I have voted.

November 1st, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

I went out yesterday to do “in person absentee” voting. It took about 3 hours, not counting travel time. The line was fairly long, but certainly not long enough to be solely responsible for the type of waiting we endured. The process was woefully inefficient and I can only hope that Tuesday will run more smoothly.

On the plus side, I’ve never seen interest like that for ANY election before. Virginia doesn’t allow “pre-voting”, so these were all people who are simply going to be unavailable on Tuesday. I think Virginia is going to wind up being a fairly late-night call on Tuesday. We just don’t seem to be ready for the sheer volume of participants and I imagine the governor will have to extend voting in multiple areas.

If Election Day is ANYTHING like what I saw yesterday, bad trouble’s a-comin’ for a LOT of voters.
