    Default 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 . & 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

    We can mark our mail in ballots any day or hour of the week we want... now that said, can we get the US SNAIL to pick it up out of our mailboxes? I had outgoing mail still in my box at 6pm Sat night. My mail carrier now says they don't HAVE to p/u our mail if we have no incoming that day. Really, it's that much effort when you have 3 mailboxes 6" apart? 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.

    I think it's time to clean house in this WA too Marvin. Good way to spend a few minutes of this chilly rainy Mon afternoon now that you mention it. Anne

    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
