I am told by close relatives outside of Las Vegas in Clark County that the casino-Reid collusion is literally stealing the NV election as I type this, and that Freepers had better prepare for Reid stealing this election. God forbid.

Then I hope that Sharron Angle has some great lawyers ready to go!!!

Arkansas Update [not much info yet]

As of noon, about 280,000 absentee, early, and current eligibles have cast votes.

That represents about 17.5% of the total eligible votership of 1.6 million.

Ad far as I am concerned, if John Thune can’t get Noem over the finish line, his presidential aspirations are over before they are started.

You have to deliver your electorate to be taken seriously.

There is an article at NRO about Harrahs working to pressure employees to vote for the indecent POS Reid. I just called the corporate headquarters and posted at the FR link to the story

Story link http://www.nationalreview.com/battle10/251906/collusion-harrahs-bosses-put-squeeze-employees-vote-reid-elizabeth-crum

I just called the Corporate offices in Vegas to tell then I would not be staying at any of their properties when I next go to Vegas. I mentioned the article at NRO and the emails from Reids staffers to Marybel Batjer, Harrah’s vice president of public policy and communications. The women who answered said she heard nothing about it and wasn’t pressured by anyone to vote for Reid. I asked her to see if she’s on the list they are keeping of who voted and who didn’t.

She told me people post all kinds of things on the internet that are not true. I said this was a journalist at NRO and they wouldn’t post such a charge without proof. I suggested she ask the executives at her office. Naturally she didn’t like that suggestion.

If you really want to make your objections known, call these people and give them hell.

Good turnout here in rural central OK. Voted for Mary Fallin (R) for governor and for Sen. Coburn. We had 11 state questions on the ballot, including banning Sharia Law (which is driving libs crazy), making English the official state language, and letting Oklahomas opt out of health insurance.

I LIKE the way you guys think.

I will have to keep that in mind for our representatives, esp the Sharia law part considering the number of mosques in this state.

Raining steadily in Dallas/Ft. Worth area since about 10:00 AM. It's predicted to continue for the rest of the day.

This should depress turnout. Maybe enough to boot Eddie Bernice Johnson out of office.

Ohio, I went to Charleston on Saturday for the John Raese rally. Got lots of pics of Sarah and as she was leaving, I shook her hand and told her that I pray for her every day. She put her hand over her heart and said, “Thank you for that.” I thought of you. I didn’t get a kiss though, lol.

Guess that was OK. I live in THE most conservative Congressional district in America.

Tonight, I hope Sarah Palin asks Rove why he chose not to help Christine rather than bash her after she won the nomination. cant wait to hear what he has to say about that one. Should make for some interesting chat.

Just voted in my central Grand Rapids, MI district.

Observations:

- No waiting, maybe 6 people ahead of me getting checked in and only 3 of the voting booths were in use.

- All of the booths, except 1, were non-electronic. No one I saw used the electronic booth.

- THEY CHECKED ID!!!! PRAISE JESUS!!!!

- Our ballots were “fill in the holes”

- Some jack-wagon decided to be cute and leave a DNC voter guide in my booth. Quickly crumpled. None of the other booths had this in there, so I just assume it to have been a dimbat voter forgetting to take it with him.

- In 2008 I had to wait 45 minutes to an hour to vote. I was in and out in 10 minutes (voted straight GOP)

- I was #372 @2:00pm! My district is mostly African American. That is HUGE. Very low turnout. Maybe because they actually checked ID?

- Felt like a million dollars walking home! Beautiful mild sunny fall Michigan day. Played Boston’s More Than A Feeling all the way!

My daughter and I voted just after lunch-break time in PA — Bucks County, District 8 (where there has already been a charge/counter-charge of voter fraud) — Very steady turn-out, definitely heavier than usual for a mid-term. No idea what it means as far as a trend. This is a mixed-bag area that has been leaning more Dem. each election. We’ll see ... I’m praying hard :)

Charleston, WV: 1:15 PM

Beautiful weather.

No lines at the polls.

Chatted up the poll workers, in their opinion it has been a little higher than expected, not too much.

FWIW, I've seen a light scattering of Raese signs on front lawns. But the ONLY Manchin signs I see are on buildings owned by unions, law firms, and companies that live on the state government teat.

Yeah, who know what heavy turnout means?

I’m hoping that it’s good because if people were satisfied with the status quo, they wouldn’t be out.

The dems have gotten a lot of people angry in the last two years.

Time will tell.

I’m praying hard too.

Hi, rodguy! I saw Sarah on with Megyn and Hemmer on Sunday and at the end, Megyn mentioned that Sarah would be commentating tonight with Rove. I could swear I heard/saw Sarah say "Can't wait." WOO-HOO!

Heard on the radio that at a polling station in Taunton, the challenger Shaunna O'Connell ran into democrat rep Jim Fagan and offered her hand only to be told to crawl back into the hole she came from.

Classy.

Just voted. At 1:15 there were lines. Poll worker said it was close to or as busy as it was during the presidential election.

The bad news, I live in Cook County Illinois so not all of those were Republicans.

The good news, My district US-6 (Peter Roskam) is the least liberal part of the county.

At 9a.m., I was voter # 561 at Dare Elementary in Yorktown, VA There was no lines or waiting however.

I voted at 6:15 just across the Coleman at the VFD in Hayes. Only two folks ahead of me at the time. Rob Wittman won't have a problem getting re-elected.

I voted, here in Indiana County Pa, at 12:15. There was a line in front of me - mostly Republicans. The voting site was in a mostly Democrat area. The poll workers did not look happy. I was #330 - not too bad for our district. :-)

A handicapped man in front of me was being assisted in his voting. I did not notice if the woman who brought him in filled in his ballot, but I noticed, when I was leaving, that her van had an ‘Obama’ sticker on the bumper. hmmmmm

If Reid wis declared the winner, Nevada won’t see my bucks for the duration. No casinos, motels, restaurants. And if I have to drive through the state, I’ll fill up my tank before my tires hit NV and hope my tank’s big enough to get me through to the other side. I hope any organizations planning conventions or meetings will consider having them in a Red state instead of NV.

Voted at 10:30 this morning. S/E Phoenix by the Desert Vista High School. I was #87. People at the polls thought that it was a good turn out. Many early ballots here. I asked when they would be counted and they said a couple of days later, not just if it was close?

Virginia: Here in Yuppie Acres, Alexandria, turnout was roughly what I remember in last year’s gubernatorial race.

One reader in one of Virginia’s not-really-hard-fought 1st Congressional District (Krystal Ball may be a lot of fun at Christmas parties, but she’s not a competitive candidate) says he too, finds turnout comparable to last year’s gubernatorial race; while another in the same district finds turnout way, way down at his usual polling place.

Here in North Stafford, VA, 1st Cong District, I went in at 7AM. One person was getting in his car as I walked in and I was the only voter there. One race to vote for and I sure didn't vote for Krystal Ball (her liberal parents must have been high when they named her).

When I was scanning in my paper ballot one other voter walked in. Very light turnout at that time of the morning.

I wonder why early ballots are counted later if they've had them longer. They should have them counted already.
