Election Day in So. Cal

Election day in So. California and it's a hot one too!

It must be in the mid-80's in November and I'm in Manhattan Beach, just a few miles from the beach. The news says it's pouring cats and dogs in Washington State.


Well, I voted early this morning. I was one of the first at my precinct and the first voter at one of the new touch screen machines....

....and guess what? It didn't work! I had 4 of the voting helpers around trying to fix the machine. They finally set me up on another machines and closed the broken one down.

"It's going to be a long day..." was the response from one of the helpers. I feel for them. It is going to be a long day; and a long night from what I heard on the news going into work. Seems I'm not the only one with a broken ballot machine. I need to turn this radio off.

Anyways, my first thoughts were not ones of "Conspiracy!" or "They've fixed the machines!" or even "They're preventing me from voting!"

Had they handed me a paper ballot and told me that I had to vote that way, I would have been fine with that. Hey, machine's break. I saw at least 4 broken machines (cars), one with only 3 wheels on my drive into work this morning.

Calm down people, we'll get through this.

Do yourselves a favor and turn your radios off today. Stay away from the internet news sights if you can....and just go vote.

I don't think it makes a difference what the news predicts or what rumors are floating out there.
Just go vote.

We'll find out the results in due time.
