Just posting to state that I voted at the Pay Less grocery store on West Sagamore in West Lafayette.  The line there was 45-50 minutes long.  Election officials stated that lines were shorter at the other Pay Less markets and downtown.  

P.S.  If you own or work at a grocery store, strongly consider inviting an early voting location to use your facilities.  Not one voted left without looking at all the expensive magazines and books, popping some purchase in the cart, or buying a piece of candy to celebrate the civic sacrament.  Pay Less will make out like bandits while Wal-Mart and March go without, and that's a good thing.  

So, how was early voting in your part of the country?

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.

    -- there's a voting booth in the Town Clerk's office.  It felt great to fill out the ballot -- I checked about 10 times to make sure I had really voted Obama/Biden, and not inadvertently for someone else.

    There was no line when I went in the morning. (It's nice to be retired and able to do things on your own time schedule.) I have vision issues and they helped me vote. I didn't mind letting my helper know I was voting straight Democrat. Everyone was friendly and it was a nice experience. I love early voting.
