I did it -- my first presidential election as a US citizen.
I went to one of the early-voting locations in my neighborhood; on Monday, the first day of early voting in Texas, there were lines all the way out the door. Today, however, was more like a steady stream. I didn't wait long at all, probably because I voted at a time when most people were at work.
The voting machine (which always freaks me out a little) worked less sluggishly than in 2010, and I was in and out of there quickly.
Interestingly, the choices for Texas Board of Education included two acquaintances of mine: Rebecca Bell-Metereau for the Democratic Party and Irene Scharf for the Green Party. Irene was the librarian at my first teaching job, and I have a special fondness for librarians. However, party loyalty won out, and I went with Rebecca. Other than that, no-brainers all around.
So, have you voted yet? If so, what was it like? How many people were there, and what were the demographics?
Are these your first elections? If no, when did you first vote and who was the first presidential candidate you voted for?
My first-ever elections were in 1983, and I voted for Hans-Jochen Vogel for chancellor (Helmut Kohl won).
