View Full Version : How long was YOUR line?
Since this site is represented nationally, I thought it would be interesting to see how long it takes everyone to vote. I decided to wait until late morning when the "before
work" crowd diminished. It still took three hours and several chapters of a book before inserting the little plastic card...how about you?

I voted today at 9:30 AM here in Sebastian, FL and the line for my precinct was about 30 minutes. There were two other precincts voting in this crowded little room at an elementary school.....their lines were shorter. My wife went at 2 PM and had no line, no wait.
My usual polling site is at the library's public meeting room, but that was occupied by the FEMA Disaster Recovery Team. The other precincts regular spots (Elks Lodge and a church) were too damaged by the two recent hurricanes. It was the same all over the county where alternate polling places had to be found or old ones doubled up.
Most folks I've talked to that did the early voting thing waited in line locally for 2-2.5 hours. :(

Early voting, a week ago Saturday, 30 minutes in line, Plano, TX. It was held at the library where my wife works; she said the poll workers could never catch a break the entire 12 days of early voting. On the final night last Friday the line got incredibly long...over an hour after the polls closed people were still waiting.

Here's a different twist.
I took a day off and worked at a poll today. We had lines ranging from no wait to 20-25 minutes. 67% turnout at the poll I worked.
Definitely and interesting experience !
Had another poll in the same building (differnet precinct) and their line ranged from 15-40 minutes all day.

I had a 15 wait at 9:30am in Hickory Corners, Michigan and it wouldn't have been that long if a few numbnuts could figure out how to color in the dots. If you can't figure that out, you don't need to vote. :D
11-02-2004, 11:49 PM
No waiting whatsoever!
I just walked into the place and asked; "Is there where I vote Republican?"
I got everybody's attention right away! :D
My wife woulda slapped me, but I had moved out of her reach. :D
