7 hour voting lines in.......Florida

Voter suppression at its best, in AMERICA.  South Florida is voting like a third world country (says Ed Schultz who just had a large segment about this on his show today)

It's just so amazing to me that the people tollerate that.  That people are allowing that.  Voter suppression = Romney as President.

Oh and for everyone in Florida, ya know in other states you can go online, print out a ballot, mail it in.   Then you go online 2 days later, log on and the computer tells you that your ballot has been received and counted or if there is a problem why so you can fix it.  Just saying, people of Florida and the other states that are like it shouldn't tollerate 7 hour lines. 

Or as in one county in south Florida today have them shut and lock the doors at the polling place while there were still thousands of people outside.


Ok sorry people, rant over

Pa-leez. the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania doesn't even have early voting. We're Old Skool! And to obtain an absentee ballot they're strict and demand proof that you'll be absent from your municipality.

Fortunately my polling place is a quick 2 block walk away and never have I lined up behind more than one other person.

Although Ohio has early voting, I never use it either.  I never have to wait but a mere few minutes.  And I have a polling location a short hobble for me, even on crutches.

Also for Guilhermina, today's national polls are all in:

Of eleven poll releases, three ties, three Obama +1, and one + .4 lead for Romney. Three more have Obama +3.

(CNN) Tie,
(Reuters) Obama +1,
(YouGov) Obama +2,
(ABC/WaPo) Obama +1,
(Pew) Obama +3,
(Zogby) Romney +.4,
(Rand) Obama +3.2,
(Rasmussen) Tie,
(NBC/WSJ) Obama +1,
(PPP) Obama +3,
(Politico/GWU) Tie

If you just do a simple average of these you get Obama +1.25

He owns an iPhone, but for some reason it doesn't function properly and display the sender's name of a text message, and now I guess he doesn't shell out for a data plan (or something). I guess he just likes to look like he has an iPhone to be trendy (or something).

Now that I had time to look up the numbers, I wanted to revisit buginme's statement about West Coast vote-by-mail versus East Coast that doesn't particularly do that. I'm not trying to say which is preferable, but just that all things considered it doesn't amount to much -- the current fiascos in Ohio and Florida aren't due to the superiority of one system over the other, it's that politicians in those two states have screwed things up in an effort to screw over largely urban, largely minority, largely Dem voters.

So let's compare Oregon's voter turnout in 2008 vs. Pennsylvania's, as a comparison of the least restrictive (Oregon was the first vote-by-mail state in the US in 1998) to one that mostly just votes on actual election day. Results: Oregon had a 62.9% turnout and Pennsylvania had 63.7%, a somewhat counter-intuitive result don't you think?

Curious why you chose to compare Oregon with Penn, if you compare Washington State with Penn:

2008 Washington State turnout was 84.61% versus Penn 63%.

Every state is unique, my point is the government should be making it easier to vote not more difficult.  Florida and Ohio and others are clearly suppressing votes fromthe middle and working class.  My issue is that it seems (I could be wrong as I am about as far away from Florida as you can get in this country) but no one is throwing a fit about it. 

Shit, in Seattle people will take to the streets and protest for much less egregious wrong doings.  I dont see any push back from the people down there.  Why?

Romney will win Florida, and it is very likely that it will be due to voter supression.  In the United States thats enough for a revolution in my book.

I chose Oregon because I know (and stated) that they've had the mail in system in place the longest. And per wikipedia (scroll down to "Anaylsis" and then results section there) Washington's turnout was 62.2%, not 84.61%, so you actually had a lower turnout than Oregon.

The issue is partisan shenanigans with polling hours, number of polling places, etc. targeting certain voting areas within a state, not the method of voting. The data would support my assertion.

Before wanting something like compulsory voting or non-in person voting, I would prefer that gerrymandering be resolved -- meaning 10 year redistricting by non-partisan means.

i'm not so sure.
i know that recently in american politics, the republican party has wrapped itself in the term freedom. i consider myself very liberal and the mandatory vote concept goes beyond my comfort zone.
if you don't vote and are unaware of what is at stake you will suffer the consequences.
where would one draw the line on the "exceptions" to the rule?

i DO however support a national set of guidlines/law to prevent the obvious ability of any party to keep people from voting.

And allow the ignorant minority the ability to potentially change the course of American history?  I cringe at the thought of these sheeple being required to vote.

Wolfie

Don't want to spark another debate, but both parties were accused of voter suppression in Ohio.  It could have backfired when the DNC filed suit to suppress military personell from having additional means of voting because of the very nature of their deployments and such.  These are the types of issues you'll hear a group of military veterans sitting around their clubs, drinking beer and bitching about it.

I'd say screw "districts" entirely.  Why not elect US Reps via statewide voting -- same number you have today, but statewide.  The districts make no sense as there is no increase in number of Congress people based on population, so some reps represent far more citizens than others.  This would not only end the need for serpentine redistricting gimmicks, where politicians get to pick voters instead of the other way around, it would ALSO stop the influx of extremists (on both sides) from getting into Congress.  So many districts are so slanted to one party, that all they need to do is pander to their sides extremes and win the primary (and therefore, the election).  We see so many Tea Party members in the House, yet few in the Senate -- why?  Tea Party candidates have a tough time winning at the state level (Can you say, "I am not a witch................")

Just voted and had no wait at all.  Guess there is a benefit to living in rural America.  Kinda nice to walk in and have every poll worker call you by your first name and already verify that you're registered. 

But as my proud Republican cousin pointed out on FB, it'll be busy this evening when all the hardworking people get off work and have that small window of opportunity to vote.   ;D

Its to be expected . My mom called me to tell me that the voting machines were going to rigged to cast ballots for President Obama no matter how you vote . I asked her where she heard this at and she said it was on the "news " . Keep in mind my mom has Alzheimer's , so go easy on her .

Somehow I doubt that Fox News bothers to inform their viewers that the rest home where the (lone, unarmed) New Black Panther showed up is about 95% populated by African Americans, as is the surrounding neighborhood.

Done voting -

took me one hour.. that's it --- and yes, I am in Florida (Miami)

Thing is, during early voting there were only 20 voting sites open

On Election Day, there are 500 sites open...

Thus, I would like to thank all Floridians who voted early and cleared the way for me. Your patriotism is both appreciated and duly noted.  ;)

Stood in line for 90 mins this morning.  In 11 years, I have never waited longer than 25 mins (in 2008).  My precinct is very heavily Democrat (in the 70%+ range), so I think this is a good harbinger for the President.  If turnout is heavy in VA -- I don't see Romney taking it -- nor -- our Senate seat going to the already failed George Allen.

Early results show the Repubs are sweeping  Ohio.  :(


edited to add:

Within a few minutes it went from 58% to 42% in favor of Romney to 65% to 35% for Obama.  Not gonna pay too much attention til precincts report.

My understanding is that this happened in PA (??)
At least that is what they had on CNN.

Yes, that particular one did, but there have been reports of irregularities in other states. So don't get all smug and stuff.

See, I think it was NBC News that said that video was shot in central florida.  I went to youtube and pulled the video, but didn't see MSNBC said PA, until just now. 

In any event, I don't trust voting machine companies claiming intellectual property rights and not allowing their software to be examined.  And, I think we need to move away from our elections being controlled and run by partisans.

I actually advise you to wait until the polls close in CA and then reach for that box of Franzia.

When the polls in Florida closed at 8pm EST, it was known that Obama won the early/absentee vote by about 50,000 votes.  Hopefully, this will be an indicator of how the state will go tonight.

Though sometimes unreliable and subject to change, exit polling in Ohio is lining up with the polling done during the campaign, and nationally it's showing the latino vote going from 9 to 10% since 2008.

It was expected that the 36 point margin Obama had with latinos four years ago was going to increase by potentially 5-8 more points.

NBC projects Chris Murphy the winner of the Senate seat in CT.  All that WWE money didn't work.

I switched back. ;D


Now that is MY drug of choice!  They even served it at the hillbilly bar we visited last night in downtown Thornville.  Well, it was kinda downtown as it has the only traffic light for miles.

Plus, if I'm gonna drink a housewife wine, I'll stick with Ramona.  Love that bugged out look.

Luckily, the 3C's are typically Democrat.  I'd guess any one of those counties has a greater population than most of the SE Ohio counties combined.

It made my eyes bleed, but I checked in on Fox and they are trotting out the excuses. Sandy, not conservative enough, minorities...sorry mittens you've lost Fox.
