Don't have a picture but the line was out the doors and off the sidewalk into the parking lot. I decided to leave and try back later after class.

Forgot in my town they split poling places with presidential elections, waited 5th inline for 40 minutes in the wrong spot ](*,) drove 2 blocks over to the right spot and spent an another 40min in line.

I went at 11:40am and was in and out in less than 15mins!
The biggest bottleneck was the polling worker who had a hard time seeing the book of names!

I went back at 11:15 and similarly, very small line at least for my last name group. Took me also about 15 minutes overall.

However, within that 15 minutes a decrepit old lady scratched my car after she completely missed the little white lines indicating where you park your vehicle. My car is pretty old, has a lot of scratches and at least no dent so I let her go but it's absurd these people are allowed to drive, and vote for that matter. I remember her from inside, she couldn't figure out the difference between the registration line and the voting line. I told her where she needed to go but she stood around confused until someone took her hand and walked her to the registration table.

Old people :axe:

I had no line either, though for some dumb reason the Fire Dept decided to do a training excersize RIGHT outside of the parking lot for my polling place. They tipped over an entire Semi-trailer into a ditch and had traffic down to one lane. It took longer to get back out of the parking lot than it took to vote!
