who lives me who has it as a bumper sticker, though, which I think is awesome!

I am one of those weirdos who could have voted early, but isn't going to because I like voting on election day. I know, like I said, I'm a weirdo. Hopefully I won't have to wait in super-long lines. In 2004, with record turn-out, I still only waited for about a half hour to vote in a much busier precinct, so I am hoping it will be calm in my boring, mostly-elderly-people precinct!
I have class at 8:45 on tuesday BUT I'm not goin because I want to vote and dont want to miss my class at 10:15 which takes attendance and I have an assignment to hand in vs. the 8:45 class that doesn't take attendance and notes are online!
I'm excited this is my first presidental election I am partaking in
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
I mailed in my ballot weeks ago (as an American living abroad).

No idea if it got there or not, but I'm pretty sure that Obama can win San Francisco county even without my vote.


I voted early, but was dropped from the lists and had to vote provisionally. I'm still ticked off since my vote really doesn't count for much now.

I'm so ready to vote and find out the results. What's going to happen is going to happen and I'm tired of all the going on.
