Day 309 - Election day

When we voted late this morning, there was a steady stream of voters, but no long lines. With the registration roll on the laptops instead of paper, the poll workers quickly found our names, printed out our info, we signed and were given our ballot cards. There were two empty voting machines (touch screen) and we voted at the same time, returned the cards and were on our way. Afternoon reports were that turnout was about twice that of the previous few presidential elections, but I have not yet seen any final numbers.

Several states are claiming 80% voter turn out. No long lines here, either.
