Team McCain/Palin!!!!

I voted.

Now I'm just sitting in my boring, middle class suburban home, bitterly clinging to my guns and my religion waiting for the outcome.


My husband and I were in line at our voting center at 6:45 AM. The line was out through the parking lot of the church then down the street. I'd estimate that there were 150-200 people in front of me. Everyone was very civil. We were given sample ballots to read and I kept mine figuring it will be a collector item no matter who wins or loses, plus I wanted my youngest daughter to see it. We had to fill out a sheet of paper with our name, address and signature verifying we were who we said we were informing us that it was a criminal offense if we were trying to defraud anyone. My information was verified by computer, and I actually got in to vote at about 8:10 AM. They had 10 computerized voting machines that were easy to use and voting was quick. We did not see or hear anyone trying to persuade anyone else-no intimidation or questions. It was an all around good experience. I hope it was the same for you!

Yes I too will be clinging to my religion and all my guns, lmao.

I haven't gotten to go just yet. I have to have the hubby back at the surgeon's office at 1:30 and then after that is done we are headed to the poll and it will be MCCAIN/PALIN for me. From then I will go home and lovingly caress my guns while quoting biblical scripture.

Glad your experience went well, I do not look for issues at ours either. I will have to take a chair for the hubby in the event of long lines.

There wasn't anyone passing out palm cards at my voting center either, which surprised me.
I guess I lucked out...there were only two people in line in front of me, and I was out of there in less than ten minutes!

There were no issues for me, we were in and out of there within ten minutes.

Now if you will excuse me I am going to go caress my guns now.
