I just got back from voting the turn out was steady here but not large. That usaly comes later in the day here. I went with my parents to vote as they are in the 80s and 70s so there were 3 of us who voted.So if you havent yet go do so before the day is done .

Where's the "My state's primary is after Super Tuesday?" That's like a third of America or somethin'...

Alex,

That's why I said that the question is for Bilerico readers living in the Super Tuesday states. BTW, I live in D.C. and we don't get to vote until next week.

I just got done voting... a ton of democrats...I love it. I gave my girl my vote! But I will support whoever wins..

I did early voting last week.

Got into the polling place around 8:30 a.m. here in NorCal and it definitely was a bit busier than usual, with far more cars. I suspect the short ballot was responsible for the limited crowd inside, since it looked like people voted pretty quickly. Despite the new electronic voter machines, which while not difficult to use, were more complicated than the good old optical scan ballots we used in past years. The good news is that the new machine did have a paper copy that you needed to review and approve before finalizing your vote.

FWIW, it worth noting that about a third of California voters are expected to vote via absentee ballot this year, so that's one reason that in-person turnout may not have been heavy.

I can't vote.
I'm registered as an Independent, and in Arizona we're not allowed in the primaries.
So, I'll sit back and see who the parties pick and make my choice.
Easy.

Cool, didn't see that.

I know, we don't get to take part in this fun! And if this were any other year, we'd probably get only one person on the ballot by the time we voted.... Well, I don't know if DC has the same issues with that as IN, since one week behind Super Tuesday isn't as much as three months!

we dont get to vote today.. I will be voting in May though.. It actually looks like it might count this year..

Pshaw. I'm just jealous that there's only one freakin' candidate on the ballot whenever it's time for me to vote. Bah.

I'm such a spoilsport.

I sent in my absentee ballot a little over a week ago.
