At 45, I was easily the youngest person in line to vote this morning.

Light turnout, and no one under 60. Most closer to 75.

1. At 52, I was the oldest!

Too bad DC voting has no national implications...

2. Younger voters don't get up before noon

Most voters head to work first thing and then find time to vote either at lunch or after work. Hopefully Democratic voters are those workers.

4. Or, you know, younger people at work

A lot tend to go after work rather than before.

7. But he "is" on the ballot

 

They're already talking impeachment. And if these people can't figure that out, they're dumber than I thought. Voting for the GOP is voting for the impeachment of Obama.

5. Not surprised. The vitriol and utter stupidity of politics and the MSM is a total turnoff.

 

I can't blame them.

And it's not like overworked high school teachers are free to teach much about civic responsibility.

If we hadn't voted by mail my kids wouldn't be out voting till the evening. Not to mention people have to work... Let's not start throwing blame around.


This is the most important day in a Democracy and it's not a federal holiday. How messed up is that?

8. "This this is the most important day in a Democracy and it's not a federal holiday."

That's it in a nutshell.

Everyone in my family has had to juggle schedules to vote. My son is filling in for other employees so they can take the time to vote. He will be casting his vote after work.

To clarify my subject line: I direct quoted. I'm pretty sure there should be just one "this".

9. Curious to know where you live, I had the same experience

I live in Antioch, IL. Lol my Congressman is Randy Heltgren, a tea party type. Before redistricting it was Joe Walsh.

I just voted. There was not one person of color or under 50 in there.

My community is a somewhat mixed community. You would not know it by being at the polling place though.

10. At 43 I'd say I was in the middle.

We had young and old in my line.
