    gotta watch fl, the panhandle is deep red, and those polls close last.

    I think all of FL is closed now, right? The panhandle under AL is on CST and should've just closed 15 minutes ago at 7p.m. The right side and peninsula is on EST and I think it closed at 8 so that the whole state would close at the same time. Is that not right?

    Bitter - I'm feeling anxious too.

    Laurent - I never knew Fl was in 2 different time zones until today. I love learning new things.

    laurent - there are lots of long lines so as long as you're there by 7 pm, you get to vote no matter how long it takes so nothing was closed as of 7 pm.

    Yeah, they are. AL is supposed to be all on CST, but there are a few places on the GA state line that go by EST and it gets confusing b/c GA polls close at 7 EST and AL an hour later at 7 CST. I think they try and avoid that in FL and decided to close all their polls at the same moment, but I may be wrong.

    I read in Sunday's Washington Post that some of the polls in the panhandle close at 8, but maybe that was wrong.

    That's it. I'm not watching any more election shit until tomorrow. I got too much shit on my mind not related to voting and to have to think about that on top of everything else? I can't deal.

    A Pennsylvania electronic voting machine has been taken out of service after being captured on video changing a vote for President Obama into one for Mitt Romney, NBC News has confirmed.






    I'm sure this man's machine was the only one acting up.

    Shit. I remember voters saying this was happening in the second George Dubya election, but no news media seemed to pick the story up. Finally, I find a reason to be grateful for camera phones - and a ballsy voter willing to risk arrest to get the truth out there. Good man.

    We still have the old school paper ballots and felt tip pens and you have to manually mark your ballot and feed it into the machine. I'm pretty glad of it now.

    Wow. On ABC24 (Aussie) they said people are waiting in line between 4 and 5 hours in Virginia. A lack of voting equipment/booths is the main problem. When I vote (we still use paper and pencil) there's usually about 10 booths at each location!

    I have HuffPo up on my computer and they are tracking polls and it keeps flipping Florida back and forth. I feel so anxious today.

    Same here! Fuck machines, they can be messed with, and obviously they are. Ugh.

    It was quiet and pleasant at my voting spot today. Times like this I know we are still a small town with a lot of nice people, despite our problems.

    Yeah that's how mine is only you use a black ink pen. LOL Funny thing here: The pens at each of the stations had damned plastic forks or spoons taped to them! Either that's to make it easier for the oldies to hold on to them, or to keep absent-minded from sticking them in their pocket and walking off with them. I just thought, damn...this is so low rent!
