    Yep Carla and I were the first two at the polls in our precinct today we arrived at 0642 and voted at 0703 she was 1st and I was 2nd.
    The line was long when we came out but not one person there was wearing any FLIP-FLOPS so that may be a good sign for the north end of our county.

    That didn't leave ya much time for eating donuts & drinking your coffee :D

    I had to laugh on the news this morning they were reporting some little town in NH has 39 residents, 33 were registered. They opened at midnight & were done voting by 8 minutes after.

    Bush won by 1 -- only after a recount & then another double check. The first count had them tied.

    How in the he** do you screw up counting 33 votes. Gives me alot of faith in the rest of the system. :eek:

    I'll be glad when it's over - sick of all the newscasters polls (guesses) & all the assumptions !

    It's gonna be a LONG night I'm afraid . :mad:

    May the best man win ------ Bush :D :)

    I got to the polls about 11 am after a veterinary appointment, and I am told I missed the crowd during the morning rush hour -- of course, that was part of my plan.

    Three girls outside the front doors were handing out Republican literature, and I've had at least 5 phone calls in the last 24 hours urging me to vote Republican -- including a taped message from Laura Bush and a message from the NRA-ILA supporting the Republican (Indiana) Attorney General. The conservatives are doing a great job touching base with their grass roots.

    Oh yeah, I also had one group come to my door yesterday, Republicans for the gubernatorial candidate. I had a letter to the editor in the evening paper this week, myself, urging Republicans not to split their ticket, but vote a straight ballot -- we need all the Republicans in Congress that we can get since one vote in the Senate can pass or fail a bill on guns right now.

    I meant to go early, but I couldn't resist sitting around most of the morning drinking coffee. When I got to the voting machines, there was only one other person there, although the poll workers claimed it had been very busy ealier. It has been unusually cold (39--cold for here) and even more unusually wet, so that's a good sign people are going to turn out.

    In an only half-official poll at my rural precinct, based on the observation that the other person there looked decent enough, I'd say the tally was:
    Bush 2
    Kerry 0

    I went down about 10a.m. and had almost a hours wait very large for a small county never in all my years have i had to wait that long to vote. I am bothered by what I saw there 70 to 80% of the people where under the age of 25. We all know who there voting for they believe the lies. And 358 I got you message and don`t laugh I don`t know how to return the message? we will need to talk in the future sometime. and a personal thank you for doing that.

    Mrs njretcop and I voted at 7:00am. The polls are open in NJ from 6:00am to 8:00pm.

    Our voting district is very small, mostly just neighborhood people. 100 votes cast in the whole day is a lot. We were numbers 51 and 52 in the first hour. Looks like it's gonna be BIG!

    GO W!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    My wife and I voted around 0830 and went for breakfast. No line but we did get more than our usual amount of double takes. We had a fun day.
