    Best of both! Bourbon barrel aged old ale!

    it is actually delicious.  But you taking about drinking with your wife made me think of it (better half) and Election Day (Founding Fathers—> Founders). Anyhow... I think I now know what I’ll drink

    Took my truck driver Dad to the County Courthouse so he could vote on Thursday. 
    I'm pretty damn proud of him.
    He said, "I don't even know who the candidates are, I've been out on the road too much.  I'm voting straight D down the ticket.  I thought the country I was born in was gone, I thought we had moved on, but we haven't."
    He said he had a dream last year that he drove through Tennessee like when he was a young boy and the stores hadn't changed at all and they still had "No Coloreds" signs in the window and it spooked him.

    Well glad he voted. Don’t like hearing voting straight ticket and especially when he admitted to not knowing about the candidates....but he voted. I can understand a Dem straight party vote this year more than any other.

    I think the straight ticket vote is a symptom of the big problem we have. Everyone just voting for their team. Just picking the letter next to each candidate.  It’s true that in some cases that is the choice for a person, but over time, year after year....if you are doing it then you are part of the problem. Just my opinion.

    I don’t recall a time I’ve ever voted a straight ticket. Local politics pretty much makes it impossible even if for some odd reason I’d want to.

    i will vote on my way in to work on Tuesday.

    i am so sick of this current political climate. i hope we can make some changes on 11/6.
    Let's hope! 

    I have felt so bummed about the political scene lately that I just couldn't get enthused at all about voting for several weeks.  But then early last week we sat down and really poured over the voter information (paying absolutely ZERO attention to the 6,548 pieces of garbage  recyclables in the mail and the constant barrage of phone calls) and worked hard to make the best educated decisions possible in our ballots. 

    C. and I both mailed in our ballots last last Friday.  Hoping for the best.

    It sounds like some of you have voted already by some other means than by mail.  I'm curious as to how that works? (It's those little trivial questions that get into my brain and keep me up late at night, lol).  Here in California, the only way we can vote early is by mail- other wise it's a matter of standing in long lines, something I'm not good at.

    I get the opposition to straight ticket voting, but our government is fundamentally unbalanced and needs corrected.
    On top of that, this political climate is absolutely insane and the rhetoric being allowed and supported out of the R side leaves no other option. 
    I get that people hate "my team Vs your team" politics, but that opposition attitude is one of the main reasons we have a total embarrassment as our leader and a spineless GOP unwilling to check him in any of the three branches.

    I vote early because I don't want to deal with long lines. Very big difference in voter volume between voting day and early voting. This past Saturday was busier than normal for early-voting Saturdays. I was there maybe 10 minutes. 

    I searched Google for early voting locations near my town, and went to the closest one.

    For what it's worth, this was the first time I ever cast a straight ticket ballot. Not because I have any great love for the Democrats, but because the GOP has proven they just should not be in power. That trickles down to the state and local levels because in 2018 if you are calling yourself a Republican and running as a Republican, you are almost certainly not anti-Trump enough for me. He is what your party has become. I will not support that. If local Republicans want my support (and I did struggle on what to do about Gov. Charlie Baker) then local Republicans need to do more to snuff out Trumpism in this country. I'll see where things stand in 2020, but this year the only choice was a #BlueWave up and down my ballot.

    here in my county, we go to a one place, a former Kohls Dept store that our BOE moved offices into. They have a lot of voting machines ready that seem to be grouped by precinct or precinct area(? I dont know this to be fact). You cast a ballot as you would on election day, no difference. Provisional ballots are done by hand and placed in an envelope and placed into a large secure box

    This system works very well and the physical set up has been tweaked over the years for greater efficiency. Plenty of friendly volunteers available to assist.

    We have several early voting locations here.  One of them is actually in the building that I work at, so super convenient.  I always early vote to avoid the lines.
