Today is the big day. Are you planning on voting. I have been meaning to make it to the polls for quite awhile but, with a sick baby and then my own miscarriage I just haven't felt well enough to make it to the polls. I'm not feeling the greatest today... but I am going to make a commitment here and now, to you my mylot friends that I will go and vote. How about you? Did you vote, why or why not. If not... who were you going to vote for, can they win without you?

I'm too young to vote, but I don't think my one vote would make a huge enough difference for me to really be upset over it. I would just love to see how the voting works, though. I would love to see how everything goes on. But, no, I am staying home. My older brother, who is 19 now, is going to vote for Obama for me, as a birthday present, I don't think he really likes either candidate, and the independent people are just so unknown that they're not going to win anyway.

Hmm good for your brother. I agree that the election process is very disheartening. I hope that some day we will have election reform. It is time that a 3rd party candidate have a flying chance to take the election.

Yup, I went this morning with my oldest brother and my stepdad. It's the first time I've ever voted. It wasn't so bad and took all of about 10 minutes. I am so proud of myself LOL I've seen alot of articles in the news about how one candidate is leading over the other and I think that is really a way to discourage voters from voting...making them think the race is already over so they won't bother with it.

I went to the polls aroun 7:30. It was the first time that I was old enough to vote, so I was really excited. I voted for Obama.

Voting is over. A new President is elected. Lets wish him all the very best. He has a lot of responsibilities on his head when he takes over. Its no easy task.

I agree completely. No matter who had won this election they would have had a very very hard job ahead of them. I really think Obama is up to the task and Im very excited to support him.

Yes I voted today. My 83 year old mother voted today and considers voting a privilege. She enjoys getting out to vote. I was so happy that she was able.
