I am not normally a morning person but had an appliance delivery scheduled around 7 a.m. so I was up early and had time to get to the polls before I went to work. One of the poll workers told me they'd had as many people there already around 7:45 a.m. as they normally have by noon.

At work I had to go into the center of the campus, and there were signs everywhere instructing the students where their pollings stations were, and the local politicos (probably the campus democrats from what I could tell) had set up "free rides to the polls" spots. There was a very long line wrapped around three sides of the block where one of the student polling place was set up.

Interest is high, and the world waits with bated breath.

Keeping my fingers crossed we elect the uniter... not the ankle biter.

ETA: My parents voted at their polling place about two hours after I did (numbers 174 and 175) and said they had never seen numbers that high before in their ward.

We're rockin' this vote.

ETA (4:31 p.m. EST):  local precincts report some delays as people keep walking off with the pens used to fill out the ballots. they've had to nip out to the shops and buy a gazillion more.
