Fork in the road... (is it a dinner or a salad fork?)

As for myself, I was out and voted when the polls opened at 7am. Not too bad. It would have taken probably about an hour to get through the line at that time (because my wife were there at 7am and not before so there was a nice line). We got lucky though, the voter sign-in was broken up into 3 or 4 lines, based on last name. Luckily, no one was in the T - Z line. Only took about half and hour to get through the line and vote.
Minnesota, for the most part, uses the optical scan readers. Either complete the arrow for who you want to vote for or do like my precinct does and have flashback to taking the SAT and ACT with the fill in the bubble.
Now if we can just stop listening to the dang campaign commercials on TV. I wonder how many will still be playing at 9pm tonight after the polls close in MN at 8pm. Very good use of campaign dollars.
If you get a chance, take a look at http://www.electoral-vote.com/ for a pretty nice break-down and history of how things have been looking throughout the campaign.
The big wager now is not who will win... its when we'll know. I haven't heard of any major irregularities yet, but I'm sure with 10,000 lawyers on EACH side (accoring to the local news this morning), we'll find some problem somewhere.
