Not today, but yes. My wife is, sometime today when I leave work to watch the kids for a bit.

“I voted two weeks ago.”

Shame the Lancaster County Election Commission doesn’t include a sticker when they mail your ballot. 😉

I voted last Friday.  I haven’t missed a single vote in my entire life.

Who did you vote for in the Pepsi Challenge? 😉

Nice.  I don’t even know what that is. :(

We’ll vote after work as an entire family. I want my children to understand the importance of what happens in a Democracy.

Thats pretty cool. Mine are a little young yet, but two of the three voted in school (kindergarten and third grade). My son last night was telling my almost 5 year old that he didn’t vote for the lady in Alaska because she broke laws when she was there. While that is up for dispute on some levels, I was more impressed that he picked that up from conversations my wife and I have had about it. He is against 424, though…...*sigh* I see many interesting dinner conversations in my future.

CP - My parents always took us to the polls when I was a youngster too. 

CS - Adorable!  It reminds me of this story I saw yesterday.

Really? Well study up, Dave, because you never know when knowledge like this will help you win a game of Trivial Pursuit: Pepsi Challenge

Oh, I see.  I don’t drink pop, so I’m not eligible for that one.  If I remember correctly, Pepsi was the lesser tasting of the two.

I just got back from the voting booth. Afterward, I participated in my very first exit poll. Look for my vote on TV!

I voted for Coke when I took the Pepsi Challenge. I took it at the West Acres mall in Fargo, ND about a dozen times. I think I picked Coke every time. I was just excited about free pop.

I still drink Coke.

I just made a (hand written) sticker for an early-voting co-worker.  It says: “I Voted Last Week!” 

A different co-worker, who commutes from Gretna, has a simple “I Voted” sticker that would be perfect for early voter.

I’m sure they’ll show the results of everyone’s votes tonight. 😉

I voted around 11:30, good turnout, short line at my polling place. Two ledgers being used and I was #148 in the ledger I signed.

I was number 64 at my polling place. That was prior to 9:00 am. Where I vote there are actually two precincts voting. The other line was much longer than the one I was in.

Oregon elections are 100% vote by mail.  I miss spreading the ballots and the voters pamphlets on the kitchen table and having all the time in the world to ponder each check mark.

they might have increased the precincts where I voted. There are a lot more folks west of Coddington Avenue since the last presidential race.

I went around 9:30 this morning. I was #139 and there was no one in line at the time. I think I found a rare moment when the place wasn’t busy. I even got a free cup of coffee from Starbucks afterward.

4:30 PM and I was the 269th voter.  I was shocked cuz I am usually around 70.  Poll worker said it was the first time it has ever gone over 200 in her time at that place.

November 5, 2008 at 8:21PM

My wife went to ours at about 7:30, and was #500.
