Head to the polls
I was surprised by two things. First, I was surprised that many people had already voted. Second, I was surprised at how many people were at the polling station. There were the usual six or seven election officials... and another six or seven observers. Every move by every election official was being watched by an observer. I couldn't figure out if they were non-partisan or if they were representing a particular party (or parties, as the case may be).
And, of course, no one volunteered any information; it was all quite subdued.
As to my vote, as usual, I voted for democrats, republicans, and independents. I've never been a party man, preferring to vote for individuals.
We have twelve hours left here in the Commonwealth: Get out and vote!
