OFF TO VOTE…. As regular readers know, I tend not to leave my desk in the morning, but right now, I’m off to vote. Here’s hoping the lines aren’t too terribly long.

While I’m there, consider this a voting-related open thread. Any interesting experiences while waiting on line? Notice any key differences between voting this year as compared to previous elections? Did you take a moment while voting to appreciate the historic significance of this race?

The floor is yours.
