    Voted at 2pm,usually no problem parking. Lot was full this time. No line but definately looks like a larger turnout. Which is good methinks.

    Being a bit of a cut-up and a fairly large man,I decided to have some fun. I swagger up to the table and say "I heard there were some Democrats down here that want to 'rassle!" The whole place goes silent and I thought the elderly ladies working the table were going to stroke. Finally the older fella sitting there chimes in with "Just for that wiseass,I'm gonna have to see your drivers license." He got a kick out of it but I think I traumatized the older ladies.

    Edwards approval ratings in NC are in the hole so much that he didnt seek re-election. There is a reason why North Carolina has been favoring Bush the last several months.

    North Carolina almost always goes red. Last election Bush won it by something like 13%. I was simply speaking regarding the exit polls that had it at 51-49%. That's A LOT closer than most people expected. All the analysts/news reporters had it, as M2 stated, solid red.

    I'm actually surprised they don't ask to see everyone's ID.

    He didn't seek re-election because he's on the presidential ticket, prior to that he was running for president.

    I was referring to people saying Edwards would carry the south for Kerry. Maybe notsomuch on the board, but throughout the media(or that was the general consensus when he was selected).

    Edwards political life is on the line tonight. Kerry can at least go back to the Senate.

    In Arizona every time I've voted i've been required to show some form of ID.

    They also verified my signature when I "signed in" that it matched my driver's license. Happens every time.

    Don't get me started on Joe Lieberman. I still say the Dems should trade him for Linc Chaffee.

    They did when we were there. Strange! You had to give your voter identification card or ID...or both if you had both.

    Must be different states have different regs. I've voted in MA, CT and VA. Never been asked. I don't have a problem with asking for ID if you ask everyone for it, but targeting districts based on their political/ethnic/racial mix strikes me as repugnant.

    When I voted today, I didn't have to show them anything. No license, no voter registration card, nada. I gave them my name, and that was it. They didn't even ask me for my address.
