Polling Stations in Pictures: Election Day 2012 So Far (PHOTOS)

votingHappy election day! I cast my ballot this morning before coming into work. Usually I'll just breeze in and breeze out, but this time I stood in three different lines -- and it took a little over an hour. That's first thing in the morning, too! I'm hearing that conditions are a little more crowded and confusing than usual all over New York City.

The Stir staff who've voted so far have been sending in photos of their polling stations, and it looks like smooth sailing -- outside of New York City, anyway. Here's what election day looked like for us!

Have you voted yet? How did things go at your polling station?

5Brooklyn: Long lines

Long lines outside the school where I cast my vote. This is the first of three different lines you wait in. Once I'm inside the school gym, I wait in another line to pick up my paper ballot.
