Voting Poll Wait Time

Just interested in what people had for wait times to vote.

We went about 11 am to beat Lunch rush and had about 40 minutes total.
Was not bad at all for Atlanta Suburbia..

I was about 40 minutes. However, that was in the longest line at the place, for the last names L-R. All the other lines were only about 5-10 people long.

Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.

Doofus M. -

Under 30 minutes after 4:30 PM. I was told it was around the block this morning, so I think the big chunk was this morning, and probably later tonight.

Under a Minute!

I went to vote about 4:15 pm yesterday. The poll worker was just finishing up with the person in front of me. I pretty much walked right in. My wife went early (just as the polls opened) and was about 125th in line. At least it's a good reason to be late for work.

I had to register, but that was the majority of the time. The whole thing only took me 35 minutes. I probably only spent 10 minutes waiting in line after registering. I was very happy.

I stopped by on the way home and voted at the fire station. No line, took maybe 10 minutes. But I also live in a township with no real town and an already sparse population getting sparser all the time. Coworkers from Charlevoix were talking about how there was so much traffic backed up that the police were out directing it.

My wife and I went to the polls at 05:30, polls open at 06:00 we were out the door at 07:00. We ended up in the longest line. Last name starts with K.

My wife went at 6 am right as the polls opened but traffic was so snarled and no parking was available she skipped out...would have been at least 90 minute wait. I left work early and walked into the same precinct at 3pm and was the only voter in the place until I was ready to turn in the ballot. The only wait I had was 1 minute while the poll workers quit their gabbing and realized someone was waiting on them. Went home, told the wife, and she left and was back within 30 minutes.

Also, I live in Chesterfield County...one of the places the federal DOJ(?) investigated after the primary was handled badly.
