    The Vote - How long did you wait in line?

    Just want to know how long it took for you to vote.

    Please no political discussions...

    just a simple answer to a simple question.

    Me: 1 hour and 50 minutes.

    I drove through the lot at my polling place, the line was out the door. I can see the church's roof top from my front porch and I have all day, so I'll try again this afternoon before people are done at work.

    I spent about 10 minutes in line, visited with neighbors, voted and headed to work.

    20 min. Voted about 2 weeks ago. Tennessee early voting is a great idea and it gives rise to the cliche "vote early, vote often."
    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    Yup, Oregon is vote by mail. I haven't mailed it yet, so I need to drive by the election office to drop it off. Typically, lines (of cars) can be long.

    About 10 minutes here as well. We had early voting this year and I think it helped thin the herd out a bit.
