    Couple observations:

    I headed out just after 9am to vote. What normally is a 15 minute process took 45 minutes. This is the first time I've seen a line at my precinct. The line was just as long when I left.

    One woman was having touble with not being able to vote because of absentee ballot.

    There were new computer ballot machines at my precinct. I wonder what happen to the computer ballot machines used just two years ago?

    Having watch the demo of the computer ballot twice while waiting, I have doubts the poll workers, or at least the one giving the demo, understand the new technology.

    Moveon.org was the only group outside my precinct.

    I've already heard one report of a flash card in an electronic voting machine fail in Florida, losing about 15,000 votes in the process (no paper trail).

    I voted at noon, took less than 5 minutes, only one else in line was my lovely lamby wife.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    We will go tonight and I don't expect it to be too busy. This is a rural area.

    I know that township east of us had to call the print shop and order up some more ballots because they feared they would run out by this afternoon, so they must be getting hit hard.

    I went last Tuesday around 2:00. I figured it would be empty but I had to wait in line. There were about 30 people there then and more waiting when I finished.

    We voted on the computers. They were pretty neat. The only thing is I can see how someone up to no good could cheat. The people punch in their information but if the key cards are already preprogrammed no one would know.

    I voted already There was no line but I am in a rural area also. 249 people had already voted though!!

    I am lucky enough to be in Hawaii so I won't have to stay up late to watch all the shenanigans in the evening. IIRC, 4 years ago, CNN called Florida for Gore (the first time) by 7 my time.

    Before you guys go beating up on florida again, that flash card did break down, but it was only a scanning chip that they replaced and recounted those already. The 13,000 votes that it didn't scan properly are already in the totals that you see out there.

    And according to our local news (it was in Daytona Beach) Republican and Democratic lawyers supervised the recounting and had no complaints either way.

    cmayr23,

    I think Florida will be off the hook this election year. Looks like it will go to Bush outright anyways. Ohio is the one who matters tonight I believe.
