Go vote!

So, over here in Germany our TV channels are full of "America Votes" shows. We're watching too and we're very excited and waiting for the result.

Everybody who hasn't yet (and is allowed to): GO VOTE!

I'm all for a change. Germany voted the first female chancellor (our term for the head of the country) in 2005 which was a SENSATION. I believe you can do it, too.

QUESTION: In our TV they show lines and lines of people waiting in front of voting offices. Why is that? Shouldn't there be more of those voting offices now if there are so many people waiting? I have never waited to give up my vote here. No, I believe if we had to wait to vote - nobody would go there. Too much effort. We have at least one voting office in every district of town with lots of polling boothes. And what is when it's closing time and there are still people waiting? Are they still allowed to vote? Or will the door be closed in their faces? And why do you vote on a normal week day? We always have the voting day on a Sunday so everybody has a chance to go vote. Please enlighten me. Thank you!
