Early Voting and the "Fed-up" Voter

I voted the other day (Oct. 19th) at early voting here in Knoxville on the first day the polls opened and there were long lines with many concerned looking voters. One guy in line yelled out “this is the fed-up line” which was met both with silence and slight amusement. I am going to assume that fed-up voters are for Trump but who knows? Maybe fed-up people vote for Johnson.

Yesterday, I passed by the same voting place and it was packed with Saturday voters who needed to vote on a weekend. Everyone is concerned about the election and is “fed-up” in their own way, depending on what that means to them.

If you have done early voting, what was the atmosphere like? Were the lines long or short? Did people talk about any of their concerns?
