    I voted, took 30 minutes. Voted on computer, printed a copy and it had all the people you voted for. Took it to a scanner and it sucked it into a scanner then kept the paper. Not sure what machine counts the votes. At least there is a scanned copy and hard copy for record. Not sure if the scanner counted the vote or computer. Should have took a photo.

    We seem to be close. I almost requested a "mail-in" ballot this time. I'm just too old school to prefer that when all it takes is to show up and vote. No disrespect for those that choose to vote by mail. There is just something about "the process" of voting in person that really connects with me.


    I do expect the Loeffler seat to be a runoff. (For non-Georgians, that runoff won't be held until Jan.) There were over ten people on the ballot. I'd be OK with either GOP candidate, but I chose Loeffler as I think she has a better chance vs the dem.

    IMO, Perdue truly is a POS and made more money off his classified briefing with Covid (as did Loeffler). Ossof is FAR worse so that vote was easy(ish).

    I am actually voting in person this year as opposed to other mail in ballot years as I really don’t trust the Postal Service system. Had way too many missing pkgs and letters over the years.

    I think it is accepted here but I, like you, don't want to shake the older blue-haired gals working the check-in.

    I can see my polling station from my front yard. Been here 14 years. This morning is the beginning of early voting. Right before it opened, there was a line from the door down one side of the parking lot and most of the way across. Never seen this before. Enthusiasm is high. Hope that is a good sign.

    I voted Biden 2020 because I want this country to turn into Mexico where the bad police are defunded and corrupt and cartel street gangs enforce their own law as they see fit. Much safer that way. I also want to see the rich greedy business owners get taxed to the point where they close up shop or leave the country all together causing more unemployment and higher cost of living. Hyperinflation is good. Argentina and Venezuela got through it. Plus there are too many weapons of mass destruction out there we need to get them off the street for the children, except the children we will abort. They are predominately minorities so who cares. GO JOE!!

    My absentee ballot showed up as "accepted" this morning, a full week after I mailed it. I was starting to worry but figured they county registrar is getting slammed with ballots.

    Voted on Friday. Difference this time was that there was no straight party line option and where I was guided to there were no dividing panels between the machines. So one could easily take a look at the screens left and right. Next to me was a black lady in her fifties. When I was done I took a glimpse. She voted R page after page. Made my day.

    Young people don’t vote. Well, maybe for a Kennedy or an Obama, but not for a 78 and 72 year old white guys.

    My wife and I voted yesterday........... ~45 mins.

    There was a democratic operative, wandering up the line trying to force her sample, democrat ballot to each and every person in line.

    Only 2 people out of about 60-70 took one, the rest turned away from her!

    Don't know if it meant anything, but it was nice to see!

    Both voted RED. and it's now in God's hands! MAGA 2020!
