Even before the polls opened across the nation this morning, citizens began reporting long lines of enthusiastic voters. Some noted unusually high turnout in majority Republican areas.

Romney supporters shared pics of fellow citizens braving unusually long lines at the polls.

    I am headed to the polls now. Get out and vote Romney/Ryan everyone! Take someone with you!

    • Dee M.

      My best friend – a die hard liberal – is FINALLY voting for a Republican. I am so excited! This does not bode well for Team O.

  • FIRE THEM ALL- 2014

    I don’t remember seeing this in the past, are more voting or was I sleeping through election day?

    • Kandeep

      Nope you weren’t sleeping… this is unusual… which I personally think is sad.

  • ChicksLoveRight

    I am crossing my fingers, heart in my mouth, praying hard!!! Don’t waste this chance to save our country!! GO VOTE!!! RR2012!

  • detroit19

    Arrived at precinct @ 6:35 am, 35th in line, left around 7:10 am, 250+ in line (heavy Republican, Greenville, SC).

    My wife, son(first time voter),and i just voted for Romney /Ryan ticket here in deep blue minnesota!!!

  • disappearing moderate

    I live in a Republican district in VA. People were in line where I voted by 5:30. There were easily 250 waiting when they opened. We went for coffee after voting and when we passed our polling place on the way back, the line went back further than we could see. My daughter and her boyfriend are going out later. I’m curious to know if the lines are still long in the middle of the day when many are working. In 2008. I voted at the same polling place right at 7 AM, and there were only 5 or 6 people ahead of me.

    • kate_middleton

      What part of VA are you in?

      My parents are in VA as well and had to wait 30 minutes at 6am. Pretty unusual for them as well – been voting at the same place since 1980.

      • disappearing moderate

        Stafford Co. I guess you are familiar with the state, but for those who aren’t, it’s right outside NoVa.

        • kate_middleton

          Nice! My parents are in the Roanoke area. In-laws are not too far from you.
          I think Romney has Virginia in the bag.

          • http://twitter.com/DaveAnd8231 Dave Anderson

            In Spotsylvania County, VA a 35 minute wait at 6am. We are 55-60% GOP, even in 2008. If VA is lost, Romney and the USA RIP.

  • sb36695

    This small business owner would like to thank those who brave long lines to vote for Romney. I will not survive another Obama term. I am truly grateful.

    • Colleen Kelly

      My family is right there with you. After we close down for the day, the 4 out of 5 us that can vote in our family will be going. Can’t come fast enough!

    • Dee M.

      Don’t worry, buddy, we’ve got your back!! God bless you and God bless the USA!!

    • Nick Renn

      Amen, sb. I too am a business owner who runs a family run business thats been strong for 50 years. It won’t survive Obama for 4 more years.

      • sb36695

        It’s been 27 for me, and I have NEVER seen anything like the last 4. It’s a truly scary time.

    • Elaine

      Me, too. I may not have to shut down next year! Thank you all who vote for Romney!

    • HillaryobamaShit

      I’m a small business owner too and feel the same way! Need to get rid of Obama and ObamaCare !! Vote !!

  • NoMoreGrapeKoolAid

    I have a One-Way ticket on American Airlines First Class from DC to Chicago…..any body know someone who might need that soon???????????

  • Tim P

    Looks like Chick-Fil-A lines.

    • Jamie Wilson

      Hah! I posted that too before I got to your comment!

  • Botzilla

    long lines in Wisconsin for voters registering for the first time, are these new voters going for Obama or Romney? My feeling is that these are pocket book voters that are looking at the economy and wanting to remove the party in charge, I’m calling Wisconsin for Romney by 5 .

    • Kandeep

      Botzilla I’ll be in line soon…in WI. I hope you’re right. :)

    • Harbormaster

      I voted 15 minutes after the polls opened in a small rural town of 600 North of Madison. I was voter number 21, no line.
      I, too, say Romney wins Wisconsin by 5 as the Walker recall has motivated the Wisconsin conservatives.

  • Hiraghm

    My polling place here in OKC was packed as I’ve never seen it before. Waited an hour to vote, when usually I wait 15 min, tops. This is in a largely minority neighborhood, but the majority of faces were caucasian, FWIW. Also most seemed middle aged.

    • John Batts

      Same here . . . oh, wait . . . We have the same polling place! . . . It was very good to see so many Reps looking to vote.

  • Dio Heerai

    Visit your local bars and get the wino’s out to vote before they get plastered we just did here in Florida rounded up 11 votes . WALK AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER AND GO ROUND UP SOME VOTES

  • RDPortland

    Really crowded in Hamilton County, Indiana this morning! The press, Obama, the professional Left…they are going to hear from us at long last today! We will not be ignored or discounted! And we are going to win!

    Get those friends out! Let’s make this wave a tsunami!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZA4URXM4LMINT6Q5FDBZ7VY3FA republicandrinkingtea

      As a former Hamilton County, IN resident (I live in FL now), I am very pleased to hear that the strongest Republican County in Indiana is voting strong!

      • RDPortland

        Cheers! We’re doing our absolute best. A long line, but people were determined. No other way to describe it. They are ready to take our nation back!

        Update: My wife went at about 1pm, which is usually slower, and there was still a 20 minute wait to vote!

  • tykrock

    I went first thing in the morning. We have a small precinct in my PA town, but there seemed to be steady traffic. I was voter number 91 about 40 minutes past polls opening. We tend to skew Republican in this area.

    • dschwarpa

      PA is basically Liberal/Union Progressive in Philly and Pittsburgh with Alabama everywhere else. I hope PA goes Romney!

  • Sharon Ulery Ruggieri

    Had 80 in front of me in line at my polling place in Peoria, Arizona. Heavily republican area, I’ve been voting there for 8 years and never…EVER…had to wait in line before!

  • Colleen Kelly

    Going right after work and I cannot wait. Been seeing a lot more Romney/Ryan signs this time around so hoping for a strong turnout in our precinct in Montgomery County, PA. Kind of felt like a little kid at Christmas last night when I went to bed and saw our 2 signs in the front yard, just anticipating the change that this country so desperately needs. Hopefully a President Romney will be our gift and not a stocking full of coal.

    My mom is all excited and says it feels like when the Flyers are in the playoffs (election coverage has substituted for hockey during the lockout). Wants to make snacks and everything when we watch Fox’s election coverage. And just like the playoffs, I’ll be on the edge of my seat not eating until we have it locked up lol.

    • Guest

      I know what you mean. I’m too nervous to even eat now, much less later today. My husband works at a hospital. I asked him to bring home a straight jacket as I would probably need it by 9:00 p.m. I’m afraid this is going to be a nerve-shattering ordeal.

      • Colleen Kelly

        Get me one too! And I agree, I think it will be a nervous ordeal. I’m just praying Romney gets PA and OH early on (plus FL and NC would help) and make the night less stressful.

        • YeahWeWill

          Me too!!! I am in SO CA and am pinning my future on the common sense of others. Scary!

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        I told my husband to bring home alcohol. 😉

        Just kidding. Well not really — I’m having conservative friends over for a few martinis while we watch the returns, and I will pop the champagne if the sane people of VA, PA, NC, NH, OH and FL end this night of torture for us quickly.

    • http://twitter.com/_uptoolate_ _uptoolate_

      Politics has replaced hockey for me, too. Go Mitt! (and Preds if they get the NHL gets it together.)

    • GeorgieGirl9

      Hope we can put Romney Ryan over the top in PA – same feeling here in Chester Co. PS – Miss the Flyers

      • Melody Canterberry

        I hope you can, too, if only to stick a finger in the eye of the NBBP, the Dem observers, and anyone else involved in the shenanigans going on in Philly. I had to quit reading about it because my blood pressure was shooting up to dangerous levels. Utter ridiculousness.

    • FDavis847

      Go MontCo! A former home for me…C’mon PA, you KNOW you don’t want this loser for another four years! If Montco goes red, the other Philly suburbs will too, and it’ll be time to stick a fork in Obama.

  • dschwarpa

    Long lines in Republican District in Canton Akron. Lines out the door. Longest I’ve seen since moving here 4 years ago. A good sign. Go Romney/Ryan!

  • ClarkFL

    I’m stuck at work right now. I’m picking my wife up from her work and we’re going straight over to vote. Romney/Ryan all the way!!

    The story of 2012 will be Romney Democrats as Romney captures a surprisingly high number of Democrat voters. The polls didn’t see it in 1980 and they don’t see it now.

  • Jamie Wilson

    Looks like Chik-fil-A not so long ago. . .

    • Kate

      I have definitely heard people refer to this as “the Chic-Fil-A election.” Seems appropriate.

      Hope it keeps up!

  • Hat Whit

    Voted in one of the bluer towns of blue NJ. In 2008 there was a considerable line at the same time. Not so much today. It was brisk, but no line. Oddest thing I’ve noticed this time is the lack of yard signs. TONS in some parts for local candidates, but very few for presidential. In many travels in the state in the last three weeks I’ve only counted 3 Obama signs and about 8 RR signs.

    • FDavis847

      Same here in deep blue Long Beach, CA…easy peasy vote…seems the Dems are taking a powder…

  • Lexikin

    This is happening all around America. Record breaking #’s of people voting, and they’re not votes for Bummer!

  • Kate

    My parents voted at 6:30 am in Macomb County, MI (I voted absentee). Said there was a line of about 50-60 people when they left. Hopefully the suburbs and the west side of MI balance out Detroit and Flint!

    Keep it up, America! We can win this thing!

  • RDPortland

    They woke the giant. Today, we take back our country.

    • GeorgieGirl9

      Please be right

  • Mistie Thompson

    We live in Wildwood, MO (suburban St. Louis) – hubby was in line when polls opened at 6 a.m. and it was a 40 minute wait. I got in line at 9 a.m. and voted Romney/Ryan after a 20 minute wait – was #497. The line was longer when I came out than when I went in – people are fired up and willing to crawl on broken glass to vote here!

  • Russ

    My local precinct in suburban Philly had a line out the door at 9am, when we thought most of the morning voting people would have already voted and gone to work. However, the line moved quickly, and we were in and out within 10 minutes. Evidently, it’s a heavily Republican district. All the lawn signs outside the polling place were for Republicans. In addition, only one house within a two mile radius had an Obama 2012 sign, while loads of others had Romney/Ryan signs, and signs for other Republicans.

    Also, later in the day, the polling place’s church parking lot was full, there were cars parked all up and down the side street, and cars randomly parked on the grass, surrounding the church. This gives me hope that PA might turn red, despite the hanky panky in Philly.

    • Russ

      Forgot to add that my spouse was randomly asked for ID, which, the poor woman at the desk added (apologetically) was not required. I was next in line, and was not asked for ID. Both of us had our photo driver’s licenses, though.

  • Tworkman

    Tried to get a jump on the long line by getting up at 5:30 AM. The line was wraped around the Centerville EL school hall ways in Virginia Beach Va. I came back at 9Am and still had to stand in line for 2 hours but Romney got the vote

  • FaithMartin

    And this is before the rest of us get off work!!! I took the day off to stand in line and vote. even in my little podunk community we had lines. Our Great grands getting out leaning on each other to vote!!!

    Lines in Va Beach, Va at 7:00 were an over an hour long. Polls opened at 6. People in lawn chairs and blankets waiting at 5. Turnout looks to be huge. President Romney coming soon!

  • A Willful Boy

    Forget republican-heavy districts. My dem-heavy district has a voter who was elsewhere in ’08 voting Romney ’12!

  • http://www.facebook.com/john.hanover.35 John Hanover

    I voted and the useless candidate who is trying to unseat Coffman (R) had one of his volunteers out and asked if I wanted his brochure I said hell no. Also asked him what Province in Canada McClusky ( the challenger and D ) was from the volunteer had no idea that his boss was a Canadian. 6th District in Colorado Red and Proud.

  • centrist86

    Shared some of these pics on a forum. All they wanted to do was point out was that there were too many white people in line. I’m so sick of everything being about race.

  • Kele Johnson

    My boyfriend, a die hard Democrat, who has never voted for a Republican in his life, is voting a straight Republican ticket here in deep blue California today. I won’t have to dump him after all.

    • AlThompson

      Hon, no mysoginistic offence meant, but if your avatar is your picture, he’d be a FOOL not to vote GOP!

    • FDavis847

      I dare to imagine that CA will barely vote Obama…I just don’t see him winning by 15 points, as polls contend…And if it’s close here, it’s a landslide for Romney everywhere else.

    • nc

      Sounds like a keeper.

  • cscape

    Definitely Chick-Fil-A (August 1) Redux….. Catching the dumb-ass media and even dumber pollsters COMPLETELY by surprise – and it is because they completely deny HISTORY, even if that history is only 3 months old

  • cscape

    Obama wanted his voters to vote for “revenge”…… Romney made that “love of country”, and it is evident from these reports and pictures, that there’s a large measure of REPUDIATION at work

  • ryukidn

  • Devon Maxwell-Pierce

    My grandfather went to vote today at our precinct in little Dunedin, Fl. Yes, Pinellas county sometimes goes blue, but there was a 45 minute wait early this morning. In the rain. People are motivated and judging by the signs in the area, it isn’t by Obama. I personally cast my vote for Romney Saturday in the same county and I’m an independent who has never been polled. I feel energy that I didn’t have back in 2008. Please let it mean something. Go Romney/Ryan! Seize the moment!

  • Devon Maxwell-Pierce

    Just had a conversation with a friend, an Ohio Independent that voted for Obama in 2008. She wasn’t even going to vote, but her mom convinced her that people died for that right and she went and voted. For Romney. She was undecided until last night and she broke for him just like all the favorable models have undecideds and independents doing!

    Sheriffs were needed to direct traffic at a polling place in Washington County, WI yesterday because turnout was so great. This county went 70% Romney. Does anyone really believe that John McCain got more votes in 2008 than Romney got yesterday?? Romney supposedly got 57 mil votes to McCain’s 59 mil. I ain’t buying what they’re sellin. http://www.kypost.com/dpps/news/national/turnout-shaping-up-to-be-lower-than-2008_7991483
