Huge lines to early vote today in Broome County. Good sign for Republicans?

Recommended Posts

I've heard three of the four early voting sites in Broome County have huge lines to early vote today, on the first day of early voting.   I got coffee at the Dunkin Donuts on Reynolds Road just now, and the parking lot was packed at the mall.  WBNG showed a long line at the downtown Library, and I heard there was also a big line at CCE on Front Street. It will probably die down as the week goes on, but I've got to think this is a good sign for Republican, who more than Democrats have vowed to vote in person.

not sure if it is a good sign for Republicans or not but to me it sure points out that there are a lot of people who have already made up their minds.  Just another example of how polarized we are these days.  Also when i went to the Endicott Library around 4:30 today the poll workers said that earlier in the day there was a 2 hour wait.

There are something like 111 polling locations in Broome County.  Squashing those people who want to vote into 4 locations will cause excessive waiting times.

I saw the line at the mall.  Glad to see people motivated enough to wait in the rain like that.  Definitely no voter apathy in that group.  
 

Myself, I will be voting in person on November 3rd.

I read some people waited as long as three hours yesterday. I’m overweight and don’t think I can stand for more than 20 minutes. 

Diane, you might want to seriously consider a mobility scooter.

If Biden wins we go into economic depression. The stock market will tank. Your 401k will take a huge hit. Just think back to Feb. Trump brought us back from that.

An “orderly Trump win” would propel the benchmark S&P 500 index higher by 13% to approximately 3,900, wrote a team of JPMorgan strategists led by Dubravko Lakos-Bujas.

The Dow is like a thermometer. You may not like it inserted in your rectum, but it tells you the temperature of the economy and more importantly the forecast of the future.

Had a personal day today from work so I decided to go vote downtown, waited 1 hour 45 minutes in line to vote. Never waited that long before, I'd say longest ever was maybe 15 minutes.

Main Street?  The same Main Street that Shanghai Joe will shut down when someone can't stifle a sneeze?

The same Main Street in the cheese line, after China Joe puts 10 million oil and gas workers out of work.

China Joe is just the tip of the iceberg.

Way to refute my point.

Don't sweat it Binghamtonian. Most people who throw phrases such as "communist", "socialist" and "fascist" around like throwing candy at a parade have never cracked a book on political or social philosophy. Water off a duck's back.
