I expected to see more minorities at my voting location

Didn't see one, only older white residents. My brother was at another polling location, reported the same. I expected to see quite a bit more. How about you guys? Interested to see how successful the Democrats were in getting out the minority vote.

Core groups in every precinct are usually signed up for early voting. Plus it is much easier on the dead voters and keeps them from stinking up the place.

Here in Texas, around 9 million people voted early. That could be it. I vote early over here in the grove, near my job. But I've never been there on a polling day.

Same here but it's like that no matter what. Driving down the street, at McDonalds, the lake, etc...

Then again my city is 85% white, 4% black and 7% hispanic.

Do you have any idea how what the percentage of minority residents are in your precinct? That could be the deal..

Also, except for black Americans, I don't expect a gigantic amount of minority support for Obama. Mexican American's are probably going to be fairly split like they were when Bush was running. I'm not so sure about other Hispanic groups.

I early voted at the Lewisville Municipal Annex. And the day I was there the grounds were littered with McCain and John Cornyn signs, but not a single Obama sign. I did, however, see about a dozen or so blacks and a handful of Hispanics. Lewisville historically always votes about 70% red / 30% blue.

When I took my wife up there to vote a few days I noticed there was one Obama sign sitting amongst a sea of McCain signs. It was a thing of beauty.

When I went and voted, both lines for paper or electronic were all blacks.

Very few Obama signs down here in San Antonio but I would imagine a large portion of the Mexicans in poorer areas will be voting for Obama as well as 99% of the blacks that stay up on the east side .

They should have released welfare checks today to wrap this up.

You're attempting to draw a conclusion from nothing. I merely stated I was surprised there wasn't more minorities at my voting location.
