We Voted Today
The election for POTUS is not a contest in our left wing state, so please, those of you in swing states need to get your ballots in!
But the rest of the ballot is mostly Regulate, Tax & Spend - Key races for Gov McKenna - Inslee, 1st Congressional District Koster - Del Bene, our preferences in Red - the rest of the races have some pretty sorry candidates & when neither passes muster we write in to be sure the election folks can't add a vote for their preferred candidate.
Issues - the usual - the dope smokers & those with alternate lifestyles want that codified so they have privileges :( - IOO no one should be special, we are all Americans - I had a boss in Engineering who was AA, who stated, "I consider it an insult that they think I can not make it on my own". BTW Blackstone, he was one of the most competent bosses I ever had :cool:. & though I did not know his politics I would venture he would not vote for the current POTUS.
For our children's sake & our Grandchildren also, I sincerely hope that the current POTUS is retired & our governorship changes parties. This would be the most conservative governor in my history of following elections in this state.
I live in IL, where the POTUS election is always determined by the big sucking financial black hole known as the City of Chicago. There's no real point in voting against the blue party in IL, your vote doesn't matter.
But I do vote anyway, for the same reasons you do.
I will vote today...early reports here in Clark County show that the turnout is about 5% higher than 08 and that the Dem turnout is higher than the Rep, but then again that is after two days of early voting
We have a US Senate seat up for grabs, it was the seat held by the R's, also have a US House seat up for grabs too, it too was held by the R's
lots at stake here besides our two electoral votes
You were able to vote on a Sunday?

I guess someone forgot to tell the govt employees who pays their wages and oh... those bennies that the rest of us self employed saps can't afford.

Just got done voting, cast my vote for Romney/Ryan, voted for Dean H for US Senate, and Tarkanian for Rep, BUT I also voted for the Libertarian candidate in another two offices and refused to vote for any other incumbents
I feel good about voting not just in who I voted for but for the privilege of getting to vote in our great country
Cast my Republican vote today. Proud to be an American!
Texas early voting started today. 30 min. wait,. God bless the USA.
