    The “Glamour Shots” on the walls of the early voting Kohls were a nice touch.
    Traffic gridlock was so bad that I drove across the street and parked where Northland Mall used to be. 1 1/2 hours from the car and back, but I had a day off yesterday so I took advantage of the opportunity.

    we can put transformers and shit on Mars, but after 200 years, we still can’t run a decent, easy, transparent and robust election?

    because NASA is government run and election polls are old people run. Just think what would happen if a bunch of 80/90 year olds tried to put a rover on mars.

    yeah, i guess we just need a few more years of practice.

    There would still be something to complain about.

    40 minute line at 8:10 am. The line was tapering but still probably 20 minutes when we left.

    We went in around 9am on Mt. Vernon and had no one in line in front of us. In and out in less than 10 minutes, which is the norm for our polling location over the past few years.

    Yep, always in and out on Bryden…same thing this am. East peasy.

    Romney jets into Columbus for final Columbus campaign stop
    By Christopher Braun
    Published: Monday, November 5, 2012

    Romney spoke to a packed crowd at his “victory rally” at Landmark Aviation near the Port Columbus Airport about the fate of America if President Barack Obama is re-elected for a second term and painted his own plan for a better America. He said Obama promised change he did not create, and “accomplishing real change isn’t something I just talk about, but something I’ve already done and something I will continue to do as president of the United States with your help.”

    Depends on where you are I guess. My station had a wide range of ages running the polls, including one of my former VolunTeens from the library. So proud!

    I thought Romney came in on that blimp floating above C-bus!

    15 minute wait at Grandview High School. Not bad

    Almost an hour at Thompson Rec. It’s kind of a cluster over there.

    I also felt pretty unsafe going there to vote without any New Black Panthers there to protect me.
