    All I had to give was my address today. No ID card, no registration card. Didn't even check my signature.

    That's odd cause in Ohio they aren't supposed to ask for either.

    I got to my polling location at 0605 and was about the 50th person in line. By 0630 there were at least 400+ in line. I have been voting for 28 years and have never seen anything like it.

    I heard some people were told that they could come back tomorrow to vote because voter turnout was so high.

    TM,

    Did they actually ask for them, or did you offer them?

    Just curious, because I'm sure we had the same people at the same table. I think you guys voted about an hour before I did.

    So I'll share this story. This was my girlfriend's first time voting in a Presidential election. So I took off a late lunch today and went with her to the Junior High to go vote.

    The lines were incredible. This is my fifth time going to that spot for voting, and the wait time was well over 90 minutes.

    In both 2000 and 96 I was able to walk up, wait no more than 10 minutes and vote. And I went about the same time 12 to 1 ish every time.

    The area is heavily Republican, and with all the "W" and "Bush/Cheney" bumper stickers all over the parking lot, the place looked like GOP convention.

    Impressive to see that many folks out voting today. Can't imagine what it will look like in afew hours when folks get off work.

    But she voted and we left. So much for my quick late lunch.

    I got lucky and only had to wait a half hour. I drove by a different polling place, and it had a line out to the road.

    No ID check on me either. Just had to tell them my address.

    We had to show one form of ID, then they asked us to verify our address and then they asked the month you were born.

    As of 5:00pm, Zogby is calling Kerry with 311 votes. He has Kerry winning Florida, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

    Didn't see Edwards on the news here in Charlotte.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Did Zogby account for all the Buchanan vote in South Florida?

    Joking aside, you'd think after the networks had their credibility shattered last time folks would be a little more hesitent to start calling winners in states where it's close. But that's just me.
