Voting started at 7 a.m. here in Iowa and goes till 9 p.m. CST. I'd say Joni Ernst has a 50/50 shot of getting over the 35% threshold and avoiding it being decided at state convention June 14th. She was last polled at 36%, but with 16% undecided and 75% saying they could be convinced to switch to another candidate the race is fluid and shifty.

It might be a very long night here.

You poor thing, I don't know how you manage to live there. For our local elections, all decisions are usually made in the primary. Usually no democrat even bothers to run, very red area. I like it!!!

I’ll be looking for how many registered voters and how many actually voted.

I want to see how engaged the voting population really is, if turn out is low, then there is little hope for restoring and preserving the Constitution anytime soon.

I think these states would be a good sample, of what to expect in November, if voters are not engaged at this point, well...I don’t know what to think anymore, except I’ll not see any changes, other than the continued doubling down of communism, in my lifetime.

The Green Papers is one of the best composite sites I’ve seen on the web. It’s
been around for many years and I don’t find it to be partisan in presenting the info.

Alabama races may be interesting today: the teacher’s union (AEA) is trying to hijack the election by funding a bunch of “Republican” candidates and hammering on one wedge issue: the repeal of Common Core.

Apparently no GOP filed in either race. They have been
voting absentee ballots since Apr. 24, 2014.

From the SOS web site election schedule

Thursday, April 24

First day to vote in-person by absentee ballot at county auditor’s office

Good luck to all states, especially Mississippi.

“The GOP cannot even be bothered to field candidates on the ballot in Iowa?”

BOTH parties in Kentucky left over half of the state house and state senates seats empty.

My EX employer is running for Alabama State Senate District 30, and I hope that prissy little, petulant, egotistical, vindictive, pathological two faced lying, backstabbing, thieving, hypocritical, coward loses. (These are the nice things I can say about him BTW).

Our primary is a mess. Taitz is running as an Independent.. Mayor of Long Beach - Long Beach Press Telegram says, "Is Long Beach going to elect its first Black Mayor or the first Gay Latino Mayor... " (Damon Dunn vs Robert Garcia) LOL... I voted for Dunn. He seems to have common sense on economic issues... He was GOP and switched to Independent. When he was GOP he ran for Secretary of State in 2010 and lost in November.

Damon Dunn

City council #5 is even a weirder story... Stacy Mungo lives in my precinct, and they moved the polling place after her runoff opponent complained that the polling place was across the street from where she lived... Mungo is Republican and Kemp, her opponent is Dem...

Stacy Mungo

I wonder which of the fellas you are talking about. I’m pulling for Suzelle Josey in that race. I met her at the Roy Moore rallies at the Supreme Court when she challenged CNN reporter Tom Foreman outside after the trial when he told a blatant lie about Justice Moore on national tv. Of course, he just laughed at us and walked off. She wouldn’t know me from Adam’s housecat, but I remembered her and have heard her many times on local talk radio. She is passionate about this country and very conservative. I hope she does well.

Unfortunately I live in District 25 and couldn’t vote for her...I did vote today by the way...

Filing deadline is mid-March. If you don’t get enough signatures by then and turn them in, you don’t get to make the primary ballot.

However, you can be conventioned in after the primary, to be sure no one else gets 35% of the last primary vote. Our state convention is in 10 days so it will be handled then.
