In my tiny town (few thousand) at around 8:30a.m. I voted. There was a small line (3 people in front of me or so) and I was number 347! That's about how many vote all day in a regular race with no major elections taking place!

Now you may wonder how I know what number I was? We have old fashioned crank ballot boxes, swear to you, with the rolling numbers on front like the odometer in an old car. We do really old school with paper ballots and a penciled in X. Honest! It's so cool.

Oops, we're not that big, only 3,335 as of 2000. That's even more impressive to me!

caitlin - that's so cool! I really miss our old machines - there was something so satisfying about pulling the lever & having the curtain close. More tactile. A better metaphor for what we are doing when we vote.
In my ward, just on voter machines (not absentee, provisional or early), turnout was over 84%. so cool.
