Did you vote today?

Don't forget to go out and represent us firearms owners at the polls!
I'm hoping to see a lot of YES votes here!
Its important for us, as a group, to make the voices of firearms owners heard...
whomever we each support as individuals.




I do NOT need to know WHO you voted for!

You might want to leave work a bit early to avoid the lines... I never saw such a line as there was today at 9am. I'd imagine much more people will be there after work.

Hell No I'm not gonna vote today! Why bother?





I beat the rush and voted Saturday! :neener:

Funny story...gun club meeting last night had an NRA-ILA board member in attendance that stood up and preached to the choir about voting and who to select for about 20 minutes. When he was done, someone asked for a show of hands to see who had already voted...all but 3-4 of the ~40 people in attendance had already done their duty!

I went 20 minutes before the polls opened and there was a line already.

The only votes I'm talking about were yes on 47 and yes on 48 (Colorado)

I voted last week. Wanted to make sure that neither rain, nor snow, nor stalled auto, nor broken leg would keep me from voting against the liberals.

Sure wish I had someone to vote FOR besides that pretty lady moose hunter who acutally support charities and poor people with her OWN money! The old guy and wife who actually provides a home for his poor sister but won't use it as a politicaly issue is ok but...

Oh well...maybe next time.

As NWGunner said, here in Washington it's almost exclusively mail-in now. I filled out my ballot a week or so ago, but mailed it last night so I could feel as though I had participated 'on the day'.

Not yet, so I voted "No". You really need more choices in these polls.

Yep, just got back, was great no line. Skipped the work crowd and everyone in our area apparently did early voting. It is out of my hands now.

Yeah, apparently I needed one that said "I voted 13 days ago" :neener:

I thought about one for those who were going to vote, but didn't yet... but I figured a few people would check that, but not bother following through (actually voting) later in the day.

You should've had an option for "absentee" and "early voting."

Being in college 400 miles away from my polling place makes it kinda hard to get there on election day.

But, if it makes you feel better, I HAVE voted "in-person" before for local & state elections when I was in-town on the various election days.

In any case, about to head out to drop off my ballot with the town, I don't stand in lines.

I voted yesterday and only had to wait 5 minutes! Plus I heard a local farm store is giving 15% off if you bring in your "I voted" sticker. I'm going to see if that applies to their dusty boxes of ammo in the corner, it probably won't though.

Yes, I voted on a Provisional Ballot after drving to 3 polling places to find my name on a list, then gave up at the 4th. When I got home, I checked the Maricopa County Recorders Site to see if I'm registered still. It gave me my Voter ID number so hopefully my vote will count.

Political thread? I created the poll to see if anyone voted that Diet Dr. Pepper tastes more like regular Dr. Pepper. Wait... you don't mean to say the presidential election is today, too? :eek:

And to keep it gun related, I hear that Diet Dr. Pepper is excellent for cleaning blackpowder rifles! :neener:

I voted, but not for the presidential race (no one worth voting for imho). I did however vote on both state proposals, County Sheriff (not for the incumbent, who almost always slaughters the opponent, so I hope that doesn't come back to haunt me if i ever decide to get into law enforcement), County Prosecutor and various Schools Board of Regents. Also in spite of my libertarianism, i voted to give veterans some money for school, because I figure i'm going to be taxed anyways, why not let it go to something worthwhile?

PS YES, I'm KIDDING. Voted (once) in person, and was in and out in less then 5 minutes. Most of that was spent entertaining my daughter by letting her push buttons before I took control and undid her choices. Apparently, she's a Green Party supporter :uhoh:

How could it be otherwise? Especially after all my rantings regarding American Freedom! I voted with my heart to America. I hope other Americans did the same. Freedom ain't FREE, but a vote costs nothing. America's Freedom, at a cost of nothing bespeaks of FREEDOM. I served in the Military to assist our freedom to vote. If I could be young again, I'd do the same scenario! I hope you voted as I did for the same candidates, but because you possess free minds to date, vote with your heart because I fought for your freedoms to do so. cliffy
