I worked the polls at Astoria Blvd and from 6AM to 9PM the we had a line of people pressing in to vote. I was impressed with the overwhelming desire to vote. So many Americans with long long Greek and Italian and all manner of names we endeavored to write down on their voting cards. NO TIME FOR A BREAK, exhausted, I came away exhilarated with the beautiful richly varied faces of young and old, making their mark on piece of paper with all the sincere effort they could must! A simple working man on oxygen could barely wait in line... Indoneasia Thailand, Korean Chinese Croatian SO inspiring. I stole away and ran down the block to vote,,,THE DESIRE TO PARTICIPATE IN A HISTORICAL MOMENT.

Regarding NJ voter turnout, I work in Manhattan, had to be on the road to get through the Lincoln tunnel before polls opened, I left my construction work site at 5 pm, it took 2 hours to get through Lincoln tunnel, fought gridlock though Hoboken to get back home to Jersey City and polls were already closing. I did not have access to email/printing capabilities while at work. I was lucky to get through the tunnel as it closed shortly after and all traffic was funneled to the GWB. Also, the NJ Turnpike was closed during rush hour. Therefore MANY people who left work at a normal time were unable to get to the polls before they closed because of these reasons. I think that Manhattan area commuter troubles could have had an effect on NJ voter turnout in the the metropolitan area.
