the dealing's done this thing is stacked

My contribution to the whole Election Day hysteria isn't nearly as detailed as Priya's, but for what it's worth:

I find it deeply weird to be related to someone running for Congress. S doesn't. He thinks it's cool to watch her vote counts.

Don't get excited, Loyal Reader. My sister-in-law is a libertarian in Indiana. According to S's brother, all they're getting is a higher class of junk mail.

Still, it makes the whole thing a little more interesting. Especially when CNN reports that half the voting machines in the district weren't turned on all morning because the volunteers didn't know how to work them.

For my part, I learned today that if your identification doesn't match the name on the voter rolls (if, for instance, you changed your name and they didn't process that change for a reason that the question-answering people can't fully explain) the folks at the polling station are disinclined to record your vote.

Good to know.

I think PTSD should claim credit for today's events--esp the resignation of the sect. of defence :-)

Does that mean "we" won't be staying the course after all? I was just getting used to that plan.

So you had polling issues also...we had provisional ballots since they failed to record our change of address...apparently

No, she didn't win. And at least you got provisional ballots. I was sent packing rather abruptly.
