Random semi-related stupid question: how long does it usually take to vote when you go down to the polls? Are there polls all over? Are the lines crazy? My sheltered Oregonian mind has always been curious.

How is it irresponsible, amateur, and sensationalist to report what someone said verbatim on video in front of the entire country?
because it's not what he believes. the romney campaign doesn't deal in facts.

His economic successes have been relatively strong considering what he was handed. Thanks for "reminding" me that I run a music blog ... for a second here, I almost forgot.

Can't help you there, my friend. Just barely missed the cut of in this year's election (motherfucker). Anyways, I'd imagine that voting early would have a significantly earlier shorter line than actually on the day of the election.

The piss-poor economic job Obama has done over the past 4 years, including adding 5+ trillion to our national debt means nothing compared to a sensationalized elimination of PBS. This is amateur and irresponsible reporting, which should serve to remind you why you run a music blog and not a platform on which to overlook the real, actual problems of this country.

Who's overlooking the real, actual problems of this country? The only reason we're talking about it is because Romney felt this was a big enough deal to mention during a national, televised debate. Romney's platform is one that entirely lacks specifics, yet he felt compelled to mention a plan to end the PBS subsidy, which isn't even a drop in the bucket of the country's financial problems.

Politics on here outside our General Thread are generally a miserable endeavor.

I meant fun in a conspiracy thread sense, of course.

Yes, there are polling places everywhere. Find the one closest to you here. How long it will take/how long the lines will be entirely depend upon where you live and what time of day you go to the polls as the actual voting process itself is very quick. Hope that helps.

Oh, we don't vote at the polls here, so I was just curious

Good to know it's quick though.

Ohhhh I look like an idiot haha. Didn't realize Oregon's a vote-by-mail state, cool. Did you guys switch to that before Washington or were they first?

Oh it's not a problem haha. I think we were first to make it mandatory? We've had this system since as long as I can remember (I've lived here since 1997 and I don't ever recall there being polls in that time), and I think Washington just enacted theirs a little while ago, although I think they've had the option to for a while and it's only now mandatory. It's sooo much more convenient imo, which is why I was curious about the polls lol

Yeah sounds like you guys were before Washington. I bet it's super convenient, but it'll be kind of awkward when the USPS eventually goes under haha.
