I voted this morning at my local polling place in South Riding, Virginia. The lines were long, but not overwhelming. Turnout seems to be high, as expected.  I expect the lines will grow longer as the day progresses, especially near the end of the day. The Virginia polls close at 7:00 p.m., and anybody in line at that time will be permitted to cast their ballot.

All eligible voters should head to the polls today (if they did not take advantage of early voting). Research the candidates and issues, make your decision, and be counted. We are very blessed to live in a country where we have the right to shape our government.

Be sure to come back to Off on a Tangent this evening as the results come in.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
