It was a two hour wait this morning in Hampton (southern VA) for me and I got there at 6:30 AM running a little late. In 2008 I only had about a 30 minute wait arriving at the same time. Virginia is going to be really close I think, possibly within .5% which would trigger a recount.

What surprised me more was that 3 black people who turned in their ballots face up before me had all voted for Romney (top spot on the ticket). I am white and have a few conservative friends who are black but the majority of my black friends are still for Obama.

I can't stand either party and usually vote for the libertarian but with VA being so close I could take the chance this time.

I've seen some indications that Obama's support in the black community may not be as high as he thinks.

Voters at polling places accross Northern Virginia are experiencing long lines due to high voter turnout in the region. Speaking with election volunteers outside of a polling place in Alexandria, I was told lines have been been steady all day. Volunteers working for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney outside the location, said they believe the vote will be split between the two candidates in Virginia. Voters, including minorities, had no problems complying with Virginia's Voter I.D. law.
