    Pick the swingiest state you claim domicile in and vote! Don't make us ban you :-) That is all.

    I already voted in Maine. Can I do it now in NC? I think they might object.

    We voted. I told my husband who to vote for in each category before we went in, hopefully he obeyed me.

    Default Vote!

    I didn't spend 36 months overseas for you to sit home on election day.

    Vote early. Vote often.

    It's pretty scary that it was easier to vote in New Hampshire, than in New Jersey.

    In NJ we had the booth with the curtain, the big slot machine lever and all the little switches you had to flick, then when you're done, you pull the handle, and it resets everything and opens the curtain. I think they were made in the 1950's

    In NH we had a simple card stock paper with all the candidates and you just had to color in an oval, like the old scantron tests in school (except these had more space and weren't confusing). Then you take it and put it into the machine that scans it and you're done.

    We had a paper ballot that you drew a line across to vote. THe line went from one side of the paper to the other, with the candidate's name written on both sides. Really clear, very simple to use. When you're done, you put it into a machine that doesn't scan the card right away, but instead makes a single count (as in, there are x number of ballots in this machine). They then take those ballots elsewhere to scan them in.

    Took the day off from work, voted at 7am. CT's ballot was very simple, and at first I wasn't sure about using scantrons.....but everything (so far) seemed to have gone smoothly

    I voted, can I stay?

    In Rhode Island we used to have the machines like spyboy had in NJ, now we have paper that is scanned as you insert the ballot. 957 people voted ahead of me at 5:45pm in my location. I remember a presidential election that took me 3 hours of waiting to vote using those old machines with the levers. With the new ballots I was in and out in under 10 minutes.
