Don't know if this is not right to ask this question, but if you are voting what time will you go? The news show all say will be 2-3 hour wait. Are you going to wait that long to vote? I don't know if I can.

I am planning on getting there half hour before the polls open up. Used to work at the polls until I got frustrated with confusion about candidates. Guess I should have worked again this time, that way I could have voted when I got there.

Our precinct is all rural, the township hall is very small.... if there's a line it will be short, but mostly in the evening its "busy". (20 people waiting)
We will go mid-morning.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I don't care how long the lines are, I will vote regardless. We vote at our parish church, so there will be lots of people to talk with before, during and after voting.

We'll be going as soon as DH gets home from work. Maybe we'll bring dinner with us. I'm babysitting while my friend votes earlier in the day, I'm hoping she'll return the favor.
