How long did you have to wait to vote?

It was over 3 hours for me, and I got to the polls around 8 a.m. this morning.

only about a minute or two. Then again, I was off from work today so I went at an off time (around 1pm). I'd imagine that before and after the work day will be much busier.

Left work at 10:00 and got back to work at 10:25. (it's about a 9-10 minute round trip to the polls).

Aren't these all just part of your voting story? - http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...hreadid=393297

Left work a little after seven, and had to wait maybe fifteen minutes.

Same. Walked up to the counter, gave them my name, walked up to the machine, pushed a few buttons... was out in maybe 4 minutes.

It took longer to park than it did to vote, and that's only because I pulled into the wrong lot at the school. There were plenty of spaces in the other lot.

You should have seen the school. The entrances were lined up like a Florida punch card!

About 2 minutes, only because some jerk in front of me was at the wrong polling place and for some reason he needed the exact latitude and longitude of the polling place that was just down the street. Once I kicked his ass I was done in less than 5 minutes, voting and all.

About an hour. Luckily, I have Tetris on my cell phone.

25-30 minutes. My district (of the 3) was the 2nd busiest. The other one looked like an hour wait. And this at 2:30-ish.

I'm home sick today. Left my house at 1. Sat back down at my computer at 1:15. And most of that was filling out my registration card.

I had no wait. Walked in, got pointed to the right table, signed my name, voted.
