VOTING!


(pic from justsaynews.com)

That's right! Today is the first Tuesday of November 2010, so it's voting day here in the United States! It's a midterm election, so all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up and 37 out of 100 Senate seats are up for grabs. If you haven't voted yet, please, go out and get it done! Life isn't a videogame, so get your ass off the couch and go vote!

I voted at around 4:00pm. I had to deal with a line stretching out the door of the voting building (which is unusual for my precinct)... but the wait was worth it, because as I looked around and saw others waiting to vote, I was pleased that so many had turned out. Yeah, I believe in democracy. We don't live in a Borderlands style world here, folks. :P

Anyway, I'm sitting here watching the returns and it looks like the Republicans have gained control of the House... so depending on your political beliefs you can either cry or rejoice about that. Mostly I'm interested in seeing how some state propositions turn out, such as Prop 19 in California (weed) and a proposition in Colorado regarding abortion. I'm a political science guy, so it's interesting to watch election returns and see how votes end up coming out. *shrug*

So happy Voting Day to everyone!

I voted. Prop 19 failed in Cali, I voted for it but didn't really care what happened, the extra tax revenue would have been nice now.
