  1. I'm working from home today so I don't have to drive all the way back here during lunch to vote. Gonna drop my son off at school and head to city hall.

      1. It felt good to fill in that oval. Also, Edgerton is hilariously top-of-the-alphabet heavy. It was 30 deep for A-L but I walked right to the front for M-Z.

        1. We do roads here. After years of using my name, had a sudden panic trying to remember address and determining which table to head to. The lack of line forced me to quickly remember and choose. I also missed not just signing my name and instead was interrogated about "proper identification".

              1. Oh, yes. They sent me an "I Voted" sticker along with my ballot. I saved it and I'm proudly sportin' it today.

                1. What the hell? Socialist California sent no such sticker with my absentee ballot! Where's my free stuff? I was promised free stuff!

                  1. I got one. Guess you should move southward. It's definitely worth moving to get a free sticker once a year, right?

      2. You have options to leave your swamp of nacho cheese state? I’d like to think my neighbors in this state weren’t dim witted, but the evidence strongly suggests otherwise.

        On a different note, I applied for a job in said cheesy swamp.

            1. Very cool. If you get to the point where you're considering something, let me know. That said, perhaps tonight makes up your mind for you... (I really, really hope not, but I'm sick to my stomach right now.)

  2. So my kid has worked as the main GOTV coordinator for the Tim Walz Governor campaign since Labor Day of 2017. Fourth person hired on the entire campaign and two before him have left. I won't tell you to vote for Walz, but think of me. Charlie is still living at home and he needs a permanent job so that he can move out. #getcharlieoutofthehouse

        1. They can issue you one at a local Target.
          Seriously...saw them on a mannequin this morning. Well, not with the MN embroidery...

  3. Also, if you're undecided, I would be grateful if you didn't vote for the guy who says he has a secret list of my colleagues (and, who knows, possibly me) he plans to immediately fire if elected.

    1. I had to walk my parents past Muslim antipathy to read the background on the other guy, but that swung them.

  4. I was vote #86 at 8:15am. I would say people in my small town have been getting out and voting. Im looking forward to Election Judge this afternoon.

    1. Wow.

      #110 at 10:45. There's 3 precincts feeding into our machine, total population thereof is ~1,100. So 10% of our population had voted already.

  5. One of the funniest things about election judging to me is that organizations will come and bring food for the judges , but only for the judges of the same political party. For example, we had Republican pizza and Democratic sammiches. We just put everything in the back for whoever, but I always think it's weird.

    1. Wow, that's weird. (Also, I guess I didn't realize election judges had a party affiliation, though I suppose and equal number from each party keeps things fair...)

  6. I was voter 775 at my precinct at around noon. There were ~2600 votes cast here in the last midterm. The people there trended younger than I’ve normally seen. I’ll blame the recreational cannabis bill for that.

        1. If I didn't think I was going to die, then no. (Also, I don't have anything here. It was a one time thing a buddy offered.)
