    Also voting for Obama/Biden - and I'm in another of those "usually Republican but close enough this time around for your vote to matter" states. I can hope so, anyway .

    In North Carolina, they let you vote early,
    I knew who I was going to vote for months ago.
    I donated $25 to his campaign before he was even the official candidate!

    Woohoo! I'm going to vote this week. I just have to find a place that is open later than 4.

    I'm (almost) one of those geriatric voters and I've already proudly cast my vote for Obama/Biden!

    What kind of a democracy is that...? Does this really happen in the US? No wonder so many people don't vote then.

    I've never had more than ten minutes' walk from my home to the polls and I've never had to wait in line for more than a few minutes. Yay, uh, "Northern Europe".

    In the United States, we have a comparatively small number of representatives at the federal level (100 senators and 435 representatives), so each congressional district represents something on the order of 647,000 people. They have multiple voting stations in each district, but not enough for such gigantic throngs of people. Also, most Americans do not vote in "off-year" elections, so the big presidential quadrennial elections are huge undertakings compared with biennial elections or other local elections. We also do not get the day off from work on Election Day, and general elections are in November, when bad weather really depresses turnout. Of course, the United States is technically not a democracy, either, so voting shouldn't be as important as everyone makes it out to be, so I think that factors in, too. Many Americans simply do not feel that their beliefs are reflected by the two major party candidates.
