I voted early (we could do that here) for Klobuchar.

I’m not too upset about it. I think she deserved my vote, and it’s basically an A.B.S. vote anyway.

(Obligatory repetition - if Sanders wins the nom, I will indeed vote for him - not sure about my wife, though, who would otherwise vote Dem)

Don't feel bad, politicians have been getting people to either not vote or vote against their own best interests since before Reagan.

I was only the 26th person to vote in my (very red) county precinct. I voted on solitude. Me and four election workers.

There were more names on that ballot than voters.

Well, it was only 9 AM.

Wonder how fear of the virus will play into voter turnout, candidates with a dedicated following will probably be ok - those needing an extra large turnout maybe not so much.

...also Texas has closed over 750 polling places since 2012 - most of them in minority voting areas.

I just mailed my ballot today. First time I've voted in many years.

BRAVO California for moving the election up to Super Tuesday. For the first time in a long time, this vote really means something. In the past, the nomination was pretty well wrapped up by the time CAL got its chance to say anything.

I was still pretty well undecided days ago and thought that I'd probably skip the election AGAIN, but the then the dems consolidated. It's now a pretty clear choice between Sanders and Biden. I was leaning hard toward Klobuchar, but I voted for Biden today because I don't want Sanders to rep the Dems - I don't think he can win it all and I'm not thrilled with his campaign.

I haven't been in Bidens camp the whole campaign season, but I'm there now. I gotta say that after the SC aftermath, I'm feeling a lot better than before.

Voted this afternoon. My polling place is down at the harbor here. When I finished and walked outside, there were hundreds of harbor seals chasing herring in the harbor. I've never seen anything like it.

Well, according to Bernie's Twitter gang, those polls were closed to stop Bernie! Even though he wasn't running when they started doing it! I'm flabbergasted at the nonsense these folks fall for. They're like Trumpers.

That's plain dumb. Polling places were closed in GOP controlled areas. You're repeating a lot of campaign rhetoric I don't hear elsewhere - you don't like his supporters - I get it.
