Here, in my (relatively affluent) little corner of Southern California, I just got back from voting.
No hassle finding my polling place - same place it's been for the last 9 years.
No lines (I had to wait 3 minutes for my ballot).
No poll watchers.
No "True the Vote" goons.
No voting machines - just a paper ballot meant for a bubble reader, and a black felt-tip pen, filled out in a cardboard folding voting booth.
No problem sussing out how to vote on California's extensive list of ballto propositions - the state voter guide, Ballotpedia.com and local Democratic Party provide excellent background materials.
In and out in 20 minutes.
Now why can't everyone's experience be so simple and straightforward? The fact that some people have to wait hours in line, and face the threat of being hassled by poll "watchers" means that the Constitutional guarantee of Equal Protection is being violated for some every time a Presidential election comes around. It's not just un-American, it's anti-American, and it damned well ought to stop. Federal elections should follow federal voting criteria so that petty little state apparatchiks can't subvert peoples' rights.
I hope your voting experience is a good one, and that we all get to celebrate tonight.
