Had a weird experience driving to my nearest post office and discovering that 2 of the 3 drive-by mail boxes were gone and last remaining one had no pickup schedule on it. I was so bothered by it that I went to a different location to mail my ballot.

Call me paranoid but it was all about peace of mind.

Not unless I want to stand in line for four hours. Too hard on my arthritis.

I suppose I could have requested an absentee ballot, but really on Election Day I don't have to wait at all, or wait in line for only a few minutes.

California (and Los Angeles) always has long ballots and there are some down ballot issues and judgeships that I still need to nail down.

There's less than 400 people in my rural township so there's never any line and it's only 1 mile down the road - a nice walk if the weather's cooperating.

Virginia started early voting the last week of September.

Didn't want to take any chances of something unforeseen happening!

Proudly voted straight Dem naturally and it was made easy because I think Pritzker has done an excellent job as has Tammy Duckworth.

I just meant compared to other states we're not really early. Where I vote, the lonest I've ever waited was the 2012 election, oddly enough.

Poll workers. I came fairly late in the afternoon and the Republican said that I was 100-something to have shown up. I sure hope that attendance is better for the Midterms, though I'm flummoxed at all the Zeldin signs I see around here. I'd never heard of him, had to look him up, and I'm paying attention. Do all these people with signs actually know who he is??

This county went 2 to 1 for Trump in 2020. We'll see how it goes this time.
