#3 That's good news, but don't get cocky!

#4 there's a purported Tim Tebow Tweet out:

"I'm predicting an early Obama lead....
til the Republicans get off work"

#5 I do have a beef with that. Why can't elections be on a Sunday when people have time to vote?

I don't like pictures of endless voting lines in Florida. This doesn't look good. What kind of organization is that.

It takes me 5 minutes to vote in Germany.

#6 Agree, EC. Takes me about the same time here in Ozzieland where voting is held on Saturdays.

#7 when you show up prepared with your sample ballot filled out, it takes the same 5 minutes here. It's the fools and tools that don't take it seriously and have to actually "read" in the booth

#8 EC, you realize that we just don't vote on candidates. Most locales have just as many 'initiatives' and new/renewal tax levies to vote on as people running for office. Many of those initiatives haven't been aired or distributed to the public prior to arriving at the booths. Often their titles are misleading requiring a voter to take time to read literally a paragraph for each issue to discern what the intent of the proposed action is.

#9 Procopius, we have that too in regional elections. Still I have never seen a line. The reason? We have a lot more polling stations, the polling stations have more voting booths, and people don't need to figure out machines or the like.

Of course if you start reading the initiatives when in the voting booth only you deserve to be shot.

And really voting should be on weekends.

#10 Unfortunately I believe that we won't know who has won tomorrow. I see endless litigation coming up because results are likely to be close.
