67. Just voted in the Kansas City area, north of the river
Tue Nov 8, 2016, 10:36 AM
Nov 2016

Polls opened at 6am. I got there about 6:45 and the line was all the way out the door and spilling into the totally full parking lot.

I has to go up two blocks and park on the side of the street. That the first time I ever had to do that. Heavy turnout so far and local radio reports long line in most places in the area.

Unfortunately MO is pretty red but dems are strong in KC and the other metro areas in the state so I hope the long lines are a good sign for Hillary and all the state dems on the ballot.

No armed deplorables scaring women and children either so that was a plus.

Still dark here in SoCal this morning. I can't see a thing! pinboy3niner Nov 2016 #1
