I know, but there's such thing as planning and contingency. They're running out of paper ballots they were going to use for backup. I don't understand why they're opposed to extending voting hours though, do you?

Was able to hit the polling place at lunch time. No lines no waiting. In and out in 2 minutes.

Seriously, how can anyone be surprised with the huge turnout today? There needs to be some serious voting reform in the near future, you would think after the mess in 2000 this would have been addressed already. Some places uses machines, others use paper, hanging chads, broken machines, I mean c'mon is it too much to ask to have a standard voting method, and preferably one that isn't prone to breaking down or being hacked or manipulated?

I wrote "Nader" on a Post-It Note and handed it to the nice lady who checked me in - fortunately it only cost $79.95 to vote down here, not like some of the outrageously expensive places up north.

Each state controls its voting method, so, unfortunately, it may be too much to ask.

Online voting. Seriously, near 100% participation basically guaranteed.
