Voting with The Kid

Okay, I just put up my last post, and within seconds of waking up The Kid jumped out of bed, ran around the corner, jumped out into the family room, scared the pissed out of me, and yelled out at the top of his lungs: "Don't forget about OBAMA!!! We have to vote today!!! Let's go. NOW!"

Soooo, we've already come up with a voting plan to deal with long lines, if necessary, which I don't think we'll need by the time we hit the booths. But, The Kid insists, so we are going to bring a backpack with coloring books, crayons, and stickers, and a snack and a drink. JUST IN CASE.

Update from Aqua Man: 5 of the 6 Voting Machines are not working properly. They are finally using paper ballots to deal with this. By the time he voted, 5 booths opened up and were using paper ballots and 1 booth was electronic. So they were able to get things moving. However, because of the initial long wait due to Voter Machine failures and the number of people in line, many people had to still get out of line, without voting, and head off to catch their train in order to be on work on time.
