Posted on 11/06/2012 5:38:48 AM PST by CWW
This will be a running thread for morning anecdotal observations of voting in Ohio. What are you seeing at the polls?
If you are in a predominantly democrat district, what does the crowd look like in comparioson with 2008 and in past election years?
I haven’t vote yet this morning (will at lunch) but driving past my polling place saw an overflow of vehicles in the lot and on the street. Reports from two co-workers this morning whom have voted said that their polling places were packed.
Southern Montgomery County.
Portage County (NE Ohio) at 6:30 am - 25 - 30 in line, all voting Romney.
From Ohio friends on facebook.
“30 minute line in Warren county”
“Waited 40 minutes but I voted :)” (Hamilton County)
“Longest line in Okeana voting history!!!!!” (Butler County)
All seem to be CHick-fil-a voters judging by the comments.
The ‘rat vote doesn’t come out until the buses go around and pick up people on their doorsteps.
How do you know they are voting for Romney? Curious... Did you guys all talk about who you were voting for in line?
Clermont County (East Cincinnati), Union Township. I’ve never seen a crowd this large on election day in this polling place. It was PACKED! Clermont County is ROCK-RIBBED Republican turf.
I’m going in about an hour or so. I’ll let you know..
Just got back. It was VERY crowded! My husband said it is a good sign (for Romney). I saw ALL my neighbors...they ALL cofessed to voting for Romney (even the ones who voted Obama in 2008). I have a very good feeling. Our poll watcher was awesome! Some (dem) voters kept leaving lots of material in the booths but he was right on top of it. Folks, this feels like a landslide.
I voted just now in a rat invested area of northeast Ohio. Turnout at my polling place was light. That is good news.
I am in Southern Montgomery County like you and it was the largest voting line I have ever seen at Cox Arboretum. I bet it was an hour wait. In fact, it was so crowded that I left and will return to vote after lunchtime. I think this is a good sign!!
When making reports about your location please indicate the nature of your location (heavy GOP leaning area or heavy Dem leaning, for example)
I know it;s not OH but this is FL and we’re out to vote later but we live in one of the most republican counties in FL, called st Johns county and my wife is out working right now and said she has never seen so many people voting and the lines are immense and trust me tat area is all republican, well republicans outnumber Dem and nonparty combined
Yes, we waited for about 10 minutes and we discussed the election and who we were voting for and why....if there were any Obama voters they were too ashamed to speak up.
Montgomery County is a Democratic area because of the open sore (i.e. little Detroit) that is Dayton, Ohio. However, the Southern suburbs are strongly Republican. Montgomery County went for Obama and Kerry in the last 2 elections.
How do you know whom they are voting for? I voted early in Massachusetts this morning -- long lines. To pass the time while waiting to vote, I was trying to guess who people on line were voting for based on their looks and demeanor, but of course, that's not really possible.
I sure hope you're right, but how do you know?
Very busy at 7:30 a.m. They changed the lines in Delaware, OH from precinct district to last name lines. Supposed to save time, but didn’t really see that.
Touchscreen voting worked fine. Every selection was confirmed on the paper scroll and also at the end before final submission.
No outside campaigners, thank goodness. No obvious poll watchers inside.
Everything went smoothly. Can’t complain.
