AOA Exit Poll 2010 (and drawing!)

Thumbnail image for ballot scannerUpdate: The drawing's now closed, as is the exit poll. Thanks!

We thought it'd be interesting/fun to do a quick (and totally unscientific) exit poll for Election Day.

So, the first-ever AOA Exit Poll is after the jump. It should take all of 30 seconds to fill out. We'll post the aggregate results tomorrow.

Also, as part of the poll, we're giving away a copy of the Daily Show book Earth: A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race. We'll draw one winner at random from all the people who take the poll.

Important: You have to take the poll by 11:59 November 2 to qualify for the book drawing. You'll also have to enter an email address (that you check regularly) so we can contact you. We'll notify the winner by noon on November 3. And the winner must respond by 8 pm that day.

On to the poll!

Trying to fill out the over-sized ballot on the under-sized voting cubicle reminded me of the scene in Men in Black where the agent candidates take the aptitude test.

At the RPI Field House, the privacy sleeves were not in use for the ballots, so after you left those Oompa Loompa sized privacy booths, anyone who wanted could easily see your votes on the way to the machine...that's not the way official site says it's supposed to happen, and for good reasons.

I don't know why the scantron machines couldn't be in an inconspicuous place- like behind the voting cubbies. Walking across the room seemed counter-intuitive.

I've never felt so apathetic about an election in my entire voting life. And that depresses me.

I think that I am optomistic about the next administration because this 'accidental' one has been a fiasco.

The biggest issue for me was worrying that the 'intolerant' will win enough seats that civil rights will be set back decades....

Oh man... I guess the exit poll has no love for macs, firefox, or chrome on windows... doody...

I have to say, I did feel like a giant in the little cone of silence/privacy deal whilst filling out my ballot.

Also, I appreciate that it's the first time I was using the machine but really... did they *have* to stand over me the whole time? I know how to yell for help. :)

Anyway, a generally positive experience, as far as voting goes :)
