I went to my polling place this morning at 8 a.m.and the lines were very long. I decided to head back later, and not delay the line longer for those who needed to get to work and do not have the luxury I do of working from home. I just got an email from a priest who is standing in line in Virginia and the wait is one and one-half hours. So, if you have not voted yet, bring something to read. And, whatever you do, don't give up! Too many people fought too hard for the franchise for anyone who has it to abuse it by not exercising it.
