Posted on 11/06/2012 5:55:58 AM PST by CWW
This will be a running thread for morning anecdotal observations of voting in wisconsin. What are you seeing at the polls?
I’m seeing the first snow of the season out my window.
Got to the poll in Caledonia at 6:30AM and was number 31 to vote.
Probably 200+ people in line when I left.
Feels like a land slide.
Voted at the Cooperstown Town Hall at 7:30 was 64th usually I’m about 8 or 9 very busy!
When you post please tell us whether your region is “red” or “blue”. The rest of us do not have the slightest idea whether a long line is a good thing or a bad thing because we do not know the local politics.

And what makes you think the 200+ people in line braving the cold before sun up aren’t obama voters?
We cannot expect the Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of Socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.

You do realize that “AM” is an abbreviation for “morning”, right?

Was around 120 this morning in my ward in WFB around 7:40. Nice line.
We’re close to 500 absentee votes in our ward alone.
My visual is that we all have painted Braveheart faces today!
I was thinking just Chick Fila t shirts.
But ...I do like Braveheart face paint much better!!!!
Saw this on Twitter: Obama could take an early lead but once the Republicans get off of work things will change.
Drove past two polling locations on my morning commute. Holy Cow! My area of Waukesha County is turning out like I have never seen before. There were more cars at either place than I have ever seen before.
For those who do not know, Waukesha County is the reddest of the red counties in our purple state.
May the heros of Benghazi be proud of how we vote today.
They gave their lives for us, now we need to give our votes for them.
Vote as if the lives of our Military Men and Women depended on it.
The Mrs and I were voters #744 and 745 in Hales Corners!
Tried to go vote at 7:15am but the place was packed so I went back at a bit after 8am. Still busy but not as bad. Holmen, WI -
Hope a lot of voters have switched from O to Romney - I know of four people myself - WI will go for Romney!
Haven’t voted yet, and very likely won’t have much to offer when I do as our rural area is usually pretty quiet (150-250 voters all day).
However, western Wisconsin saw first snowfall today, and it’s one of those wet, sloppy, miserable ones, not the light fluffy stuff. It’s melting fast, but it’s just one of those days when it’s no fun to go outdoors.
Not exactly ground-up glass, but I’ll take it. Some Obama voters might take one look out the window and roll back over and go back to sleep.
One further note: A friend in northern WI called the local GOP to see if he could offer any help, other than phone calling. He asked if he could drive people to polls, anything like that? He was told that they have it all covered. The GOP is well organized, thanks to the earlier recall elections.
This morning, got there at 7:15, as normal. Cars parked in the street, and on the playground grass. Line was out the door by 25 people. Maybe 100 total in line. I was out at 7:45. Voter #258.
This is a precinct that had 2100 votes in the Walker recall (66%/33% for Walker).
Saw my first traffic jam in 13 years at the town hall this morning.
Alot of crabby looking middle age white guys coming and going. Demographicly things looked good...
...thats outside Algoma. Union town.
Will the nastiness of the recall help Romney (opinions)?
In Louisiana, two Republicans are going at each others throats with nasty campaign. One Republican lost his district and was forced to compete with a fellow Republican. But the one who lost his district came from the Tea Party.
Wisconsin Elects First Gay Senator
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 07:04 AM
Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin made history on Tuesday with her election to become the first openly gay U.S. Senator, defeating former Gov. Tommy Thompson in the most expensive Senate race in state history.
Between them, the two candidates raised at least $65 million. Thompson conceded the race at around midnight.
Baldwin’s victory is another blow to Republicans, who needed to make a net gain of four seats to take a majority in the U.S. Senate. Instead, Democrats took over hotly contested Republican seats in Massachusetts and Indiana while holding on to most of the states they already had, including
