I did and had a good time. The voter ID law didn't go badly but it could have been a lot worse.
Heard 5 counties or so had computer problems today..

I voted last Friday. The only problem I had was that the person misheard my birth date. I finally told her "Look at my ID". She saw the photo, typed in the info, and then said "Oh, I didn't hear you right".
I got my ballot, voted, and then went home. Simple process.

I was in and out of the polling place in under 10mins. I think I hit it just right because it was around 4pm so not everyone was off work. My polling place is not near UNCC, but in Huntersville so didn't have to worry about the college crowd much.
Really smooth process though, no problems for me. Voter ID law is much simpler at least where I was. Made things move quicker it seemed.

I voted early, which was convenient for me, but I read an essay this morning that advised against it. For instance, if you had voted early for Ben Carson in Ohio or Illinois (apparently early voting in those states began before he dropped out) your vote was not counted, and, of course, any vote you might have cast for another candidate was impossible. I'm not sure that I was convinced, but I will say that you probably shouldn't vote any earlier than a week out in primary elections.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.â€

I voted, in and out in 10 minutes. Only fun sight was a Cruz supporter dressed like a Clown.
At my polling place, I didn't see anyone pimping for any of the Presidential candidates. The same was not true for the local elections. I think I shook hands with 4 or 5 candidates. I even voted for two of them.....
