Jon Hammond #1 Voter in Times Square on Machine #1 for Obama Biden, arrived 4.30AM voted 6.05

Jon Hammond #1 Voter in Times Square on Machine #1 for Obama / Biden, arrived 4.30AM voted 6.05:
Later arrivals waiting in hallway to vote:

Jon Hammond flew in to JFK yesterday on same flight as Charlie Haden's Band and met others who were coming home to New York to get their votes in for Barack Obama and Joe Biden, even one couple who lives part time in Paris and Sag Harbor NY.
Jon came at 4.30, nobody was there...2 more guys came just before 5AM, #2 and #3, shortly joined by #4, #5, #6 and #7, then a flood of people. Reuters News Service camera crew complete with Swedish cameraman was on the scene. Jon checked in at 6AM, went in to machine #1 and voted...came out to a big round of applause and by that time there were hundreds of people lined up to vote, apparently all for Obama / Biden. As Bernard Purdie said in an email from Japan after voting by absentee ballot "Go Man Go"!
A big day in history, the whole world is watching and the numbers are coming in now and looking good!
