They probably though it meant the 'last name' of the person they were voting FOR - 'O' or 'R'

Drove by two local schools while out today and noticed very short lines so far.
May get heavier later ... or not ...

Well Boy,s i just got back had to do some erands also. The voting was a very long line but it moved pretty good the whole thing took about 45 minutes including parking and a long walk to the poles.The voting part was 30 minutes ,I have to say they did thier homework in the place i voted it was well set up plenty of people and they kept it moving at a moderate pace,no body seemed to be upset at the small wait to vote.

If it's a card type piece of mail, right in the circular file without a glance or a thought.
No home phone = no calls!

We vote in a park in our neighborhood.

Re: Lines at the polls

Early voting and mail in defintely growing in popularity. I didn't get any phone calls, just a dozen or so mailers every day and non stop TV ads....

Re: Lines at the polls

30 minutes tops, but an interesting observation.

3 lines based on last name: A-G, H-R and S-Z.

No one in the A-G line, I was in the S-Z line which had about a dozen people. H-R line was out the door and into the parking lot. Probably over 60 people!

It's all mail in here in Washington, it's nice but I have to say I kind of miss going to the schools and such and punching the card...

Haven't been to a polling place in 30 years or more

But I LOVE getting the political calls (usually) - specially right when we're having dinner or in the middle of the World Series (really!)
I 'yak' those folks up when they call me - ask about their candidate, ask how they differ from the opponent(s), ask what their platform is and how it was formed, ask how often they'll follow-up with constituents with updates and information, and on-and-on-and ...
I figure I'm keeping them from calling anyone else and bothering them during dinner
Oh, and when they seem to want to go or start asking how I'm going to vote - I tell them I already voted

And there's no 'Under 10 Sec.' selection in the pole - which is how long it took me to ask my wife to stack it with the out-going mail ...

Re: Lines at the polls

Back when I was traveling a lot I signed up for permanent mail in voting. It's been nice to be able to tell all the callers "already voted" for the last couple weeks!

Re: Lines at the polls

What's nice about living out in the country is you get to vote in an old school house or church...they give you coffee and cookies (no ) and you see old friends for a chat, everyone is happy the event is almost over and my wife and I slipped in and out, all done, in less than 5 minutes. Life is good.

I'll find out when I vote after work, about 4:15 or so.

Re: Lines at the polls

I waited about 7 minutes at 7:30 am and was out by 7:45 am at the local school. Funny...almost everyone being asked for their address and name to get the ballot were from my area ..within 3 blocks either way. Guess we all wanted to get a early vote in
