Yes I am voting on election day
No I voted early
I'm not voting at all

I used to vote at my precinct in California before I moved to Oregon years ago, and in Oregon all voting is by mail, but just before the 2008 election I moved back to California. I barely registered in time, and I had to go down to the San Diego County Registrar's office to cast my vote. The line was very long, and it took me almost two hours, but I didn't mind at all because it seemed like a carnival atmosphere, and I was able to rub shoulders with other citizens performing their civic duty.
Since then I've voted by mail, but I admit to missing the excitement of those hours waiting to vote on that November day in 2008.
I have the ballot to vote early, but I usually take it and turn in to the polling place because my husband goes in to vote.
I voted at the Town of Buchannan Town Hall in Outagamie County WI about two weeks ago. It took about ten minutes. I felt damned good when I walked back to my car. I served my country for four years when I was a kid. I was allowed early graduation from HS and went in at 17 yoa. Wounded twice in Vietnam while fighting to stop communist aggression. And yes, I believed in the cause. I came back to hatred and insults. I treasure my right to express my opinion by casting my vote. I hope that you do too.
If you haven't voted, please vote today.
6 AM. Absolute ritual. Try to be first in line. I'm up anyway.
I voted this morning. Polling place was busy (and close to full), but there really wasn't a line to check in when I was there (unlike reports from several other polling places around town.) Coloring in the bubbles is always a bit tedious, but got it done without incident, including my first write-in vote. Machine accepted my ballot on the first try. All over but the drinking.
