Long lines, confused people, and freezing temperatures ushered in Election Day in Ohio. I arrived at 7:00 am to see a line of people standing outside waiting to vote. None of the poll workers were equipped to handle such large crowds at this new polling location.

After 45 minutes of waiting I finally was given my ballot to vote. While waiting for mine to be scanned, I noticed the scanner in the adjoining district was labeled "broken". Those ballots were to be hand scanned later. Hmm. I suspect many lawsuits will be filed against Ohio and a few will be won.

If you don't vote, you may not complain!


  1. It was even cold in South Carolina. I was in line at 6am in a light rain and it was cold, so damned cold. But the wait was absolutely worth it.

  2. Absolutely! I would do it all over again if I had to.

  3. The amount of waiting that so many people had to do! I even heard of some people waiting as long as 5, 6 hours! And yet, wait they did. Round of applause for everyone who persevered. It matters.

  4. It mattered more than ever this election!
