Vote to rid me of my sadness!

I went to vote today on my way home from work shortly after 12pm. I’d been to the same polling location before, but when I got there and didn’t see a line, I thought I made a mistake. Unfortunately, I hadn’t. A sign tracking the number of votes cast at the location was taped to the door. 247 before 12pm. There was one woman voting when I got there, and one man came in while I was in the middle of casting my ballot. My sister and mom said their voting experiences were very similar to mine. How depressing!

Please go vote!

Go here to find your polling location and see a sample ballot (click on the Election 2006 button in the upper right corner).

    Same thing at my location, though I went early before work.

    I waited in line for 25 minutes to vote in Westbury. Six machines and 30 people in line around 9:30 a.m. My wife had the same experience around 1:30 p.m.
