New, 45 comments

As you all know today is election day! if you haven't already, go out and vote. Let your voice be heard.

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Today was a pretty big day for me, because it was the first time that I was able to vote. It was a pretty smooth experience, because I voted later in the morning so there weren't many people out there. When I received my ballot it made me really feel like I was an adult. I was finally able to give my say in something so important, and I thought that was really cool.

Throughout the country voting experiences vary. On the east coast it appears they were able to go with electronic voting. I heard that in Florida it takes around twenty five minutes to fill out a ballot, I was really surprised by that.

Someone told me this quote that they got in a card, and I thought it was perfect.

"Vote. Someone died for your rights to do it."

If you did vote, Of course you voted, so how was your experience?

ed note -- watching this one closely. we're looking for experiential descriptions, not politics. if we can't keep it cool, I'll nuke this and we can pretend it didn't happen. -jbopp
