My voting experience today was pretty uneventful. Probably because I was anticipating a confrontation.
I stood in line for about 1/2 hour and when I finally was up to the registration table I asked for a paper ballot and was cheerfully accommodated. The poll worker **did** ask my why, stating that he had to document that (I should have taken issue with that, but I didn't). I simply stated that I was uncomfortable with the electronic voting machines. The poll worker got me my ballot, I voted, submitted it in a folder labeled "secrecy envelope" (who came up with that name?) and left.
While I was voting on my paper ballot, people appeared to be having problems with the machines they were using (the "access card" wouldn't work right, etc.). It feels good to have voted and not used the Diebold machines
