    Election Day 2012 Thread



    Well here it is.

    If you're like me, you'll be geeking out in front of the TV, remote in hand and bouncing between the various news outlets.

    Are the polls right and Obama has a razor thin win? Or are the GOP claims of over sampling accurate and this one goes to Mitt?

    Virginia will be the tell tail sign tonight. Polls there close early at 7:00 PM EST. If Obama has a lead after the western part of states results come in, that will be the first indication that the poll numbers are accurate. If Mitt starts to pull away around 10pm, then the GOP has hope.

    I gotta say all the posters in this forum, scout and freepers ared the most informed
    voters in the country. I really enjoyed the RCP thread, best one we've ever had.

    It's definitely up there as one of them. Top 3 for sure.

    The town of Dixville Notch, NH was the first town to vote at midnight according to
    tradition of the last 40 years.

    Both OBY and Mitt got 5 votes each. OBY won the first town with another tiny NH town
    23-9.

    Voting is heavy in FLA. Long lines.

    I'll be going to lunch around 12:30 and then vote. I used to hate the
    long lines in Bel Air after getting up a 6 am coming home at 6:30
    and standing in line for 1.5 hours. I hated it.

    But recently Bel Air added more polling places and there were no
    lines in last several elections Of course it's easier now that Im
    retired and everyone at work at noon.

    I'm in Utah for work and there is a massive line outside the senior center next to my hotel.

    It's either a polling place or a free buffet.

    I'm going out on a limb. Utah for Romney.

    BTW - what part of Utah are you in?

    South Jordan.

    Yeah, I'm going to give this state to Romney. It might be close though.

    By the way, unconfirmed reports of Black Panthers in Ohio now.

    This pisses me off sooo bad.

    I don't think I'm a bad ass by any stretch of the imagination, but I wish I was there!

    That makes me sick. I'm glad the Seals are going to handle it.
