51% to 47% November 3, 2012

Posted by Fritz in Yachts and other things that float.

I’m off tomorrow morning escorting 62 8th graders to Philadelphia. I’ll be watching the results in a hotel room in Lancaster, PA on Tuesday. I realized a month ago that I would be out of town during the election. I voted early last Sunday. I waited in line over 2 hours…mostly because of technical issues. Both special printers went down.

In early voting, in order to cast your ballot for the correct candidates in your local area, you have to make sure you have the specific ballot for your precinct. This entails not only proving you are registered but proving which precinct you’re from so your custom ballot can be printed. After not moving at all for over an hour a poll watcher finally came out and announced they got one printer working. The line started a slow crawl forward; there were about 50 people in front of me and when I finally got into the room an hour later they were still operating on just one printer.

I showed my ID, and waited in a second line for my ballot to print. After about 5 minutes they called my name and I collected my ballot and proceeded to mark it up. It took me less than 3 minutes to complete including double checking my choices and inserting the ballot into the scantron machine.

I’m predicting Romney wins with 51% of the vote. Obama will get 47%…the same percentage that are on the federal dole.
