So how long are the queues? For my any waiting time longer then 15 minutes or so is simply nuts and a clear indicator of too few and/or understaff polling stations. But then again the US voting system is totally outdated and messed up. The dirty games with voting regions, the winner takes all concept, the sillyness with registrating as  voter etc. etc.

Where I was it only took about 7 mins.  Not many people at the time, and with all the early voters it wasn't a huge surprise, but it was a pleasant one.

At the very least I was able to vote for a pretty decent senate candidate.

I live in a rural area so there was no line at our polling place. 

My cousin said when she was trying to vote for Trump that the electronic voting machine switched her vote to Hillary 3 times before it finally registered as Trump.

I have no reason to not believe her but who knows.

Wouldn't put it past Hillary to cheat in the election. Wouldn't put it past Trump either.

Not to mention the two party concept, which just needs to go away. They could take some lessons from England.

Wouldn't put it past Trump either.[/quote] I've already voiced my support from Hillary, but I wouldn't put it past either candidate to try and cheat. That said, this is one of the reasons we don't use electronic voting machines over here. They're far too unreliable. They're also open to tampering and difficult to observe. One moment you're hitting your candidates number, the next you find out you accidentally voted for Ronald McDonald.

[quote="Lindale"]Not to mention the two party concept, which just needs to go away. They could take some lessons from England.

England isn't that much more democratic. Nearly half of England's parliament is hereditary, and they're by and large a three-party system. Only the Labour Party, the Tories and the Liberal Democrats have any real party.

Take a hint from the Nordic democracies. In Denmark, we have nine parties. One is currently in a minority government(Venstre, a conservative liberal party) supported by three other parties(Danish People's Party, Liberal Alliance, and Conservative People's Party). In opposition you have the Social Democrats. Unaffiliated with the Social Democrats but also in opposition are the Red-Green Alliance, The Alternative, Social Liberal Party, and the Socialist People's Party. Each party has a not-insignificant amount of power.

Well, that's it. Looks like America just elected Donald Trump and Mike Pence. The United States of America is now going to be represented by a man who has sworn to imprison political opponents, implement restrictions on freedom of speech, and turn his back on international obligations and allies that have poured in large amounts of their GDP and manpower into American operations.

Its vice president will be a man who believes wholeheartedly in conversion therapy, which involves forcing bisexual, gay and lesbians to watch pornography that the authorities deem "appropriate". It involves forcing them to have sex with the opposite sex, in order to "cure" them. 

Trump was supported by neo-nazis, the KKK and various other militant domestic terrorist groups. He was practically endorsed by ISIS, Russia and Turkey.

Another problem is the media itself seems to be one way or the other. I looked up the results of this election, and each site is saying something different. * Yahoo: Republican. Donald is clearly winning, but only because of Florida and Ohio. * Fox News: Radical Republican. Donald Trump is winning by a landslide, and cannot be touched. * CNN: Democrat, Hillary Clinton is winning, but only by a few states. * MSN: Neutral? They say the race will be a coin toss, exactly like Brexit.

"Serio"Only the Labour Party, the Tories and the Liberal Democrats have any real party.

You forgot about the Racist Party, otherwise known as UKIP.

Ke? I mean I agree no-one should be taking prompts from us on sane political processes but...
