Please do not state who you voted for or what your political stance is, because it'll lead to flaming and such. Besides, if you know me long enough around here then you should already know where I stand politicaly.



Please don't make me have to repeat this again.

Well since today is election day and....is school in session today? Anyhoo, I'd love to know if any of you voted already or have yet to vote. Are you old enough to vote now?

And if you did vote, how did it go? Where the people there friendly to you?

For me it went smoothly, even though I had to get an address changed to where I currently live now. And I had to vote with those paper things where you circle in your choice. I remember in the 2008 election I was using the touch screens. But yeah, it was a good experince but I didn't talk to anyone though. Don't wanna make anymore enemies.



No college close for election day and you must be 18 to vote. I voted for a democrat because i believe that supporting the poor is very substantial to our country. I mean America did start out with only farmers.

I actually don't disagree with that. And let's not forget voter fraud, people not being informed enough on the issues to make their own decision, or even attempted voting machine server hacking from places in China and Iran....WTF.


On the "people not being informed enough on the issues to make their own decision" point, I believe that local libraries and universities have some sessions that teach people how to vote, right? My university held several of them and I saw a lot of older people came. I don't know much details about those though . . . because I never care enough about them.

----------------------
Back to topic, my university offered early voting so I did that. It was in one of the 4 ballrooms of our university so students there could have done it before, between, or after classes, which was a plus. Also, there wasn't even a line there so I didn't have to wait at all, which is why I like early voting so much.

To be honest, I wasn't entirely happy with the candidates though, but there was nothing I could actually do except just pick the one I dislike the least

---------------------
And just so that the OP won't have to repeat himself again (since he seems quite piss about it, xD), the next poster, please remember:

I voted. Didn't go that well. I went online and got my polling place directions but when I got there, I wasn't on the list. I had registered and everything but it seems like my previous polling place (the one I was initially assign to) for some reason was closed so the one I went to was the back up. The place was ridiculously small. The poll workers were overwhelmed by the horde of people (good turn out). In the end I had to vote provisional . I grrr'd. But I voted.

End of rant.

The Democrats retain the Senate but barely. The repubs won the house but thats not where the power is; everyone knows they wanted the senate. Thank whatever God is out there that there are still sane people in this country. But Obama only has 2 years to gain everyones trust again I don't think he will be so lucky again in 2012 for re-elections.

I didn't vote, both republifags and decmocraps are crooked and serve the banks and capitalists before they even think about helping the people.

If you voted Democrat, you will get poorly thought out social reforms... If you vote Republican, we will creep towards a evolved form of fascism, where instead of an authoritarian control, it will be a bank purchased democratic process of censorship and control...

Here's something to think about... It's nice to help the less fortunate, but when it is overly regulated through laws, guess what, it's abused...

Whoever you vote for, you are just getting one side of a coin with two faces. Have fun getting raped by the corporate and social machine.

If you went wearing what you have as your avatar, it certainly would be!

I approve of this.

My PJs? I don't think showing up in my pajamas would look very credible as a voter.

Well if I saw you like that i'd probably think... She is so dedicated to her politics, she couldn't even be bothered to put on clothes! Wow, she must really know her stuff, I must learn from this.

So if my hosh posh theory is correct, if you really want to be taken seriously at the poles... You must go in your birthday suit to show how firm your belief is.

Okay, so from now on, you must show up to naked to vote. Who has time for decency? You have a candidate to put in power! Your country calls, not clothes!

Didn't hear about any closings in my area and I didn't wish to vote. Seems pointless.
