    I'll be there even if I have to stand in the rain, get soaked and have to go back home to change clothes afterward.

    We have mandatory vote by mail but I kind of miss the old polling place. It was always a short visit but you just felt you were part of something.

    I'll probably be there about 8AM and then I might treat myself to breakfast before going to work. If things go badly, I won't feel like eating later...

    Unlike some the condition of this world and where it is going is of great concern to me. The hatred that is being revealed by this new world, read American order is more than bothersome to me. I never thought I would see so much hate for our brothers and sisters as I am seeing now.

    Vote by mail for us. We turned in ballots for the whole family at our neighborhood branch library a week or so ago. They make it so easy here... which explains why Oregon is one of the top states in terms of voter turnout. The top is still Minnesota. You go LAKERS!!!

    I was going to go early since the wife is away for work but my daughter asked me if I’d go with her when she gets out of work at 3:30. Can’t say no to that. Maybe we’ll swing by the brewery afterwards.

    I'm voting a straight Dem ticket as well.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Washington, just north of Oregon, is also a mail in state. Sit at home, grab a beer, do some research if you need to, take as long as you want. It's so much nicer than going out in the rain, finding parking, and standing in line.
    Michigan seems like a dream to me now.

    I don't know why all states simply don't do what Washington state does - vote by mail. It saves the state money, does not inconvenience voters, and provides a paper trail for votes. What is not to like?

    In California a mail-in ballot is treated as a provisional ballot and not counted unless it is needed.
    I receive my ballot by mail, fill it out at my leisure, then on election day I take it to the polling place and put it in the box...

    I'm going to vote in the AM, then I'm going to the barbershop and to get a haircut. ( Though the topic of discussion is guaranteed to be the election). After that, kids are off from school ( since school is a polling place) so we'll figure something to do.

    The problem is, here in Oklahoma, the only dim that has any chance is Edmondson, for governor. The family has been prominent in politics here for decades. He was promoting hiliary in ‘16, so i don’t look for him to succeed. Bob’s got it wrong though , dimocrats are supposed to vote Wednesday.

    As a country of immigrants in a country with freedom of religion, There are a lot of people who seem to forget where they came from and the rights of others.

    I was sixth in my precinct to cast my ballot this morning. Had a new poll worker who could not find my name. The supervisor came by and saw right off she was looking on the wrong page.

    You do know I was taught to never ask a woman her age or to ask anyone how much money they made or how they voted.. I figger that is why they have those little booths they want you to go in.

    I got to say it took every ounce of my strength to get in and out of that place, by the time I got to sign in I was shaking so bad I was just able to sign my name and I was really beginning to wonder if they might have to help me back to the car, but by golly I gotter done.
