Midterm Election Ground Reports – 3pm to 6pm ET – What’s Going On?

Heavy turnout reported coast-to-coast.  Excellent reports so far.  If there are long lines in your polling location it is critical to hang in there and vote!  Make YOUR voice count.

The U.S. media always have an agenda on election day and are generally unreliable for factual information. That’s where you come in. Your ground reports are much more reliable barometers of what’s happening in/around your neighborhood on election day.

So, what’s going on?

How is turnout in your precinct? How does today compare to prior elections at your polling places? What issues are important to your community? What is the general sentiment? Are there any voting issues or concerns?

Please share your experience in the comments section below.

    Note on Chris Collins (NY 27). The reason the Dems went after him so hard and dirty was because he was the first congressman to endorse Trump.
    They planned to showcase his defeat as the “end” of the Trump era.
    Google him, and you will see droves of corrupt media hit pieces.

    Enthusiasm Report W PA:

    My dear friends in Pittsburgh went to dinner at a local fave where they’re regulars – Armstrong’s – and their waitresses said quietly, please tell me you’re going to vote. She said to the man you look smart and his loud wife said loudly, “Yes, we’re voting straight Republican. We’re Trump supporters.” And the waitress said oh thank God. I don’t really like to admit I vote for Trump bc of some of the things he says but I’m worried about my grandchildren’s future. I’m worried about an open border and who my grandkids will be going to school with.

    Point being, even relative strangers are encouraging people to vote Rep in a union country Dem stronghold where Lamb won the special election recently and this woman’s number one concern is illegal immigration. Economy is important too but I think more plate seeing illegals as a threat to both the economy and our way of life.

    Again, Trump was right – immigration is the bigger issue for this election. Paul Ryan is an idiot plus probably trying to throw the election for Trump with his stupid advice. Why should Trump take campaign advice from an outgoing congressman with a failed presidential election under his belt?

    Wash U. med school student voting in precinct 17 in St. Louis, MO. Went to vote during my lunch break. No lines. Signs for McCaskill everywhere just outside the legal limits and people handing out sample ballots telling me to vote straight D.

    So I did the opposite.

    For the record, 2016 was my first election, and I was voter number 1539 at about 8:30ish. Today I was there at noon, and I was voter number 930.

      Massachusetts State Primary Election Results 2018: Upsets Galore

      BOSTON, MA — It was not a good night to be an incumbent in Massachusetts.

      Ayanna Pressley landed the biggest upset blow of Tuesday’s State Primary elections, upending 10-term U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano in the 7th congressional district. With no Republican challenger in November’s general election, Pressley is poised to become the first black woman elected to represent Massachusetts in Congress.

      The race for Capuano’s seat was seen by many as a referendum on the Democrats’ push for fresh representation. Pressley’s win is being compared to the headline-stealing victory Alexandria Ocassio-Cortez recently secured in New York’s 14th congressional district. Ocassio-Cortez tweeted out congratulations to her “sister,” as did U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, two rumored 2020 presidential hopefuls who were among the lucky ones coasting to uncontested victories Tuesday night.

    My wife and I voted just before noon. Steady stream of voters. The number who had voted was similar to 2016 and way beyond a typical off year. Probably almost 3 times what a typical off year would show at that time. We are in SC

    Voted last Friday. Indianapolis suburbs. Lots of Donnelly signs out early, Braun signs started appearing about two weeks ago. Mostly along roads and not in people’s yards. Guy I know waited an hour to vote before work this morning.

    I get the feeling that the Donnelly folks here are pretty vocal about showing who they support. The Braun supporters are quiet. Much like 2016. We shall see.

    This was the first time in my life I pushed the R button. The worst Republican is better than any democrat.

    I just voted at 3:30 PM Arizona time. I have been very fortunate in that my polling place for the 20 years I have lived here in Phoenix is literally just across the street.

    I voted a straight Republican ticket, even down to positions such as state mine inspector, corporation commissioners, superintendent of public instruction, and supervisors of college districts. For someone to be a Democrat today can only mean that they are in agreement with Socialism, or that they are too stupid and ill-informed to know that to be a Democrat is to be a Socialist. Either way, they are not fit to be making laws for the rest of us, so no office, even as lowly as dog catcher, can ever be conceded to them.

    Here in AZ photo ID is required, and they do scan the barcode on the back to make sure it is not a fake ID. They also have you sign your name and compare it to the signature on file.

    This idea I have been hearing that the Dems are going to turn Arizona blue is complete and utter nonsense. Martha McSally, the Republican ex Air Force fighter pilot is going to win big over the Democrat Communist Krysten Sinema, the community organizer.

    And tonight, starting at 6:00 PM, I will be attending the Arizona Republican Party election night party at the Double tree Resort with several close friends, where we will be watching the election returns with other like-minded patriots.

    Montgomery County, MD MD-6 reporting. The polling precinct I’ve voted at for the past decade appeared to have a steady, but not large crowd. I went at 5:30PM, which should have meant at least a small line. Nope. There were roughly 20 stations set up and most were filled, but no wait to sign in or get the ballot. This is a VERY blue county and a pretty blue precinct. I’d say R Hogan will keep his seat by a large margin, and it’s possible Robin Ficker might pull off a miracle for County Exec as the D is a neo-Commie and a ‘regular’ Dem, Floreen is running as an Indy. If they cannibalize each others votes and there is low D turn out… who knows what might happen!

  12. The voting precinct in my area was pretty empty I’m in the MD, DC area. It was steady but definitely not packed. I suspect most of the other people were voting Democrat. They certainly got the message out via their Hollywood Celebs. I don’t think it will make a difference. We will see.

    The election workers’ nonchalant attitudes towards allowing illegals to vote is proof this has been going on for a long time. They were not concerned AT ALL about being caught. They are very comfortable in what they are saying. Grrrrrr. Lock them up and throw away the key. Make examples of them so this doesn’t happen again.

    I am in a Minneapolis suburb (traditionally red, but has been drifting purple). My precinct has about 2,000 registered voters according to the state….the machine at the polling place where we inserted our paper ballot was showing that it had run 6,000 ballots through. Seems odd, but maybe the machine started at a higher number. Will watch to see what final precinct numbers are tomorrow when they are published.

    I voted at 2:30 PM in a small community center in Kent County, Maryland (population roughly 20, 000 in the entire county located on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, the red area of Maryland populated by farmers and watermen and small business owners). Parking has never been a problem. Today the parking lot was full and additional cars were parked along the street.

    We had heavy rain all morning and there was a large ankle-deep puddle in front of the walkway to the polling place. Lots of mud around it too. No other entrance. I mentioned the problem to a poll worker as I entered (and cautioned it would only get worse as the day went on!). He brought me to the person in charge; she was aware and had made a phone call (to county election officials?) but no one had responded. I proceeded to vote (red all the way) and place my paper ballot in the electronic scanner. Voter #520.
    After I got my “I voted ” sticker I decided I had a mission. I was going to make entering the polling place less unpleasant for the late afternoon/early evening voters. Not everyone would be wearing rubber rain boots like I was. I asked a nearby convenience store owner up the road if I could have one of the bales of hay they were using in a hay bale/pumpkin autumn display – I explained that it was for the polling place. No problem. A kind gentleman who overheard my request helped me load the 4 X 2 bale into my car. I returned to the community center and two poll workers helped spread the straw over the large puddle. It worked well.

    I cherish our American freedom and our right to vote. Praying that today’s election results bring us more freedom, safety, and prosperity.

    Voted at 15;10 CST. New polling station since we’ve been here (1999) and in comparison turnout at this specific time was light. They asked me if I wanted the ballot in English or Spanish. Somehow don’t remember this from all the times I’ve voted. Area is heavy republican where issues center around, and on, everything PDT is doing and has thus far done. Voted straight ticket except libertarian for TX Land Commissioner against Bush’s son because I want that entire clan to be finished. I always hold my vote until election Day not trusting it to electronic storage/count to be tampered with by marxist serpents. I know there is nothing beneath them.

    1. On the way heard Mike Savage on the radio heard him say he was aboard the USS Stennis two years ago and was told by two (2) Officers they walk at night with extra caution in fear of being stabbed or shot. Savage is nobody’s fool and I’ve never, ever, known him to lie let or exaggerate.
    2. Later saw a guy at Walgreens wearing a 3/26 Marines Khe Sanh reunion shirt. I introduced myself and we talked for a good while. He was at KSCB for the entire siege where my tour began early 1969 with 3/3. He served (2) tours. During his first he survived Operation Buffalo with Lima 3/9 in support of the nearly decimated Alpha and Bravo 1/9 Marines, aka the ‘Walking Dead” now USMC Legends, just outside Con Thien during 67 July. I couldn’t believe how good he looked for our age. All in, a good day and hopefully this was a good Omen and after a 20 day Novena we prayed. We’ll spare ourselves the industrial media “analysis” tonight as at this point my family and I have done all we can over many years. It’s in God’s hands. Yet, a long way to go….

  27. Suburbs of southwest Pa. steady flow all day. I was #333 1 hour after polls opened this morning at 7 am. My husband voted this evening, #1111. This is a lot of voting for a midterm election. Parking lots of other voting stations were full. Our area is 50/50 red and blue though so it’s hard to say who’s voting. I hope and pray it’s all red! MAGA!

    I happen to know that during the election in Burke county, NC people who had come into vote at one polling station before going to work had to go work without voting on count of ballot machine problems. Burke county is a democrat county. I see now that this is what was meant by “vote early/vote often. Tip to democrat voters to vote early on count of the machines are likely to go down? How 3rd worldish is that? Answer: As third worldish as the cartridge box substituted for the ballot box. Unacceptable.
