    Exclamation Official Election Day 2008 Discussion Thread

    This thread will be opened first thing in the morning on Tuesday, November 4th and will be the only thread where discussion of the election will be allowed.

    NO PARTISAN REMARKS, DEBATE OR JABS WILL BE ALLOWED!

    THREAD IS ONLY TO TALK ABOUT NEWS AND THE RESULTS!

    If you don't want to see anything political, don't visit any website, turn on any radio station or watch any tv today.

    Regardless of your feelings on if this thread should be here or not, it is and you're going to have to put up with it.

    We bend over backwards to please as many people on here every single day and for once I'm putting my foot down and saying deal with it.

    Nice weather we are having! That's about as close to non-partisan as I am going to get.

    So are some areas already done polling? I figured we wouldn't get any results until past 8 PM tonight?

    I added the schedule of closings to the first post.

    Dixville has a special midnight polling every year. It went for Bush by a large margin last time and has gone Rep just about every year.

    Re: Official Election Day 2008 Discussion Thread

    I voted early on Friday at 11:00 am. They said that they had more first time voters than ever. I waited in a 40 minute line and they said that was normal. Also, they said the workers down there hadn't been able to take a lunch for days because of the number of voters coming through. Go VOTE!!!!!


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    I am going to try to go vote, but I refuse to wait three hours in line for 2 candidates I am not happy with. I guess I am going to be unamerican today if the lines are too long.

    Agreed...I'll vote, because I think everyone should. But, I WILL NOT wait in a long line.

    Agreed, and I'm not taking off work to do it either. Hopefully the lines will be shorter after dinner, unless everyone is a procastinator like me.

    Listening to Mike & Mike this morning and Golic was talking about his son being able to vote for the first time. He said he couldn't stress enough the importance of finding a polling location with the best catering. "You walk into a place that just has coffee and donuts, you turn right around and go find a place that has sandwiches. They are out there." Pretty funny stuff if you actually heard it.

    Re: Official Election Day 2008 Discussion Thread

    I just got done voting in West Des Moines. Showed up at 6:50 and there was a line of about 50. By the time the polls opened, the line had doubled in size.

    I was walking out the door by 7:25 and was voter #48.

    Should be on PoliticalFanatic.

    Either you want to talk politics here or you don't. There is no middle ground.

    I'll be trying to sneak out mid afternoon trying to sneak in between the lunch and after work crowd.
    Get out the vote!
