I don’t live in Wisconsin but heard the report on the news that my old live in state Minnesota was busing in union people to “get out the vote”. I leave that description up to each one to imagine. I always heard it’s not who votes it is who counts the votes that determines an election. Everyone keep praying for a huge Walker today.

“Does anyone know FReeper STD?”

I hope STD is not a reference to a current or former ‘ahem’ medical issue.

Likewise on Daily Kos. Not the usual orgy of orgasmic glee that they usually have when they think they are going to win.

Has anyone checked the DUmp? I would, but honestly I fear for my blood pressure over there reading that sewer.

Double down on the AMENS! Support from the Bay Area. On Wisconsin! Just to let the freepers know, there is a measure on the ballot in San Jose, CA. today, to reform the city pension system. Mayor Chuck Reed has put his political life on the line. Come on San Jose, do the right thing!

It appears that ID is not required (thanks to the Dept of Just-Us*) but residency can be challenged.

Interesting...

Check out this gem from a DUmmy:

“If you polled all citizens (not just registered or likely voters) rather than had elections, dems would always win hands down. The main reason republicans win in off year and local and special elections is the conservative base is mostly old and upper middle aged folks who actually bother with those elections.

The liberal base is mostly young people (college kids = really apathetic towards voting..... and 20 somethings and 30 somethings also kind of apathetic towards voting) and minorities/poor people (really apathetic towards voting as well)”

If we polled citizens rather than had elections!! God forbid that a citizen actually get off his ass to go somewhere to make his or her opinion known and official. That would be too much trouble. Oh and it would ensure that each opinion would be counted only once, and we can’t have that! Unbelievable!

RE: #359, that is priceless.

Well, they would hate me then, as in my perfect world I would limit voting to people who actually pay taxes and/or property owners.

You can register to vote and vote on the same day in Wisconsin?

No chance of fraud there.

You also must post a signature or can be refused a ballot.

Honestly the Dems may not win another election in WI once it is required to prove who who are via ID.

It's telling the DUmmy doesn't consider the possibility that there might be more republican votes - because we have jobs and own businesses and can't spend hours at the polls.

Stephen Hayes ‏@stephenfhayes

Waukesha Cty (hugely pro-Walker) turnout on target to exceed 2008 pres election. I'm told it could reach 75 percent.

This is a Big F'ing Deal; Walker's margins will depend on Waukesha County's tallies swamping Dane County's.

Just got back from voting in Waukesha County. Had to wait in line for about 20 minutes. The line snaked through the school gym. Over 1000 people had already voted at 2 pm.

After that, I drove past the Delafield Town hall and the parking lot was jammed with cars.

I’m still worried because the unions have been busing their voters to the polls for all the days of early voting.

Weekly Standard also saying Dane backing off 80-85% turnout and back into the 70% range. Better than 2010 but not as good as 2008.

They HAVE to have 2008 numbers out of Dane Co.

Agreed, and they won't reach them, though they will report last, just in case they can get a judge to prevent the polls from closing.

We live in a township. I voted at 9:30. Was #483. I have been in this area for 16 years and have never missed an election. This is the highest number I’ve ever been. Usually I’m in the 20’s. Even during the 2008 election, I was only in the 200’s.

Go Washington County, the most conservative county in the state, bring on your A game!

Another nice little note:

Waukesha and Washington Counties will not disclose turnout percentages. Will simply announce votes tallied.

Makes it far harder for Milwaukee and Dane County to push in votes last minute.

On Twitter:

W.H. (axelrod) on WI: “a race where one side is outspending the other by a ratio of at least 8 to 1 probably won’t tell us much about a future race.”

If nothing else I like the tone of the national Dems.

If turnout is really as strong as they’re saying throughout the rest of Wisconsin, the judges are going to have to keep the polls in Dane and Milwaukee open for at least two additional hours tonight. They’re going to need *a lot* of fraudulent votes to overcome what I hearing.

Our 80% plus democrat cities are Milwaukee (in Milwaukee County) and Madison (in Dane County). There are other Dem strongholds in upper WI too. We have a Tri County area of Republicans that is called WOW. It stands for Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington counties. We need them to be at 100%.

The democrats have been voting for two weeks because they had the students all vote from the Universities before they left for their out of state homes.
