Photo Essay: Lines at Polling Places Across the U.S.
Julia Levitt, 4 Nov 08

Today, Americans will turn out in unprecedented numbers to elect their next President. Thanks to Flickr users across the country, we can see what the lines look like outside polling places from Manhattan to L.A.

I've re-posted some of them here, with excerpts from their original captions (for those that had them):
