I am in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles so I know that my vote won't swing the election but I love to hear about people's experiences so here is mine.
I woke my hubby up about 6:45 which he did not appreciate. He would have preferred waiting until after work, but I was too excited to wait. We got to the polling place at about 7:15 and it took us a few minutes to find street parking. I got into line while hubby parked. We waited about 25 minutes. There ended up being two lines for the two precincts at that location. We were at the green table. There were three people with a book each where they checked us in, checked us off, had us sign and gave us our ballots. We had our sample ballots filled out and there weren't too many races, eleven propositions and three county measures. It took me about 2 minutes and my hubby twice that time. I brought my completed ballot to the poll worker, he put it through the machine and gave me my receipt once it was accepted along with my I voted sticker. He thanked me for voting and I wished him a good day. The poll workers were cheerful and friendly.
We were numbers 32 and 33 at our table so I'm going to guess that about 70-80 folks had voted by 7:45 am, 45 minutes after the polls opened. There were 6 booths for each precinct and they stayed pretty full during the 25 minutes we were there.
What was your experience?
