    My sister went to vote this morning and the machine stated she had already voted, which she hadn't. Some poll watcher tried to challenge her, but she bucked. She went to the registrar's office and got it taken care of. Don't be intimidated!

    In and out no problem. I'm sure most of the problems will spring up in areas run by the Democrats. They always do. They just love blaming others for their incompetence. Hmmmm... sounds like a president I know!

    @truthhurts, funny how voter suppression, fraud and oh Tagg Romney owns voting machines in a swing state and republican governors shortening early voting are democrats complaining. Lol the funny thing is that you guys actually believe the sh*t you are shoveling which figures because that's the guy you are backing!

  5. NY Voter

    My wife and I went to vote this morning. We both had our voters registration and all of our documentation in case. I was given my ballot no problem, but my wife was asked to show several forms of ID and hassled more than anyone. I found this strange since NY is not even an ID law state.

    No problem voting, but the challengers are certainly geared up. I have never seen them so intrusive before. Why can't we have a peaceful non-partisan voting process like the rest of the developed world?

    Most of the issues are happening in the democratic counties how convenient for the Republicans...... its called voter supression. in 2012 why can't i get a receipt for who i voted for because the voting machine is run by the private sector.

    I voted this a.m. before I came in to the office today and when I voted, I voted for all of the following:

    1) My son, (who was fighting for his life this time last year) and thanks to ObamaCare, he was given the proper treatment; while those thugs Willard, Rubio, etc., want to take healthcare away from us while asking for sympathy for their family members;
    2) All the dead, injured and current people serving in the military who Willard stepped over to get to this day;
    3) All the people who LOST their jobs, pension and healthcare due to Willard and Ann's greed;
    4) All the teachers who really work hard for a living and just want a fair chance;
    5) For my neice and all women who don't want a man telling us what to do with our bodies.

    To borrow a phrase from the late James Brown: I FEEL GOOD.

    Go Obama!

    Guy in line had an Obama/Biden button. I mentioned to the person at the registration desk, but nothing was done.

    What is wrong with FL??? It should take no longer than 30 minutes to vote at a peak hour. 4 hour lines should make FL election officials resign.

    If you can't suppress with voter ID laws, then send only 5 voting machines to serve 30,000 people.

  15. al in memphis

    No problem voting, I just could not remember if there was a candidate who ran a campaign without mis-information and mis-leading statements.
    So i wrote my brother name in.

  16. Bex in MN

    My husband and I had to re-register – low and behold even after verifying we were registered to vote a few weeks ago our voting registration information was missing! Also just as we put our ballots ready for voting and the machine broke, so the election offical there was mixing counted and uncounted ballots... gives me little faith in the system. MN has an important amendment votes this year so it is important for me to have my vote counted.

    My mom who has lived in the same house, same county, same district for 25 years and voted for the last six presidents had to regester because her voter information was was lost as well!

    I had no problem in Oklahoma. Different rules than Texas where the motto is "Vote early, Vote often". One voter in Texas has not missed an elction since 1843.

  18. Wake up People!

    No problem voting this morning. I got to the polls about 7:05 and I was out about 7:25. Showed my voter registration card and didn't need my license at all. Of course I've been voting at the same location for years. Huge turnout.

    OBAMA 2012!

    I waited in line for FOUR HOURS this morning to vote. Only one of the four voting machines at the voting center worked.

    CNN, you are reporting 2-3 hours lines in Florida, why are you not reporting that the Repubs closed hundreds of precincts this year?? We voted at Rush Hour this morning in Raleigh and finished within 15-20min. NC has 3000 precincts expecting an additional 4M voters or 1300 per precinct.Obviously, Florida has a much higher # per precinct?? Report about it!!

  22. Broken Polls

    My Brother went to vote in Newburyport, MA and they said the ballot machine was broken and they were just collecting them. He opted to comeback later. Vote Romney!

  25. Perpetuating Fear Republicans

    Republicans have and always will be gripped in fear and perpetuate fear. That is your only platform that makes you feel comfort. Well, got to tell you! Obama will be sworn in January! Later Mittens
