Election Day

Today is Election Day and it is one of the biggest election days in recent memory.  Usually our area has a 20% or lower voter turn-out rate--even lower than that for non-presidential elections--but it looks like this election turn out is setting records here and in many other places around the country.  The news is reporting that voter turn out for this mid-term election is the highest since 1914 which is a pretty big deal.

If you voted today, good for you!  And I don't really care who people vote for as long as they get out and vote their conscience and do their due diligence to understand the issues and the candidates.  I can't remember a more contentious election as this particular election seems to be hitting all of the hot buttons--Republicans vs Democrats, healthcare, immigration, manipulation of public opinion via social media, etc.  It should be a dramatic rest of the evening...
