Election Day is finally here. Here in California, we've got a full ballot, including 17 state propositions and many local ones. Lines are long at many polling places.

That's not a surprise for a high turnout Presidential election, even with so many voters mailing in their ballots. Just for comparison, LA County's turnout in 2012 was around 70%. Four years earlier, when Barack Obama was poised to make history, county turnout was 82%. We have no idea yet what it will be like this time. Our lines are open for you to talk about your voting experience.

Call us at 866-893-5722 or tweet @airtalk. How long did it take you to vote? Did you feel prepared for the long ballot? If you voted by mail for first time, did you miss the communal experience of in-person voting?
