Hm. maybe Super early in the AM or when school gets out... times when people would be with their kids.
Today the polls don't open until noon. I'm going at 11:00 to check it out. Seems inconvenient so I'm hoping fewer people will be there.
My guess is mid-morning or mid-afternoon -- times when people would be at work . My guess is that people will try to go before work or at lunch break. At my site (which I can glimpse from my apt) the only day of huge lines was Saturday. I voted Sunday mid-afternoon and waited about half an hour).
Totally depends on the site. I hear places in Harlem and some places in Brooklyn, Queens are empty. The lines on the UWS are 3+ hours.
I walked past a polling site in Harlem and the lines looked very long (down the avenue and around the block). Not sure how fast they moved.
i went yesterday at 1 and it was 30 minutes. people who went at 10 said was 15 min.
Has anyone gone to the one on 106th and Madison? trying to figure this out also- my friend said her friend waited for 3 hours yesterday at 11:30. was thinking of going tomorrow around 230/3ish...
I went to this site (106 & Madison) on Monday and there was no wait at all. I went in at 8:45am, voted, and was done by 9.
It wasn't today when I tried to vote. They said 3 hour wait. I left and will try again.
Gothamist had a good article about why some locations are so much busier than others, apparently they didn't do a good job allocating voter to locations so some have 100,000 voters assigned, others have like 10,000.
They also expanded voting hours because of wait times. Maybe go then, because not everyone will know of the expanded hours and it won't be as busy.
