Cross Your Fingers and Toes

... and let's get ready to rumble. We were at the polls at fifteen minutes after six this morning. I was pleasantly surprised to see that, even though the polls had only opened minutes earlier, there were a dozen people signed in to vote ahead of us. Win or lose, I see a high turnout coming, even in our sleepy little corner of the world.

A note, particularly for Ohio voters... Given the latest turnaround by the courts, once again allowing Karl Rove's so-called "monitors" at primarily minority polling places, you may run into these Bush representatives challenging your right to vote. Even if they stall your attempt to vote, if you know that you are legitimately registered, you can still ask for a paper ballot. The election officials will be responsible for investigating your right to legally vote and then have your vote counted in the total. In most states they also have to notify you later that your vote was recorded.

Do not let these people shut down the process.
