I went down to where I vote (a busy city high school) and stood in line for about 15 minutes (have no patience for lines) and decided to go back after work. I've never seen a line there before - and I was amazed - and glad - to see a lot of younger, most likely, first time voters.

Me, too, about as long. Never had a line at the polling place before (been voting there for about 20 years). Pretty cool.

Voted @ 6:30am. Stood in line with a cold, in the cold, in the rain, and .... AND .... I crap you not. This huge, huge, huge lady on an electric wheelchair rolled over my right foot. But not all the way over. Rolled on it, stopped her 2ton vehicle and looked at me. I could feel my foot bones cracking.

"Sorry." She said like that's what she was suppose to say whether or not she wanted to.
"Just get the d@mn thing off my foot, please."

I went to my polling place at 8:00 this morning, and was voter #49 at my small precinct. No waiting, although I think I just missed a crowd because several people were leaving just as I got there.

I did my part to put an end to the political advertising blitz.
