Lets all do our part today!!!

Voted this morning in Whitefish Bay. Longest line I’ve ever been in and traffic around the Village Hall was heavy.

+1 for Walker/Kleefisch from 2010 as my wife voted this time around. Our neighbor was shocked figuring she wasn’t a Walker supporter...

Reince Preibus on Charlie Sykes this AM sounding pretty fired up and expects a victory outside of the fraud percentage. Reporting heavy absentee response from R areas out State.

Outside of Madistan WI (Sun Prairie)
480 count on the machine at 0820.

That’s a lot considering the count during the primary at 1645 was 560.

I hope walker smokes em!
I’m sick of the commercials, stupid yard signs, hatred towards conservatives, et al.

The Washington Post (I know) has an interacive Exit Poll tool that examines past voting patterns in Wisconsin. It is supposed to be updated with today's data beginning at 6:00, and it may give some early clues as to the outcome.

Turnout is heavy this morning. Wife just called after voting, said it's kinda stunning filling out a ballot with just 2 choices and commented on what a waste of tax money to stage this election for spoiled children.

Here in our polling place in Whitefish Bay.

#130 at 7:35AM with absentees already having the number at 317. Real heavy voting for this area. Lots of traffic around our polling place.

Alberta Darling over performed based on previous history here in her recall and I expect we’ll see Walker support the same way.

Cheesehead from south of the Cheddar Curtain here.

Saying non-stop prayers all day. I might drive around the border towns looking for a box of ballots that may have dropped off a truck somewhere.

You have good reason to be nervous, because this is an historic moment in American politics, the twilight of the Labor momvement which dawned during the New Deal. This will rightly be seen as the beginning of the end of the Obama disaster and the unraveling of the American Socialist experiment.

Who is watching the Justice Department? They are going to ensure voter fraud in favor of Obama by intimidating the poll watchers. This act by Holder scares me.

You have good reason to be nervous . . . This will rightly be seen as the beginning of the end of the Obama disaster and the unraveling of the American Socialist experiment.

Or this might be seen as the beginning of the end for American freedom, that next step beyond "electing" Obama, the step that confirms a national commitment to socialism. This election is critical, and we need every possible WI voter at the polls today, both to overwhelm the organized fraud efforts from the unions and the far left and so that those crooks can't vote in the names of people who didn't both voting. Unions and the far left pose a clear and present danger to America's survival, and nothing is more important for a WI voter today than standing up for America.

The Progressive/Liberal Wisconsin Dems should be nervous. Their bailing out on the state could become a double albatross around their necks. And the public, sick of them for decades to come.

By making this a nationwide issue, they have energized the voters. But instead of stimulating the union vote, they are stimulating the pro-Wisconsin vote of those wishing the state to succeed. And I don't think those pro-Wisconsin voters want the same as Illinois, California or the other rapidly dying Progressive/Liberal states.

I wonder what the average Wisconsin voter thinks of all these outside influences descending on their territory?

The widely respected Charlie Sykes is holding forth about the election on WTMJ right now. You can listen online here (click on Listen Live).

I note that they will have coverage all day, except during the Brewer's game tonight; gotta have priorities, you know. :)

Right there with ya. No need to worry, though. The DOJ is overseeing the voting process. Somehow, that doesn't make me feel better! :-/

Thanks for setting this up... As everyone else has said, this is the most important election of the year, outside of the POTUS... Fingers and toes crossed that turnout on our side is huge.

If it’s the WAPO bet on it being rigged. In fact I fully expect to read about reported incidents of voter intimidation by liberals of course and all of them making sure they mention the Tea Party in some way.

Also expect to see “LEAKS” regarding exit polling showing the Dems ahead. Of course the idea is to dispirit Republicans similar to what happened when the early exit polls in 2004 had Kerry with what seemed to be an unsurmountable lead.

Remember also in 2000 how the Networks called it for Gore before the polls in the panhandle were closed? That probably cost Bush as many as 10,000 votes since the area is heavily Republican.

I’m listening to WMAL out of Washington DC. A guy riding on a bus from Michigan on his way to vote in Wisconsin called in and talked to the host for a while. They’re being trucked in from out of state to vote under other people’s names.

No poll other than his internal had Barret above 47%.

PPP had it at 3 point spread yesterday but removed the independent candidate to get that.

Turnout, turnout, turnout!!

If you have all the info on that I would recommend passing that info on to the Van Waangard campaign in Racine. They’re being bussed in to flip that senate seat.

I thought there were four State Senators on the recall ballot also. Lose just one of those and the Rats gain control of the Senate.
