My ballot went to straight Democrat and I couldn't change it.

You dont have to live on campus to vote if you are attending college in a state other than your home state. You are living in that state whether you live in a dorm, a fraternity house or share a house with seven other students. Some state tried to pull that crap a few years ago. If you go to school in a state and you live in a state and you are eligible to vote thats all that is necessary. You dont have to live in a dorm on campus.

ours are scanned when you put them into the machine. It keeps the original and counts your vote.
Then you get a sticker lol.

Mine had three names for senate
and one name for congress.
My congressman Bobby Scott runs unopposed every time.
and two amendment proposals for the Virginia constitution regarding tax exemptions.
There was not a vote republican or vote democrat line.
That does seem a bit odd that his was just one or the other.
Suppose you want a republican senator but a democrat or independent for congress?
Should we call a foul?

We had the problem here a while back with the electronic machines. I mentioned it at where you signed up on my way out, I guess others also had mentioned the same thing. I guess the machines were defective, but always favored Democrats, and the company that produced them was a Democratic based company. The township sent the machines back, they wanted no part of this insidious deceit. They got regular paper ballots and a special reader. The problem is does how you vote actually get registered properly when you insert your ticket? I guess they do checks before the election, but remember, the checks are actually designed by the ones that install the software so if that place is corrupt, it can still be designed to cheat.

i voted early, yesterday in CO and my ballot was all paper and black or blue pen.
I told the old lady by the drop off box that we should have receipts for our votes to keep a record and she looked at me dumbly.

Agreed. I double checked mine just be sure. Especially on the really important ones...I get they're all important, but some more than others. For me the Ballot questions were especially important to me, really, made sure they were correct. I took the time to re check every single one of my selections for every vote on my ballot though. Every single thing. I advise everyone here on ATS to do the same, double check everything before you submit.

This is not the Mud Pit, people. Refrain from, shall we say, personalizing your commentary.

Given the atmosphere around here on election day, it might be a good idea to practice a bit of restraint in posting.

Mine printed and scanned perfectly, had no problem and the lines were fairly short here. Also want to thank the poll workers who volunteer their time to our country and ensuring that Americans have a chance to vote

And out of respect for myself and this process, I did not vote a straight ticket. Hey, Red State Dems are nothing like the far left... and although they were all local/state level (so the US Senate/House majority won't be affected), I wouldn't have let that stop me from voting for a Democrat if I thought they were the best candidate for the job.

The votes are well under way, but good luck. To everyone

Sounds like solid advice


The poll workers talked about seeing significant turnout even compared to 2016. I am grateful to see more Americans taking part in this process, no matter who they support or ultimately vote for

I've heard there are problems like this happening up in northeast PA as well, from family I've got up there. I didn't even try hitting the straight ticket button, I just made individual selections.

I don't like the electronic voting anyway. Once that screen clears and says "You've voted" how do I know what happens to the data? It could make a mistake and no one would ever know.

Different states have different rules about this. Bottom line, election day is not when people should be trying to figure this out.
