When I arrived this morning, there were already a half-dozen people waiting for the polls to open, which they did shortly after seven. Everyone ahead of me was in Dane County (I'm in Green), so I actually ended up being the third voter.

As with last time, the poll workers knew exactly what they should be doing - ask for me name, ask for my address, get my signature, hand me a ballot - and I was on my way out about a minute after voting opened. The only time I've been asked for my ID is last year, when I registered to vote after moving to Wisconsin.

If you're in WI (or certain other states, for that matter) and haven't voted yet, don't wait! Get out and vote!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
