I voted this morning here in Indiana, which is tightly contested in the presidential race and is seeing, like most other places across the country, record turnout.
I arrived at 6:30 a.m. and was leaving the polling station at about 7:45 a.m. -- an hour and 15 minutes for those that don't want to do the math. When I arrived, I figure there were about 150-200 people ahead of me. My colleagues tell me I also made the local television news; a reporter happened to stand close to me during a live stand-up as I was waiting in line.
I detected a general mood of muted excitement but I have no idea if it was about the political process or just being in line with hundreds of other people in a chilly, dawn parking lot.
How long did you have to wait today to vote?
