Survey: Election Day

So I just finished voting and I’m curious to see which DC Metroblogging reader had the longest wait to vote. I vote in the Wilson Blvd preccinct in Rosslyn where I waited for an hour and 15 minutes before I voted. Can anyone beat that?

    90 minutes at Abingdon School this morning for me. My friend Jocelyn voted at Gunston and stood in line for over 2 hours.

    About a half hour for me at the fire house on Second Street in Alexandria, but a friend waited an hour and forty-five minutes in DC.

    wow…only about 40 minutes start to finish for me in montgomery county.

    what took the longest was actually when the poll workers asked me my last name.


    “no, your last name.”


    “no, not your county, your last name.”

    “my last name is montgomery.”

    [long silence]

    “you mean like the county?”

    I think I may have had the shortest wait. I walked in at noon. There were tables for sections of the alphabet. My table (H-O) had no line and there were two people eagerly waiting to help me get started. Even though they told me the camera phone had to be turned off, I moblogged it anyway!

    I only took 5-10 minutes. I went around 4:30, and one of the volunteers said that I’d probably just beat the crowd.

    The Key Blvd. (Arlington) had a wait of 2.5 hours until at least 10:30 Tues. morning–I left after 30 minutes and came back at 3:30 and then only had to wait ten minutes!
