No matter what happens in the next 12 hours, it's going to be an historic day.

I'm excited to see how this all plays out.

My high school is off today because it is a polling place.

I'm feeling more annoyed than anything that I'm two months too young to be in this process.

I will be 18 when the new president is sworn in. So, why can I not have a say in who that is?

America sucks.

voting by absentee ballot just isn't the same as actually going to the polls and voting. Regardless, I just want to speed up the day and get to primetime.

I f'ng can't wait to vote for Obama today. I'll be going around 1 or 2 oclock. Should be fun. It always feels really good leaving the polling place...like I've just done something worthwhile with my life. And that's more than I can say about most days. There's also a very palpable sense of patriotism that comes over me. But that doesn't last very long...

I got to my polling place before it opened, and there was already a huge line. I got in line just before 7, and I was done at 7:55. Approx 1 hr to vote in a town of 5500 people with two precincts. Crazy.

I was in line behind one of the town commissioners, and he said they've never had lines like this before. It's a good thing.

I just got back from voting (and Starbucks). I was in and out in 25 minutes. It was awesome.

I would've hit up Krispy Kreme too, but the closest one is about 20 miles away.

I'm proudly wearing my "I Voted" sticker.

And, just in case, I put on my Tibetan prayer wheel jewelry today. Just in case.

I haven't voted yet - I need breakfast and caffeine first. I don't want to have a lack of caffeiene cause me to vote for McCain accidentally.

But I can tell you that Starbucks was PACKED this morning. People definitely heard the free coffee message.

I can see my polling place from my bedroom window - it's a church, and I can see the steeple. I like that it's close enough to walk. I'm bringing a book in case there's a long line.

I voted early last Wednesday. I voted on the day in 2004.

Is it silly to feel like I'm missing out on the experience of voting on the day?

Oh well, I still feel great to have voted.

6PM - whenever someone officially has 270 = me planted on couch in front of TV with laptop in front of me, watching MSNBC and posting here

Not at all. That's why I decided to see if I could vote in person instead of absentee. I was told it shouldn't be a problem, but they emailed me a form to complete and fax in that basically said I was opting out of absentee voting for this election.

I'm going to bring in my unopened absentee ballot along with my registration card, in case there are any problems.

And if there are still problems, then I'll just go home and fill it out and mail it in.

But I like the feeling of voting in person. I feel very patriotic.

Plus, Washington is going to all voting by mail next election, so this is my last chance to do it in person.

I walked to the elementary school, no wait, voted, and came home. I'm now the proud owner of this:



I was #143 in the signature book, just so it's on the record. The only odd thing was that they did not have a ballot box in which to insert the ballot after voting. They said it hadn't arrived. We had to put them face down in this giant pink pouch.

We hold in our hearts the memory of our fallen brothers whose blood stains the very streets we walk today. Also on this night we pay tribute to the leader of our enemies, an honorable man, who crossed over bravely, fighting for what he believed in. To defeat my enemy, I extinguish his life, and consume him as I consume these flames. In honor of Priest Vallon.
