Election Day Open Thread

voting line

We're a 501(c)3 and can't endorse candidates for office. What we can do is remind people to vote. Judging by the lines this morning, New Yorkers are plenty motivated.

At PS 152 in Brooklyn, the mechanics of the polling place seemed to be working fine, but it still took nearly an hour to cast a ballot. New York needs to get with the program and implement early voting.

This thread is open for all election-related conversation.
