OT: Ain't it great to be an American?

Post by Ms.Goodwrenc » Wed, 03 Nov 2004 22:48:47


I've only had to stand in line at the polls once before, when a levy was on
the ballot to build our new high school.  I vote in a little one room
township house in the boonies.  It was nice seeing so many friends and
neighbors, some folks I hadn't talked to in awhile.  The parking lot on
each side of the road was packed with an array of vehicles -- everything
from muddy farm trucks to SUVs to sport compacts.  I guess the biggest
thing that struck me was how many young people there were... at least half
those in line were twentysomething, and a lot were voting for the first
time.  Two kids who graduated with my son last spring were there.  

Made me feel great to be an American.  :-)

There was a 2 - 3 hour wait when the polls opened at the school were I work.
The line has pretty much stayed constant throughout the morning.
Everyones mood has been upbeat and very positive. Almost no grumbling.
Nice to see everyone taking it in stride.

Here here..today was the biggest turnout I can recall at the polls. It's
the first time I had to wait in line to vote.

We had early voting down here (ok, here, NC, wherever that is in relation to
your locale) and there were lines at all the voting sites from the time it
started (Oct 14 maybe?) until it ended this past Saturday afternoon. And the
sites I went by today had some good lines*** out of them too.

Apparently, the news peeps are saying that this should represent the largest
turnout in our state's history or something akin to that.

You are so right Ms GW.  Same thing here in central Kansas.  Also heard from
our son in central Arizona with the same report.  It obviously IS going to
be a big year.  Good night to sit down in front of the TV with a fridge full
of Bud and a couple of pizzas.

Isn't that exactly what us snot nose hoytie toytie Repubs don't want? j/k

I like it actually, as long as people have a clue as to what they're voting
for, and not voting for the name they've had drilled in their head the
most.
