Election Day Madness

Our inbox has been stuffed with tales of voting woes, voting ease, and general excitement about the presidential election.

In case you want to vote but don't know where to do it, try this page recommended by a listener.


I voted this morning in Jersey City and was surprised that an exit interviewer for WABC-TV was set up INSIDE the polling place, about 10 yards from where the actual voting was taking place. They were set up complete w/ camera crew, backdrop & seats for the reporter & interviewee. You couldn’t get in or out of the election site w/o being stopped by the reporter. Is this legal?

I am not an immigrant but my in-laws are. (from Italy). And though they have been citizens for over 15 years I just learned something the other night when I was visiting them. My mother-in-law was under the impression that since she is registered Republican that she has to vote Republican! She was also under the impression that they would know who she voted for. Simply put, she was afraid to vote for someone other than Bush.
