    I'm actually quite nervous. I have to get up at 5:00 am to be an Election Inspector. I will be working from 5:30 until 9:30 but they say it may be nutso and I might be there much longer than expected.

    I'm afraid of all the nuts that might start yelling if I ask for a photo ID and they don't have one. If they don't I have to give a provisional ballot but I have heard today that people are being told not to accept a provision ballot but that they should be persistant and make it known that they want to vote right then and there.

    Here's hoping I make it though the day alive!

    Anyone else here giving up a day in their life to do this?

    No, just getting up and leaving earlier to go vote.


    I admire you for what you are doing Gigi!

    Drinks LOTS of strong coffee and eats LOTS of sugar! :)

    I wouldn't worry about it, they know if they go apeshit they goto jail and cant vote. You'll be fine and if anyone gives you any crap just choke them out, it only takes 5-15 seconds and works like a charm ;) I've had to do it three times on various apprehensions ive made :)

    I'm back. That was the longest day in History. I gotta say the Republicans came all out to try and beat the great O but they just could'nt do it.

    Oh well, my "Don't Blame Me I Voted for Ron Paul" bumper sticker is firmly adhered to my vehicle....
