    In Northeast Ohio the voting is hot and heavy 

    The polls will close in Ohio in two hours. It took Ohioblog 25 minutes to get through the longest line Blog has seen in almost 25 years at Green's Precinct 2-D. Most of the mid-morning voters were older, but some of Blog's student journalists at the Buchtelite, the University of Akron's independent student newspaper, waited more than an hour to vote. Don't tell Blog that these students don't care. They do. After they had voted, they returned to the Buchtelite office and argued so loudly about their politics that Blog had to close his office door and eventually abandon the place to get some peace and quiet. There were no challengers at Blog's polling place, where the much smaller Green 2-E precinct also votes. None was needed. As Blog mentioned, these were mostly older voters, many of them unchallengeable, longtime Green residents. When Ms. Blog voted around noon, she experienced much grousing among the poll workers who, frankly, aren't used to working so hard and steadily. They were complaining they hadn't even been able to get up and have coffee. Hey, what did you expect? Few are staying home, sitting on their hands. We came out in the rain. We checked our chad. Now, we wait. This is important - to us, to the nation.
