I just got back from voting.  As I mentioned before, this was my first time voting and I didn't know what to expect.  However, it was very easy, I did not wait in line at all.  In an out in 10 minutes.

I don't know what the fuss is about with the voting process.  It couldn't have been any easier.  My county uses optical scanners for voting where you connect the two ends of a line, very straight forward.

There were few Bush supporters outside, didn't see any for Kerry.  My state -NC- is going solid for Bush.  As I also mentioned before, I did vote for Nader (I had to write it in, he is not on the ballot here)  , on principle.  Nader -I think- was the only honest vote in this race.  I feel good about my first vote, I didn't have to compromise and vote for Kerry just because I am against Bush.  It was easy because NC is pretty much Bush-country.  I would have thought harder about it had I lived in any of the battle states such as OH, FL, MI, ..
