It's election day in NJ, MS, LA, the Northern Marianas Islands and....
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Senate is currently controlled by the democrats by two seats. It'll be an interesting night.
Damnit I just moved to one of these states and I can’t vote until I get a new drivers license (my other state’s Dl is good until 2016 what a waste of money.HEY WAIT I don’t need a drivers license to vote the illegals don’t!
PolitiFact N.J.: Chris Christie claims Republicans will buck midterm trend
Published: Sunday, November 06, 2011, 3:45 PM
Even if they don't win a new seat, Republicans can still declare victory on Tuesday.
Gov. Chris Christie explained how in a recent radio interview. He said that during the last 48 years every governor in the midterm of his or her first term has lost seats in the Legislature, except Jim McGreevey in 2003.
PolitiFact New Jersey researched state election history and found the governor is right. Besides McGreevey, the last governor to pick up seats in a midterm election was Robert Meyner in the 1950s.
So if the Republicans don't get their clocks cleaned in New Jersey, they've done well.
Va. Election results
PING for later reading...
Say what? All you need to do is register. Fill out the form and send-r-in.
Loyola is a shoe in win in the Tidewater district many are ticked off Obama stole the military town.
I just voted.
The only thing worth noting is that quite a few of the Republicans in my Upstate New York district ran unopposed. At least half of them. The most race for the most powerful position, County Executive, had no opponent for the Republican incumbent.
Democrats didn’t even field candidates for many.
I don’t know if anything can be taken from that, but I don’t recall it happening in the past.
We voted on some local issues out here in my neck of the woods.
The Obamabots are out there.
The guy in front of me-rather loudly-said, “My name is so and so and I live at such and such and I’m a registered democrat! I can’t wait to vote for Barack Obama again in 2012!”
The polling personnel reminded him that we aren’t supposed to discuss parties and candidates at that particular location.
Of course, I had to chime in. “They call that electioneering, don’t they?”
ping to check later.
HEAVY Turnout reported in Suburban Indianapolis for the Mayor’s race.
Local Media is already dropping hints about, AND LAMENTING ABOUT, the enthusiasm gap.
Millage vote for me today.
Iditots picked a hell of a time to ask taxpayers for $22 million to build a new school or refurbish the old one.
I voted no BTW
I have moved a lot in my lifetime and I am old scholl and don’t think you can vote until new plates and drivers license are obtained.I have only lived in the state for a few weeks.My old drivers license is still good until 2016 and getting a new one is the fastest way to register 22 days before an election.(Some states (NC) because of Obama corruption has no more rules or DL requirement to vote)
sorry to be a lard azz
I live up here in Lafayette, and I was under the impression that the dems were going to win the mayor’s race in Indy. Am wrong?
Ohio will close at 7:30 EST
“Loyola is a shoe in win in the Tidewater district many are ticked off Obama stole the military town.”
That’s my district. I don’t think it’ll be that easy. It’s competitive and the democrats have been fighting this one hard. I hope for a win, but think it’ll be close.
Issue 2: YES
Issue 3: YES
Polls close at 7:30.
GET OUT AND VOTE !!
