I voted early!

Just had to tell somebody.

Edited to add: even though I didn't have to vote in my precinct since it's early voting, I went to the one closest to my home, in the Southpark area. A lot of Republicans. I didn't talk to people much, because I don't do well in crowds, but I listened. Based on all the people carrying the blue ballot guide the Democrats were there handing out, I'd say there was a surprising amount of support for Democratic candidates for such an upscale area. I did hear some unpleasant comments about poor people and I had to keep my mouth firmly shut.

2. I did too!

An early voting site (and my polling place) is actually in the building where I work, so I can see folks coming and going. I'd say female voters out numbered male voter 8-1, at least amongst those folks that I saw. Of course it's early in the process, but there was a steady stream of voters for most of the day. I think there are three other early voting sites in my county.

4. Even rich white people are fed up with Trump and the NCGOP.

I would LOVE to be a fly on the way up in Huntersville after the toll road debacle McCrory and his cronies rained down on one of their solid Republican areas.
