  1. I’ve voted already, by way of absentee-ballot. Woo!

  2. Laura (LS) says:

    yep… already voted, too. Early Voting.

    And I’ve already been *horrified* by a friend’s “vote”. She’s in college, and applied for an absentee ballot. All along, she’s been saying, “I hate politics, I don’t care, I’m not going to vote.” I said, good – you don’t know the issues, stay FAR AWAY from the ballot.

    Instead? The absentee ballot arrives at her parent’s house, and she says, “Hey, mom… go ahead and fill it out for me. vote for whoever. I don’t care.”

    So her mom did.

    And I considered just ripping out my hair. Right then and there.

  3. Joy says:

    Yes Laura, some people are so foolish.

  4. SKL says:

    Laura, that’s totally illegal. I am glad I don’t know who your friend is. Grr!

  5. thegoddessanna says:

    My husband voted absentee, and I voted today – dragged the kids out into the rain and mud and everything. First time I ever had to wait too.

    So glad I got it done, but the day is going to take for. ev. er.

  6. Sue says:

    I just got done voting! Yippy! Can anyone explain what the purpose of the electoral(?) college is? I feel like my vote doesn’t really count in the presidential election b/c I’ve got some guy that casts a vote in the electoral college and hopefully he votes the way I want him to, but does it really work that way?? Anyone know? Something to look up I guess. And that is total voting fraud that Laura’s friend did. Some people are just foolish.

  7. Joy says:

    No kidding Goddess. It’s going to be a long day! One good thing is we’re almost done with the stupid commercials. Tomorrow we may see The Clapper and Chia Pets!!

  8. SKL says:

    I finally voted. Now I can’t keep my mind on my work. Ugh.

    I did not have to wait in line at all. I just hope my manual ballot gets read properly.

    Here in Ohio, it’s nice because my vote actually counts. But that means I won’t breathe until the votes are tallied.

  9. K. Trainor says:

    Headed over to yon voting booth as soon as the kids get home from school. 🙂

  10. Elena says:

    I took advantage of early voting here in North Carolina and got it done over a week ago… so I am anxious for everyone else to get to it so we can be done with it!

    Laura… that’s called voter fraud!

  13. Amy Hunter says:

    I was in line at 6:30 this morning and there were already 65 people in front of me. Polls opened at 7:00, and I was out of there at 7:30. I’m glad I got there when I did, because there were about 300 people in line when I left.

    No matter what the results, I’m just glad it’s going to be over!

  14. Joy says:

    I just voted now (6:30 MN time) and didn’t have to wait more than 5 minutes. We took Trinity with us and she got a big kick out of going in the booth with me. They even gave her an “I Voted” sticker since she “helped” me vote.

  15. Amy Hunter says:

    Glad you got in and out quickly, Joy. Cool that you took Trinity. I remember as a young child going with my mom when she voted, and I think that’s one of the reasons I have always voted too. It never occured to me not to vote when I turned 18–I was looking forward to it!

  16. mssc54 says:

    Based on this video don’t you think there should be more than an age and citizen requirement to vote?

  17. Tessa says:

    Wow-no one has said who they are voting for!! I am surprised! Who did everyone vote for? I see Mn is an Obama state, so I take it most of you are too? Go McCain!

  18. Tessa says:

    We are scared for Obama to be president!

  19. Joy says:

    Tessa, the democrats always win in MN!!! We always vote alone, we’re all for McCain. The Erickson’s that is. I think Darryl and Shane were for him too but Shane kept changing his mind but he did vote today at 2.

  20. SKL says:

    I voted McCain, and so did my whole family! Apparently it wasn’t enough. Boo hoo!

    OK, so now what I need to know is, what do I need to chain down and where should I hide my kids’ education fund? You know the dems are planning to take our 401Ks now too, right? Anyone know where I can get a mattress with a secret compartment in it??

  21. Laura (LS) says:

    Update…. I quizzed my friend again, hard. And it turns out that it was the application for the absentee ballot that her mom filled out, not the actual ballot. She filled out the ballot and signed it herself, then her mom mailed it with those of the rest of the family. And all this was done in between other applications for other stuff that she’d been doing. I *guess* I can understand the confusion, especially since she’s one of those “whatever, I don’t care” voters.

    Still ticks me off, though.

  22. Tessa says:

    Eric and I helped persuade them for McCain-Shane/Darryl

  23. nikki says:

    Lets look to 4 years from now…doesn’t President Palin have a ring to it??

  24. Joy says:

    It does Nikki. Palin and SKL with Laura the campaign manager.

  25. Tessa says:

    Yes, I loved Palin! It was crazy and amazing watching history being made wasn’t it!? Eric was so, so pissed. lol We both wanted McCain and are fearful with Obama, but hopefully, he is honest and who he says and will do good for us. It’s amazing thinking when Ben is in High School, he will be swapping his parents stories with other kids from today and 9/11

  26. SKL says:

    As much as I value your endorsement, I think I have written too much online for me to ever survive the liberal media through a presidential campaign. Then again, maybe if I “reinvented myself” and ran on the Democrat ticket . . . .

  27. Jennifer says:

    I’m happy with how MANY Americans voted in this election….I think that’s a fantastic thing! I’m also glad more young people began to vote.

  28. candi says:

    I am just happy that we got a lot of voters, now matter who won. At least we had people vote.

  29. Laura (LS) says:

    Campaign manager? Does that come with free Clairol Hair Color? Because I can see me going VERY VERY GREY with a job like that.

    Then again, it’d sure be an adventure… Sure, sign me up! At least I’d get a trip to Alaska, and I could visit my best friend!
