    Default How long was your line to vote??

    I haven't been yet...probably going after lunch. Dh went at 8 and didn't have to wait long, but they said the lines at 6am were huge.

    Default Walked straight in and voted. No waiting.

    We used those bubble ballots like the ones used when taking a multiple choice test in school. I have never worked so hard to color inside the lines. LOL!

    I read in our newspaper that 37% of registered voters in our county had voted early. Maybe that's why it was so quick.

    Default In Minneapolis, MN, suburb...dh walked right in at 8:30 am...

    so I quickly threw on clothes (working from home today) and walked right in as well. Very happy it wasn't long! Our polls opened at 7 am, so maybe they were really busy before 8 am. I think they typically are longer here after 5 pm.

    SO happy to have my vote in!

    I voted last Wednesday, right as the polls opened. I waited about 5 minutes, but when I left, the line had grown to about 40 people.

    DH voted this morning (darn it...LOL!) and got there right at 6 when polls opened, took about 20 minutes.

    Default I heard lines were long when polls opened at 7...

    ...not hours long, but maybe 20 minutes or more.

    I am voting at 3:30 after I pick the kids up from school. Taking the rest of the day off from work at that point so that the kids (4 & 6) can go with me. They've been so interested I think it is something they'll remember.

    Default Most of the time that I go and vote

    there are usually about 4-5 people in front of me. Today, there might have been 6 or 7. But, it took longer than it should have because all of the people were senior citizens that needed help with those fancy computers. LOL!

    Voted at around 10 CST. No line at all. About 20 of the 25 booths were occupied. Whole thing took about five minutes.

    Default no line at our school

    I voted by mail a couple weeks ago. Our polling place is my children's elementary school. I thought it would be chaos ... people dropping off kids for school and then voting. Nope. No lines at all.

    Of course, I'm in CO and 1/3rd of our state have already voted prior to today. It's going to be a record turnout.
