Post what you're seeing, hearing in your district, county or state during the day and evening- anecdotal or otherwise!
Voted in northern Virginia (Jim Moron’s district) around 10:30. Big line, took 20 minutes to get to the machine, noted most (maybe 20 out of 25)of the people in line had GOP ballots in hand. Wouldn’t it be sweet if ....
Nah, this is NoVA, it couldn’t happen. Or could it?
Well, I was shocked because this was a tall black guy.
Just think of the trouble that would give Karl Rove (or better yet, Charles Krauthammer).
Give her 12 more years, and she’ll be voting with me.
And hopefully throwing lead downrange with me as well (if I ever get my guns out of that damn pond they fell in to)
I’ll take a shot at this.
As I understand it, Democrats are notorious for being lackluster voters. Dem voters include many young people who have heads still full of mush from recent schooling, and the welfare gang which doesn’t get up early and often doesn’t even know it’s election day, especially for midterm elections. These two voter bases compose a large % of their group.
Young people who two years ago were looking for Hope and Change cause it sounded too cool, are not particularly moved to fight hangovers to go vote for, as an example, a Chris Coons. Same with the welfare class.
So a LARGE turnout depends on which party is doing the large turnout.
In summary, well there’s really no correct answer as to what a large turnout means as we don’t know, until the results I suppose, WHO’S doing the turning out.
EXCEPT.....a large turnout for mid-terms, as many pundits and popular sentiment have been vocal, is unusual. The common thought is that most likely a large turnout will likely be due to Republicans as this group expresses more voting passion in the various polls, AND there’s a visceral mood in this country to get out and tell Obama to stuff it where the sun don’t shine. The welfare class will probably sit this one out.
I think you may have mis-read FUBU (For us, by us). A major garment maker targeting Americans of color.
done!! Voted LAZ for my Rep, Senate, and Governor!!!
I'm not telling anyone how I'll vote this afternoon, but it rhymes with MEPUBLICAN!
You have to put spaces in between it. If you type < space i space > then it will show up like < i > and won’t work to create HTML.
I’ve learned the hard way that HTML is persnickety and likes to be all cozily together.
Voted in Farmer City,Il. this morning. A most beautiful sight on the ballot, no dems running for any county positions!
Fair weather across the rest of the country -- no excuse not to vote!
2010 CHANGE I can believe in: (1) Reduce size of Government (2) Prosecute lawbreakers of Wall St, Main St, Pennsylvania Ave & the border (3) Let people create jobs....to name a few
I knew that meaning. Considering the person wearing it, that’s why I wondered if it had others.
That does not bode well for obama if blacks are expressing that attitude.
I haven’t given up on Mass.
I would remind that when the chips were down, Mass. went out and elected Scott Brown.
Husband is from Mass. He and his brother...fevered Conservatives. His mother? Well she’s a lib but she’s now almost in tears over having voted for Obama.
As well she should be.
Yeah, but they're probably just a bunch of racists. /sarc
“Until today, Im not making this up, I had no idea what GOTV meant.”
LOL, Fishtalk! Well, none of us were born knowing what it meant.
I don’t know what it will take to get rid of Mikulski. Without exception she votes wrong on every issue; and yet she keeps winning by huge margins, even in conservative counties.
In order for this revolution to be won, we need to be given a fair fight, and I don’t know if we are. I got an e-mail from our Candidate’s office that 3 out of 5 machines at one polling place were switching republican votes to the democrats. That imo should be grounds for a felony. Any voting machine that has been manipulated or registering wrong, should hold those in charge of that machine on felony charges of theft. This is one of the most precious Constitutional Rights given to us and can not be taken away.
That’s certainly possible. I didn’t get a REALLY good look at the shirt and could have misread the U as an O.
That’s why I was wondering if there was something out there similar to it or having a different meaning.
That makes much more sense.
I wonder if the shirt manufacturer is aware of that.
TODAYS VOTE FRAUD
brought to you by the D.O.J., led by Eric Holder
for the DNC, unions, and the undocumented Obama.
Union Accused of Voter Fraud Involving Mentally Handicapped
Authorities in Crow Wing County are investigating possible voter fraud
involving people with mental disabilities . a large group of mentally handicapped
people were told whom to vote for by mental health staff members and that staff filled
out the ballots themselves without the disabled voters close by."
(Rochester) Offering Voters "Rides to Polls" (Coalition of Black Trade Unionists)
They told people to call the Rochester, NY office of the
COALITION OF BLACK TRADE UNIONISTS for these free rides,
and also said that the information is up on their website."
National Organization Warns of Illegal Immigrant Voters
On October 28, WSBTV and the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported
that their recent comparison of jury duty records and voter registrations
found hundreds of non-citizens registered to vote and hundreds actually voting!"
Vote Fraud Woes Already Mar Mid-Term Elections
some Nevadans who have tried voting early for Republican
Senate nominee Sharron Angle instead have seen
Democrat Harry Reids name appear on their electronic voting machines.
Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and Genesis Robinson,
his campaign manager, face voter-fraud charges. In an apparent re-election tactic,
they allegedly completed 92 absentee-ballot applications with the names
of Floridians who never requested them or who had moved away.
Bucks County, Pennsylvania officials are investigating 500 apparently
fraudulent absentee-ballot applications. Also, the Pennsylvania Voter Assistance
Office sent citizens letters encouraging them to apply for absentee ballots.
No such office exists."
Well you made me smile.
And your post reminded of a local restaurant’s commercial that also always makes me smile.
It’s a little eatery down the road here in the swamps of DELMARVA. Guy tells about how you can get breakfast all day and not to forget to go out to vote. “Of course I would never tell you how to vote,” the announcer says, then you hear this big ROAR of an elephant.
“BJ’s on the Bay,” the announcer continues, “always with conservative prices”.
Makes me smile everytime I hear it. I guess the guy’s a Republican, you think?
Thanks all. I’m starting to get nervous again.
Just read Harry Reid’s internal polls show him up 5-8 points??
So instead of the < character, type in < , and the > becomes >.
So the <i> becomes <i> ...
(and to make it more confusing, in my text above, when I needed to SHOW you an ampersand, I had to TYPE & and for the semicolons, I had to TYPE ; ).
Hubby and I just returned from polls here in TN. We were told that this is the first time they had ever seen a steady stream of voters ....starting at 7am....with NO dead periods!
Thanks for mentioning your state and congressional district.
These reports are great to read, and it helps when I can relate the turnout, etc. w a specific district and candidate.
That’s the problem I have with the computerized stuff.
Anyone who knows how to write code and do something like that.
There are enough computer savvy people with the skills necessary.
How did your candidate find that out and what does he (she?) plan on doing about it?
Early report of heavy turnout in IL.
Can someone who knows more than me tell me if this is good or bad for us?
I voted at 6:15 and was the 16th voter to use the paper ballot. Probably an equal number used the machine. Felt about average, not heavy or light.
Well, I be giving away my age, but I used to hear it years ago and it meant F (you know what that stands for) Up Beyond Repair
Let's hope there are no dead voters, either.
Front page article in the Brainerd Dispatch today about voter fraud with the elderly (they were instructed to vote straight DFL). Very interesting that it was on the front page
Then hubby & I went to vote @ 9am (earlier than usual for us)--- I was # 67 --- which I normally have seen around 12-1pm at our voting place --- so higher than normal turnout. We are in a generally republican area (small polling place though).
Then hubby went out to the hunting land and just called me in amazement. He told me that from our place to the land, there were tons of Emmer signs (rep for gov), but none to be seen for Dayton (yep -- Mark, chicken sh## Dayton, democrap). Hubby told me that in the past he would see lots of dem signs up, but NONE this year.
Oh hoping that MN will finally wise up this year and put Dayton out to pasture. We have been talking about moving out of here and the election of Dayton will speed things up faster than anything else.
“Nah, this is NoVA, it couldnt happen. Or could it?”
Moron is the most accurately named politician in the Commonwealth. Anything is possible. If he loses tonight, and we should know relatively early, this is not a tsunami: it’s an extinction event.
Liberation Tuesday 2010 Ping!
That’s okay, I don’t mind waiting. Then I can say I voted on NOVEMBER 2, 2010—THE DAY THAT TURNED THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON ITS HEAD. :-)
Just hoping this big storm passes quickly so me and the kiddos can get out before too late! :-)
Wow - you’re good!
....I'm north of Melbourne.
Heavy turnout in South Carolina, being compared to 2008:
No, that was FUBAR...beyond all repair...FUBO has only one meaning I am aware of
No, that was FUBAR...beyond all repair...FUBO has only one meaning I am aware of
No spaces in the code I used below
If you put spaces in the HTML code It will just be printed and not interpreted
Ooops, sorry, hardly awake here. Thanks
I received notice that I hadn’t signed my envelope when I sent in my ballot. I drove 30 miles to get to the county voting area to sign it yesterday.
I really thought I had signed it. I even told my husband to make sure to sign his envelope. Hope it wasn’t messed with!
We both voted straight Republican.
I also spent two hours as a poll watcher in another precinct that is heavily Dem. Turnout was low. 197 electronic and 125 paper as of 11 am. Voters appeared evenly split to a slight Dem majority. Good for us.
People wanting to vote Republican were surprised to find the machine was coming up Democrat.
Local authorities were called, the machines re calibrated, and the problem was said to be resolved.
yeah, I saw that most examples had spaces in them. I didn’t realize the spaces negated the html. that’s an easier way to explain it to someone. thx.
grey_whiskers’ post didn’t though and still showed up - pretty clever.
