    I voted for Ron Paul in the primaries and I'm planning to vote for Chuck Baldwin for prez since he's about the only candidate that isn't bought and paid for by the international pinko-fascist association. :)

    No way to correct spelling once you post a poll. Sorry for the typo. :tear: And the first choice italicized was unintentional. Don't know what happened.

    I was amazed at how long the line was early this morning. Fortunately, when you are obviously physically disabled or elderly, they take you to the head of the line. I wonder if it is like that everywhere or just at our local early voting place or county? Anyway, it was very nice for my elderly parent to not have to stand in such a long line. People were probably waiting for an hour to cast their ballot even though there were many booths available. The workers said it had been that way every day, every hour, every minute since the early voting polls opened. Wonderful turnout in Tennessee!! :) Go Vols!

    I voted by absentee ballot. After filling it out I took it to the US Embassy here in Prague. They will send it to the States and it will be mailed from D.C.

    I did not "vote." My vote is secret and I never tell who I voted for.

    No, I was at a conference in San Antonio this week and the wife decided she'd do me a favor and clean my office. I can't find anything and my absentee ballot was on my desk waiting my return. I can't find anything and she has the nerve to call me unappreciative.

    I'm not too happy but I will go to the county on Monday and have it replaced. No way I'm not voting.

    Mine is ready to go in the mail tomorrow, we vote by mail in OR so soon as it comes I say no to everything that costs and yes to everything that will cause some prison time for crooks and yes to any citizen benefits over government :laugh:

    We have one that allows the home owner to do 35,000 in remodel/repair WITHOUT getting state and city permits :thumbs: They require a permit for everything here. Cut limbs - get a permit, landscape to the curb - get permission/permit, change a water heater - get a permit.

    Surprised they don't have home depot issuing them with the do it yourself stuff :laugh:

    We also vote entirely by mail in Spokane County, Washington. I have my ballot, but have not yet filled it out. I will vote, but I agree with crabtownboy -- my vote is secret.

    Just a minor comment -- a few years ago, I was notified that my absentee ballot had been rejected, because I had a previous-year ballot come in too late to be counted. My voter registration was therefore negated. (This was while I was stationed overseas in the USAF, and involved another state). Could this have been an attempt by partisan election officials to sway the election their way? Could this be another (albeit old) method used to "disenfranchise" the military vote, as has been seen to happen in the last few elections? Keep your eyes open for rejected ballots!

    Yes, I am worried about the potential for fraud in this year's elections, for all levels of government! If I can't see my ballot getting accepted and counted, there is a danger of election fraud.

    If it were, it would have to of been the post office committing the disenfranchisement. Ballots are timestamped as they arrive by the mail room. This is long before they are opened. In our county the ballots are opened and read by automated counting machines and are only had counted by a human when the machine has a problem with the ballot. If yours was rejected because of time, your ballot and envelope should still be filed together. Only the ones counted are separated.

    This is how it worked in our county when I volunteered a few elections ago.

    When I was in the military I always made sure I voted as soon as I got my ballot even if I was in the field. If you make a mistake, request a new ballot instead of erasing on your ballot. Mail the ballot as soon as it is completed and not try to get it in at the last minute.

    I voted early at the Bellevue Community Center in Nashville last week. I must have hit a lull because there were only a couple of people in line when I got there. Finding a parking space was harder than voting. When my wife and her mother went the next day, it was much worse. My wife will be a poll worker on election day. She was told that she had to vote early because poll workers might not be able to leave their posts to vote on election day. I wonder if they will have to attend to other daily (cough . . . cough) chores early also. :eek: :laugh:

    I voted early on Monday since i'm working the polls in the general election and voted for Sarah Palin and her running mate. :thumbs:
    Now as for the congressional/senate election i didn't vote since it was only the incumbent and a Green party candidate and i didn't want to waste a vote on either.

    I voted today. I filled out my absentee ballot then took it in so it can be stamped.
