Posted on 11/08/2011 3:26:40 PM PST by RKBA Democrat
It's election day in NJ, MS, LA, the Northern Marianas Islands and....
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Senate is currently controlled by the democrats by two seats. It'll be an interesting night.
Damnit I just moved to one of these states and I can’t vote until I get a new drivers license (my other state’s Dl is good until 2016 what a waste of money.HEY WAIT I don’t need a drivers license to vote the illegals don’t!
PolitiFact N.J.: Chris Christie claims Republicans will buck midterm trend
Published: Sunday, November 06, 2011, 3:45 PM
Even if they don't win a new seat, Republicans can still declare victory on Tuesday.
Gov. Chris Christie explained how in a recent radio interview. He said that during the last 48 years every governor in the midterm of his or her first term has lost seats in the Legislature, except Jim McGreevey in 2003.
PolitiFact New Jersey researched state election history and found the governor is right. Besides McGreevey, the last governor to pick up seats in a midterm election was Robert Meyner in the 1950s.
So if the Republicans don't get their clocks cleaned in New Jersey, they've done well.
Va. Election results
PING for later reading...
Say what? All you need to do is register. Fill out the form and send-r-in.
Loyola is a shoe in win in the Tidewater district many are ticked off Obama stole the military town.
I just voted.
The only thing worth noting is that quite a few of the Republicans in my Upstate New York district ran unopposed. At least half of them. The most race for the most powerful position, County Executive, had no opponent for the Republican incumbent.
Democrats didn’t even field candidates for many.
I don’t know if anything can be taken from that, but I don’t recall it happening in the past.
We voted on some local issues out here in my neck of the woods.
The Obamabots are out there.
The guy in front of me-rather loudly-said, “My name is so and so and I live at such and such and I’m a registered democrat! I can’t wait to vote for Barack Obama again in 2012!”
The polling personnel reminded him that we aren’t supposed to discuss parties and candidates at that particular location.
Of course, I had to chime in. “They call that electioneering, don’t they?”
ping to check later.
HEAVY Turnout reported in Suburban Indianapolis for the Mayor’s race.
Local Media is already dropping hints about, AND LAMENTING ABOUT, the enthusiasm gap.
Millage vote for me today.
Iditots picked a hell of a time to ask taxpayers for $22 million to build a new school or refurbish the old one.
I voted no BTW
I have moved a lot in my lifetime and I am old scholl and don’t think you can vote until new plates and drivers license are obtained.I have only lived in the state for a few weeks.My old drivers license is still good until 2016 and getting a new one is the fastest way to register 22 days before an election.(Some states (NC) because of Obama corruption has no more rules or DL requirement to vote)
sorry to be a lard azz
I live up here in Lafayette, and I was under the impression that the dems were going to win the mayor’s race in Indy. Am wrong?
Ohio will close at 7:30 EST
“Loyola is a shoe in win in the Tidewater district many are ticked off Obama stole the military town.”
That’s my district. I don’t think it’ll be that easy. It’s competitive and the democrats have been fighting this one hard. I hope for a win, but think it’ll be close.
Issue 2: YES
Issue 3: YES
Polls close at 7:30.
GET OUT AND VOTE !!
If you’re in Virginia, no need to get the license first. Download the form, fill it out, mail it in. Use your passport or voter ID card when you go to the polls.
8 minutes till the polls close in Virginia!
any exit polls? how will the health care thing go?
Don’t forget ole Ohio ~!
I posted a thread for Ohio a couple hours ago so if anyone wants the link, FReep mail me .
The big race in Michigan is Paul Scott. He's up for recall because the teacher unions hate his guts. If he wins, it will send a big message that their days of control are coming to an end.
Can you post your ballot in plain language?
Were the issues worded correctly to not confuse?
please post it here so others can see it ... I am from Ohio & of course worried about 2 & 3
The VOTE NO on Issue 2 is so bogus.It makes it sound like all firefighters will cease to exist and all puppies will die and Ohio will have no teachers.
Thanks some states are anal.I am so fresh in moving I need to get the printer hooked up.
Very off year for NC, only mayor and city commissioners on the ballot where I live. I voted a little after 12:30 and the turnout was a bit better than expected due to the mayoral race being a real contest this time. I was thrilled to cast my vote for my very own husband, FReeper nnn0jeh, who is running for city commissioner.
Polls close in less than 1/2 hour. Hoping my dear one wins!
Here is simplesimon’s Ohio thread
the unions have put big money into this to lie & confuse the unsuspecting
thanks.. where did you move TO & FROM
What part of NC? Good luck hope he wins!
Let me know if Mayor Safo sp? makes it.
Who is in charge of the Ohio ping list ?
I somehow missed this post and posted the link again. ugh.
And notice in the adds that they are all “heroes”. “A YES VOTE ON ISSUE 2 IS A VOTE AGAINST THE HEROES”.
Got that ? Every single teacher, every single cop, etc.. is a hero.
Not a bad one in the lot.
No need to fire or promote based on merit. They are heroes for crying out loud.
MAKES ME SICK!!!
I voted for myself tonight for city council. That gave me 2% of the vote.
Prayers you get elected ~
Democrats now 2012 will be a tough year. They are probably are saving money and resources where they can, and not bothering to spend money to field a candidate in a district they're unlikely to win.
Las Vegas Dave
I am anxious but 6 minutes and no results I PRAY they are not fighting off ACORn,finding votes in trunks or fighting the NBP’s.

LOL sorry when I posted I swear the Cain cartoon pic was not there.Anyway any Ohio results?
Virginia is looking good.
Dang it WAS looking good when I posted it.Loyola is in mi,itary tidewater.
I said I feel like I'm always here and he mentioned how many times I will be there next year. I said “I may as well camp out here” and he said “occupy the election”. We giggled. He told me my district #....at the same time, a man was walking through and he said “follow that man”.
That man heard and stopped for me. We started talking. Long story short, he is a Bible based Christian. We spent some time talking after we put that stupid new card system in about how society was going downhill fast.
Just this morning, I posted a vanity about a commercial which appalled me.
I asked for some good wholesome, positive postings to get me out of my disdain. FReepers, of course came through.
Funny how I met a fellow Christian going in to vote after I posted my “vanity for sanity”.
Not so interesting.......Dems will win. Why did they not challenge so many dems seats
I hope you are right about Loyola as here on the Eastern Shore the left was out in force
I’m in that district as well and I’m with RKBA. I would love to think Loyola would be a shoe-in, but I think it’s just too close to call.
