    i do not want to know who you voted for...but simply how it went. How were things at your polling place?

    I live in a very small county of nc. We made the WSJ for alledged voter fraud.

    okay this is just some background:

    Campaigns Try New Web Tactics In Battle to Tap Fresh Supporters - WSJ.com

    here is the voter fraud:

    Washington Wire - WSJ.com : Complaint Filed Over Voting Signs in Avery County, N.C.

    i vote in one of the smaller polling places. I am probably one of 6 democrats in the polling region. 3 of them living at my house. I found the voting process Nov 4 th done very well. The ladies made sure that you knew to vote for the president and than straight..they were handing out slips with instructions etc. i hear one woman tell a guy there was a phone number he could call...to make sure his vote was counted....i ask for the phone number after i put my ballot in that machine thingie...she goes..."thats not a shredder" i ask why he got a number...she replies.."provisional ballot"
    we were in and out in minutes. No problems. Now I do not know what happened in Elk Park but I do know on the ballots it had an example..and the circle was colored in.

    so how did your voting experience go?

    My voting was fine but a guy 6 people ahead of me got trned down to vote and he was furious. I couldn't hear the whole conversation but he thought he was registered. He did not file a provisional ballot.

    The wait was 35 minutes.
