Posted on 11/06/2012 7:14:17 AM PST by Eccl 10:2
And please urge your friends to do the same. We have to send a message and winning the popular vote by as much as possible is a big part of it.
Or, I forgot to add, even if you are in a deep BLUE state - VOTE VOTE VOTE !!
I doubt we have ANY FReepers that aren’t voting.
My husband and I live in Nebraska and voted with a mailin ballot two weeks ago. Take nothing for granted and crush the evil, lying, corrupt opposition.
Me and my family will vote no matter what, in NEW YORK, and our vote doesn’t even count - so get everyone you know out there to vote!
Try and STOP me!
Voting AND Praying today.
God bless you and God bless America!
Voted here in Texas, if Romney doesn’t carry Texas by at least 20 points, it will be a shock.
MA is a blue state. Huge turn out numbers so far. It will be very close. Obama will be crapping his drawers.
I’m in Upstate NY. Voted a straight Republic ticket. It’s not ALL about the Presidency.
Voted two weeks ago!...Today Obongo hits the brick wall!
Voted here in the VERY RED state of Ga!!
My wife and I voted here in Pa just outside of Reading around 8:00 A.M. The polling people said that they already had over 160 people vote—numbers that they don’t typically see until mid-afternoon. I think Obama is going to get his @ss handed to him and I pray we can get rid of the mushmouthed d0uchebag Senator Bob Casey.
Just voted in deep blue Illinois, albeit in deep red Dupage county. Just called in a complaint, the driveway of the school was filled with Rat signs.
We live in a very small conservative town in S.E. TN, (pop.500), and voted this morning. My part of TN is very red but I actually had to stand in line for 15 minutes. We NEVER have to stand in line. The main conversation in the line was “we have to get this idiot out of the White House”. LOL. I invited the man in front of me to Free Republic. He is Tea Party as most of us are but didn’t know about F.R. He said that the best President of his lifetime was Reagan. Mine too.
My daughter got up early and tried to vote this morning after waiting in line for 30 minutes and she finally makes it up to the table to verify her I.D. and of course they could not find her. She had to go to work so she left so I told her to go back after work tonite because apparently they did not receive her married name yet on their list even though she looked it up last nite on the computer and it was there. And they told her to go to another line which was even longer. How frustrating. Oh and this was Texas.
voted here for R/R in red south dakota...hubby too :)
Same situation here, but I feel really good anyway! My vote is a lethal weapon.
Voted here in Redneck Country,,,South Alabama.Wife and MIL voting later.Got 16,000 employees that I tried to get to vote.Seems the State does’nt allow chickens to vote.Not quite as Redneck as I thought.
Voting Don’t worry - People should make sure like minded friends vote as well.
Tennessee has a lot of Conservative Democrats that have been voting GOP for many, many years. The Democrat party does not reflect their values so they cross over on election day in the General election. Now, sometimes they do vote Democrat in the local elections because the Democrat local politicians are rather conservative.
“I doubt we have ANY FReepers that arent voting.”
I beg to differ, but there have been numerous “I’m not voting for Romney because he’s not a “staunch” conservative..blah blah..” types prancing around here in all their regal royal splendor for quite some time.
Useless as teats on a boar...
Where are they today?
They deserve to be chided, not lauded.
I live here also. The only difference in my vote is that virtually all Republican candidates are also backed by the Conservative party so I vote that line just to make sure they know where a large part of their support comes from.
`Preaching to the choir’ thread.
Here’s a line I like to use with aggressive Dem tools outside the polls:
“Yeah, we already know who we’re voting for but in close cases (e.g. Joe Blow (D) for county surveyor) we’re voting against the candidates who harass us as we try to vote, and your guy is Blow? OK that’s great, thanks—have a nice day!”
Dice enter polling place.
And even if you’re in a deep BLUE state vote vote vote. Pres race (you never know...) but also in many cases
Sen., Gov., Congress, local races, ballot questions
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.
[Pass it on.]
I’m from western New York State and I voted at 6:55am, while on my way to work. There was a lot of people at the polling place. My younger son who’s going to college in Indiana sent in his absentee ballot a few weeks ago. My wife, daughter and older son will be voting after work today. I’m pretty sure they’re all voting for Romney/Ryan, as I did.ocus/f-news/2955508/posts
I live in a 2200 person small town in deep blue Connecticut. I showed up to vote at about 8:30 and for the first time ever I had to look for a parking space and wait in line to vote. I have had a feeling for a long time that Connecticut could be a surprise electorally; the massive turnout could be a clue.
If I wore a sport jersey with this on the back, would they boot me from the polling pace:
Still picking the broken glass out of my front here. :-)
Vote like you’re the only one doing it.
Proud VOTER in the only RED STATE of Oklahoma, got ‘er done. Oklahoma will not be the only RED STATE this time, I betcha!!!!!!
My wife and I just returned from voting, we have voted here for the 18 years of our marriage and I for forty years at the same volunteer fire station. In the past we have often parked right in front of the door and on a busy day just a few feet away. Today we had to walk 150 ft. from where we parked, there were cars parked all along the shoulders of the road on both sides as well as filling all the regular parking spaces. We were outside in line for ten minutes or more before we got inside the building. This is a very small precinct in a rural area. The poll manager is a prominent land owner whose family has been on the same property since before the revolutionary war. He has been poll manager the whole forty years I have voted here and he said that he has NEVER seen it so busy! I don’t think this is happening because of enthusiasm for Obama.
Then you ARE voting for Obama. Write-ins mean nothing.
In Washington, a very blue state. But live in a very red area on the eastern side. All ballots here are mail-in.
Hubby and I voted straight Republican ticket. Senate will probably be Dem (Cantwell). Gov race looks to be a toss up.
Also voted NO on “gay marriage”, but I suspect it will pass. I’m sorry, but I don’t give a crap what the law says, a true real marriage is between one man and one woman.
Three more HISPANIC votes and one (me) ASIAN vote all for Romney here in a heavy red portion of Maricopa County in Arizona (Phoenix suburb). My husband and I and our 23 and 24 year old sons - Republicans all. The 17-year old wanted so much to vote (Republican)but one more year for him. Emphasizing our ethnicity only because democrats just see us as those ethnicities and how they can use it, and assume things about us. And they would be dead wrong.
There was a steady stream of voters, but not more than 10 in line at one time.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO VOTE regardless of the state politics where they live...
VOTE LIKE YOUR COUNTRY DEPENDS ON IT~it does!!!
There are actually some FReepers who have stated that they are not going to vote?! Unbelievable! Hope and pray they feel moved to get their duffs off the couch and exercise the privilege so many have fought for***!
***Need to make up for those oversees ballots that are not going to get their overseas ballots counted.
Yeah, there is at least one. I even sent them a Private message to implore them to vote. Oh they are all over the threads, but not voting....:(
I should add the poster to whom I am refering is supporting Romney,hopes they win, but is “sitting this one out” ?! Go figure?!?!
I worked last night, got off at 7 am. It generally takes me about 30 min to get home. We drove past one polling place on the way home and there was a huge crowd there. I had my car pool drop me off at my polling station because there was no parking to be found. It was a much bigger crowd than 2010. Alabama is deep Red and I believe we will be contributing heavily to Romney’s popular vote.
I doubt we have ANY FReepers that arent voting.I'm all ready to head to the polls first thing tomorrow! My neighbor is an Obama voter, but he's a nice guy and is giving me a ride.
Check via the Internet.
I wanted to read the full amendments before I went to the polls and Googled "Sample ballot Gwinnett County Georgia" and it sent me to a page at the Georgia Sec. of State where I typed in my First Initial, Last Name, County and date of birth.
It verified I was currently registered and gave me my polling place and then gave me the sample ballot.
A write-in vote for a candidate who has no chance of winning is just a gesture of protest at best,and pretty darn stupid if it helps elect another candidate committed to destroying your freedoms.
but keep feeling all smug and superior.
We all early voted two weeks ago
Wish this election result would be up to Tn voters
Republican party is likely to have a super majority
after today in Tennesse...a very RED state too.
I voted in NJ with my two sons and my husband voted early this morning. Go Romney/Ryan!
