Well Doug, the funny thing about that old joke is that I had never heard it, but this AM I was thinking that very though without intending it as a joke.
On the other hand it will take all night to finish stuffing the ballot boxes in some inner city wards. Not that it’s going to do them any good.

I originally told my supervisor that I was going to try to vote at 7 AM, so I’d be a bit late coming in. But as things developed yesterday afternoon, we had to have an important meeting this morning to decide something important, so I bit the bullet and came in at my usual time (7 AM).
So I voted after work. I hate having to live life as a stereotype.
BTW, my polling place was the busiest I’ve ever seen it. I had to hunt for an empty seat at a table to fill out my ballot (about 8 seats to a table). Usually, the pace is such that you have a table to yourself.
Alabama’s a lock for Romney. Heck, most of the state and local positions on the ballot had a Republican, with no opponent.

I just got in from an 18+ hour day at the voting place–it’s not just a precinct anymore since anyone living in the county can vote at any of the locations. We had nearly 1500 voters come through today.
The long part was the reconciliation part of the new system, but we finally got it on the button. I and one assistant were looking at maybe 3;00 to count each ballot and check each permit against the computer before a subtle breakthrough that reconciled each category exactly. If there is a next time, I and my crew will have it down like a science.
