***Official Election Day '08 Pics Thread***

Post your pics of lines @ your local polling place.

In my part of Fairfax County, VA this was the scene. Our polls opened @ 0600, when I arrived @ 0515 there were maybe 30-40 people in front of me. By the time the polls opened the line behind me stretched almost 400m (1/4 mile). I was in and out by 0615. My gf on the other hand arrived around 0545 and was at the back of that line. By the time I came out she was maybe 20ft from the doors of the school and was finished voting @ 0630.
We have two ways of voting here: Scantron type ballot and touch screen machines.

Excuse the blurry pics I forgot my tripod. Trying to hold a still for a 1 sec to 1.5 sec shutter is not easy, even w/ the lense VR turned on.

The first 4 pics are around 0530. The fourth pic show the line as it turned the corner.
The last pics are when I came out from voting.
Our ballot.
