All That’s Left Now Is The Voting

Make those calls, walk your neighborhood and contact a campaign near you and offer to do whatever you can tomorrow. Getting out the vote (and voting yourself obviously) is all that is left to do. Man Of American Dissent has been diligently making calls into key districts all evening through Call For Change (in between taking care of the rugrats and cooking dinner for me, his sniffly, cranky, sick wife). I probably won’t be posting until late in the day Tuesday since I will be volunteering for the Darcy Burner campaign and driving people to the polls in this nasty Seattle weather. I hope Election Day 2006 will be one to remember, and not in a bad way. More as the results start coming in.

Oh, and if you or anyone you know has problems voting, don’t leave your polling place and call 1.888.DEM.VOTE (thanks for the tip Miss Betty Cracker) and Howard Dean promises that someone will come to your polling place and help.

Happy Voting!

In precincts 7, 19, 51 in Philly, PA, the crowds are going wild. Inside several voting locations, individuals have poured white out onto the polling books and the poll workers are allowing voters to go into the polls and vote without first registering. Several individuals are on hand demanding that voters vote straight Democrat.

RNC lawyers have headed to the scene of the incidents, which are occurring in mostly hispanic precinct locations. The District Attorney has also been contacted.

More from the ground: Reports of voter intimidation by son-in-law of Philadelphia City Commissioner in 19th Ward. Carlos Mantos is not allowing Republican poll watchers with valid poll-watching certificates monitor polling places.

And that sounds like more Karl Rove hijinks, anonymous.

Well, how interesting to see the Mormon fantasy writer Orson Scott Card making a long-winded appearance here at LGND. (I think he shouldn't go anywhere without an editor.)

I'd just like to wish all the Democratic candidates Good Luck. And to say that my old buddy Daniel Ortega has won the presidency in Nicaragua. Now, if only Jimmy Carter were overseeing the voting in the USA, maybe there wouldn't be so much nail-biting.

Sorry Anonymous but I've deleted your comment. If you have something to say, feel free, but if Orson Scott Card wants his whole piece published on my blog, he'll have to pay for the priviledge or come write it word for word like everyone else, and be prepared to defend it for himself.

Been watching the cnn America Votes 2006 on CNN all night. The D's are looking good!
Thanks for being there thru this trying time. You are quite the cheerleader, miss.

Am going to see Franti and Spearhead tomorrow in Philly. Hope you got the CD and are grooving on the Up Looking days.

Congrats on taking the House. Interesting how the South seems to have such "close" races.

Personally, I'd like to see the Senate 50/50 and make Cheney show up every day. I think he should always be where we can see him.

I've been working my tail off on the Dereck Kilmer campaign (26th LD) and we took it in a rout.

Kilmer, Derek Dem 16,243 60.68
Hines, Jim GOP 10,526 39.32

Derek's the first Democratic state senator form the 26th since 1986.

It's a Trifecta in the 26th. Pat Lantz will be returning to Olympia and will be joined by Larry Seaquist.

I'm so happy.

Congrats all. It just makes me chuckle to realize how blue that US/Canada border is. Maybe there's something liberal in that Maple Syrup. I mean, look a Vermont!!! A socialist, no less.

Congrats to Nancy Pelosi. First woman Speaker of the House

LG,

On the Orson Scott Card issue...fair enough. Congrats to Dems in their wins. I sincerely hope that our country is better off as a result.
