    There was plenty of free parking at the First Baptist Church on Monument Avenue in the city. Another unusual thing people where in and out in no time. Who knows, maybe even a lost soul or two were saved as well.

    One precinct in south Richmond report over half of the 1200 registered voters had cast their ballot by 10 am.

    I was surprised to see both electronic and paper ballots being cast at my polling station. I was like WTF? For the last 8 years it's all been electronic - not that I'm a fan of electronic without paper receipts which is a whole other issue, but I was surprised at the change. Needless to say we had a few issues out here. I couldn't OC because my polling place was a school and I didn't want to get into any bru ha ha, but I did use my Utah non-resident CCW card to identify myself, lol. That took a few minutes of explaining and then I finally got the okay from someone to use it.



    Utah non-resident CCW - it's everywhere you want to be, hehe. Thanks for the class Pourshot - money well spent.

    GF voted in Henrico w/touch screen machine which highlighted her vote incorrectly 3 times - different candidate each time - before it understood the correct choice - who got her vote, who knows.

    I will never believe Obama won legit. Too much crap going wrong in his favor (and not just voting problems, but fraud, etc.)
