    I'm in Georgia.....

    I was at the pole at 6:45 an took my place in line for the 7pm opening, I probably had 200
    in front of me. Things went smooth, everyone seemed to be in a good mood, lots of chat in line.
    I walked out 1hr. 20mins. later (8:06) pretty fast for so many ahead of me...I guess we don't
    have many "undecided" voters around here, huh?

    Oh, when I left the line was still at least 200 long it's going to be a big turnout as predicted.

    I was in line at 7am. They ended up moving the inside line to outside and I was then behind at least 200 people, LOL! The husband had to get to work, so we're going back this afternoon. It was so disappointing leaving without voting yet. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood. I looked over the crowd and was trying to pick out who everyone was voting for, LOL!! This has turned into a bad habit, LOL!!

    I voted a couple of weeks ago at our local Von's grocery store. I go to the store about every other day and there hasn't been a long line, but every booth (about 20 of them) are filled every time I go by. It only took me about 10 minutes to vote.

    There has been a huge turn-out of early voters here so far, so I can't wait to see the results.

    The dems keep touting how they are going to win because so many early voters are registered democrats...... but that ASSumes those dems are voting along party lines.

    I cannot wait!!!

    was easy...I sat down w/ a #2 pencil, and simply connected arrows pointing to the choice I wanted to make. Then I sealed it up, and Mary took them to a voter-kiosk set up near one of our busy streets. :)

    Easy as pie.

    My son and I just went and voted for Bush and we were in line for about a half hour. ALL the people in front and behind us were voting for Bush and we had a really nice wait in line, we were all talking about why we are voting for Bush. Darn near brought tears to my eyes. I am in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

    2 of the people in line with us were at the Bush rally in Burgettstown PA yesterday and they said there were about 12,000 people there to support him.

    Voted in KY at 6:00 this morning. Long lines of very happy people excited to vote. When I stepped into the booth and hit the button for GW it was like punching the two Johns right in the nose...it was great!

    It was crowded but they had a very efficient well organized system. I was told it has been crowded since they opened at 6.30 am. Interestingly the girl in front of me who hardly spoke English had no ID with her so she was politely told to come back tonight with the ID and she could vote then. Im glad they are checking for that!

    They don't check ID's here. You just give them your name and address and they check to see if you're in the right place. I could go and say I'm anyone and vote. So bad!!!
