The year of Hopenchange pushed a record total of 131 million people to the polls; will the year of Hopenchange Disenchantment turn people out in near or equal numbers? Emphasis mine:
Turnout appears to be high in many parts of the country, with long waits at some polling places as voters deliver their Election Day verdict. …
Anecdotal reports from across the country suggested voters were enthusiastically making their voices heard. Long lines were reported from Michigan to Florida, from Nebraska to South Carolina.
In Virginia, election officials said statewide turnout would likely meet or exceed the 2008 Presidential Election. Pennsylvania officials said they expected about 70 percent of the state’s nearly 8.5 million voters would turn out by the time polls closed.
