Who has voted?

Maybe the mods can make this a sticky.  I don't really care how you voted, but feel free to share if you so desire.

Texas has started early voting this week.  My wife and I took advantage of this today.  For whatever reason, Governor Abbot has declared that there can be one and only one early voting location per county.  My county has about 100K people, and the voting took 1.5-2 hours.  It was an exercise consisting of standing in one spot for about a minute, moving 6 feet, lather, rinse, repeat.  But, we have done our civic duty, and I'm glad this one's in the books for me.  

I promise I'll only vote once this election cycle. :)

For the record, I voted an all republican ticket.

    No early voting for me. Don't trust the mail and sure as heck don't trust my ballot sitting shelved somewhere only to be deposited in some random dumpster. My ballot is filled out and ready to be dropped off on election day.

    Early voting in my county starts Monday.  I will be going to the Supervisor of Elections office to vote early in person, no mail-in ballot for me.

    I'm voting on election day. Got to 'chew the fat' with some old friends of mine at the polling place and make fun of the opposition. It's been a time honored tradition here for a long time. I don't stir the pot none, though; I'm a little  o:) don'tcha know. :D

    I have to vote early as I am working 12hr on election day. Was going to today, but there are some Ohio Supreme Court spots to vote on that I need to look up the candidates

    In my area there are quite a few retirees and many can’t handle standing in line for long periods of time.  Several brought chairs with them and most people in line just asked them to get in front of them in the line or to just go sit in the shade and we’d save their place in line and get them when their turn came up.  It is a privilege to help other folks exercise their right.
    When we voted, there was an elderly gentleman behind us who was having difficulty standing.  A number of us ahead of him found him a chair, and insisted he go ahead of us.  I have no idea how he voted, but I was glad to help him all I could.

    Took my absentee ballot and dropped it in the box on Friday.

    I applied for the ballot quite some time back. Checked the website to see it was supposedly mailed out on Sep 12th. Gave it a couple of weeks and called the office to find that it was supposedly actually mailed out on the 23rd. Was informed that they come from Arizona so I should expect it to take about 14 days. I think it was actually 12.

    Dropped off our ballots yesterday. Probably a useless activity, since I'm highly suspicious my wife and I cancelled each other out.

    I’ll vote on Election Day. MS doesn’t have early voting other than absentee. Not many in my precinct so I doubt I have wait. I’ll be surprised if it takes as long as 10 minutes

    Voted today in person. In and out in five minutes! KAGA!
    There's a lot of constitutional amendments one the ballot, so I researched everything before I made my decisions!! Sometimes the way they are worded can be confusing, like they're written by a lawyer!!  B)

    There was an issue on the ballot for the primaries in Texas about state income tax.  The way it was worded was confusing, and just the opposite of what one might expect it to say.

    Wife and I voted today. I usually just vote on election day but it is harder for the wife with her work hours. We had to wait for the line of people, 1 person, to go in before we could.

    I usually just stop by the school on the way home from work and vote, but the last couple years i have voted early.  Only had a 10 minute wait when we went.

    That hurricane in the Gulf is expected to move through the South on a NE track and cause lots of rain in the TN Valley, Alabama, and Mississippi on election day. Might affect turnout a good bit. Since most of East TN, AL, and MS is rural and farming folk it won't affect us much; farmers are used to working in nasty weather so it won't affect their turnout to vote much at all. Might keep the snowflakes and other Liberals inside, though. They fear melting in a rainstorm. I got a good umbrella!

    Checked to see if my ballot was accepted and so far the website doesn't say. I'm gonna have to give them a call.

    I was off work on Monday which is why we voted that day. We had ice and sleet and snow, schools were closed. I figured town would be a little slow but I couldn't tell the difference.
