Check in Michigan. How are we doing?
My voting experience was uneventful. How about yours? Any exit poll information? Anecdotal information?

1. I'm a dem in a very red rural area. I was there at 7:00am
they didn't ask for any ID, took me about 5 minutes.

7. Same here...
We must be neighbors! My husband and I voted at noon and there were about 8 of us voting at that time. Again, a very red area so those of us (my husband and I) who didn't vote straight party ticket stood out in the crowd because we were there longer (lol).

2. Here's an article I just found...
about turn out.

http://www.monroenews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20...

I live on the Western side of the state and want to find out what voter turnout has been like in the Detroit area.

8. Exactly. High turnout in Detroit, which has the highest % Dem voting in America...
is always a good thing. :yourock: Too bad there wasn't a blizzard in Western Michigan. :)

4. I voted in Berkley at 10am this morning...
I had to stand in line which was a good sign to me :) A poll worker told me to take off my 'Impeach Bush' button. I told her he wasn't running and that I would not take it off. She let the matter drop.

6. Very routine and uneventful, fairly busy polling location...
but practically no one outside with literature or stickers or ink pens.

9. Polls close at 9:00 on the west side of the State?
I haven't heard shit on MSRNC about any of the races. I am worried about Stabenow.

12. our scanner was not reading yet when i voted...
Edited on Tue Nov-07-06 08:38 PM by Scout
i had ballot #11, and when i turned it in, the scanning machine was not yet ready to read. one of the precinct workers was working on it, and had people put their ballot into the box of the scanner without it being scanned. i don't know what time they got it working, and i don't know if i can be sure that all the ballots cast get counted.

eta: this was at 7:15am in Scio Township, Washtenaw County.
