Live Blogging from my Election Linet

Good morning! I am currently in line to do my civic duty. I'm about 25 mins in, having spent the first stretch of my wait playing Nintendo DS a la America Ferrera.

People are light-hearted, chatting. A twentsomething woman was teaching a fortysomething man how to text using T9 instead of multi tap. A middle-aged woman has theorized these lines dissuade undecided voters from hitting the polls. The bald guy behind me has his left ear pierced with a stud--without irony. The young grad student ahead of me is dutifully grading papers.

This is democracy in action!

  1. It took me two hours and forty minutes to vote this morning. Very chatty crowd...looked like a mostly Obama-loving crowd. Go, Obama, Go!
