    I'm going tomorrow to vote early. A co-worker said there were long lines and it took her husband quite a while in our county. (over an hour) Hopefully it was just a fluke on that day. I want an in-and-out deal.

    I'm going to wait until next week and check my status online again. Hopefully, they'll have me in the system by then. The lady at the library said they might not have me in there until Nov. 4 :(

    Just remember, all of us, that if we don't vote, we forfeit all whining rights for four years.

    As for me, when I consider what my "foremothers" had to go through to get the right to vote for me, I would be ashamed not to vote just because the line was long, or I was tired. I think voting is far more important than many people think, and no matter how I feel that day, I'll drag myself to the polls and do it.

    Have we forgotten that women went to PRISON and were beaten and even tortured, for trying to vote and for assembling to try and get the right to vote? No, being tired, or seeing a long line, or bad weather, or whatever. . . I will be there to vote.

    I'm an election judge in a well populated area, and in my precinct, if you come after 5, you're going to be waiting at least an hour to vote!

    Like the others said, I would try to vote early. To the OP, when you registered, did you do it in person at the DMV or by mail? If you did it by mail, at least here in Texas, you would need to show some additional ID on election day. I don't know about your naturalization certificate. If that *is* an issue, they'll resolve it before you actually go to the polls. The poll workers and election judges wouldn't have the authority to verify that (again, at least not here in Texas.)

    For everyone, absentee voting is a GREAT solution to standing in the lines. Do it if you can!

    I went to the public library and the lady there had me fill out the paperwork. She said they take care of it. I had my naturalization certificate with me and wanted her to make a copy and mail it in with it, but she said I didn't need it. I just don't trust these things though.
