    For that, I thank you.

    We voted by mail last week. Straight Democratic. In fact, I can't see voting for a red ever again in my life. Unless maybe Jesus ran... but after two scoops and reds gleefully separating the kids and parents, I can't see that he'd consider being a red.
    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.

    We voted this morning at 7:00. It was pouring rain. The line stretched around the side of the Elementary School that is our polling place.

    A neighbor and friend on mine who is always an election volunteer said there had been people lined up at the door when the polls opened. She said so far it looks like the largest turn out since 2008.

    Another election official came out and apologized for the long line and stated "We have been having problems with the voting machine."


    Boy, doesn't that give you confidence. We use optical scan ballots and the machine that reads them was having "issues".


    I vote in one of the few solidly Democratic Voting precincts in the county. --- I'm just saying..... hhhhhmmmmm ......are they having problems countywide??? I don't know.

    I vote in person, sending it by mail, although usually the mail system works fine but, I was expecting my monthly bill for my healthcare provider and didn't receive it in Oct. for Nov. Called the provider, they said it was sent on 10/10. Didn't get it. Called back, told me it was sent 1/22. It's Nov. 6 and I still haven't got it. Due date was 11/1. Threat in bold letters read on the top of the bill, always reads,, If we haven't received your check by 11/1 you will be cancelled.

    Our voting place (the gym-atorium at the community center) was buzzing at full capacity at 6:15am.
    I mean it was easily 3x busier than most elections. Even when the $5m new fire station was on the ballot the place was only at half-capacity.

    You made that clear in your first post. I was just curious of your take on the question. It was advertised and named for victim’s rights, but reading it, it removed rights of the victims family, and restricted information about the status and location of the perpetrator from the victim.

    Well the people have spoken, I don't feel too bad because a good number of folks got out to vote. I have always believed in a majority rules kinda thing, whether I agree or not. If it is not the way I see it, I should change or do something to change it. So right now I will do a shot of Jose and a Busch beer, that is the best I can do.
