For those who voted early in person, do the lines get shorter after the first day?

Because of how eager people are to vote this year, the lines on the first day of early voting seem pretty long. I live in a big city so I would like to avoid a long wait if I can. So do the lines get shorter after the first few days?

2. I stood in distanced lines, while masked, to get into the UPS store and WalMart. I can handle

the same thing when we go to vote early.

3. I have never voted early on the first day.

When I had voted early in person only a few people ahead if any.

4. Depends on the location.

Oh allows one early voting location per county. So in large counties there are always a lot of people. But the lines get shorter sometime in the middle of early voting period, but then pick up again toward the end of early voting period.

5. It was shorter for me

In Northern VA, in my county it starts off at the county offices, then in mid-Oct satellite voting sites will open up.

When I went to vote a week after early voting opened up, I walked straight in, showed my ID, verified they had the right person (me), picked up a pen and ballot, filled it in, fed it into the scanner. Less than 10 minutes, much of which was filling in the boxes.

But Fairfax County had long lines at the county complex on opening day.

6. I plan to vote on day 3 of early voting.

To answer your question, yes. It has been my experience that day 1 of early voting has the longest lines.

7. Thanks. I am eager to get it over with but it seems like waiting a few days is best to avoid the

crowd.
