I just got back from voting. Dad went too. I don't know why we bother though because he votes Republican and I vote Democrat and we cancel each other out! laugh

I told him this wouldn't happen if he'd just vote Democrat but he'll never do it. lol

He's a die-hard conservative Republican through and through. Undecided

David we have early voting here in TX, and Dusty and I voted last week.

Clearly your Dad and I are on the same page this year.  Smiley

I voted! I wanted  to vote for (all Dems, natch) on the Working Family ticket, but I was afraid, like a 2000 Floridian Retirees stumped with the butterfly ballot, I'd f*ck it up; so I just voted the straight Dem ticket. (So sorry, Matt Damon, I apologize!)

In re voting the straight ticket, for me, Gary Wills said it best in this last weekend's NYTMagazine  interview with Deborah Solomon:

"I always vote the party. It’s ridiculous not to. You may like a person who is Republican, but if you vote for that person, you’re voting for all the apparatus that comes along with it."

Done now.

I posted this on FB - but I will cross post here. A Muslim family was behind me in line and a Spanish-speaking coupled entered as I left. That makes me feel patriotic.

I voted on my way home this evening, after work and after the gym.

I have noticed two very odd things about this election.

On Saturday, I received two recorded political message phone calls, so I turned off my answering machine, because I didn't want to be inundated with recorded political messages until the polls closed. Well, since I turned off the machine, I have received only one probable political phone call. I can tell this because even though the answering machine is turned off, the caller ID unit still captures incoming phone numbers. This strikes me as very odd.

The other odd thing is that there were no party workers outside my polling place. Every election, even primaries, there are always party workers outside my polling place. Not today.

 Huh?
