**** "I VOTED in MI" ****
Please post what time you arrived and left, your ballot # if you know it, and your polling location.

Me: Arrived at 6:40, left at 7:30; Ballot #44 (36th vote registered in machine); West Bloomfield Precinct #11.

I savored voting for Obama. What an awesome feeling!

5. Voted in Westland
I was the 247th vote at 9:30. I was in and out in about 30 minutes. The poll workers said it was about a hour and a half wait earlier in the day. I think I picked a good time to go. I'm sure it will be very busy again at lunch and after people get off work.

the scan type. When I got to the booth I wondered where the machine was, then I saw it... a pen attached to a string. I loved it. I voted for each Democrat seperately and for MJ and for Stem Cell and for the Tax...

10. Springfield Twp precinct #3 (N. Oakland Co.)
Took about 20 minutes total. It's a pretty rural, predominantly Republican district. Busiest I've ever seen it, but still nothing like the urban centers.

GOBAMA!

:woohoo: :woohoo:
