Campaign Night Blogfest

I don't get a lot of traffic on my site, so it's probably not the best place to host a campaign night blog fest. However, if one of the bigger sites don't do it, I'm happy to open up for election night comments about the returns and about television coverage. I'm drinking a Red Bull, heading to the fire station to vote, then settling in for election night coverage and blogging. One hour until the polls close in southern Idaho.

I've turned off the comment verification for tonight to make it easier to post. I'll turn it back on if things go badly awry, and by tomorrow in any event.

Turn out in Saliville is about 16%, according to the poll workers I just asked. Pretty low, especially considering that I could see Sali's place fro the entrance to the polling station. Sec of State predicted 26% statewide.

I took a picture of my ballot with my cell phone camera as recommended by the Adamson campaign; we'll see if it eventually yields a Taco Gratis.

Alan, I'll drink a pint for you at Drinking Liberally tonight. (Wasn't having it on Tuesdays a good idea?) I stuck to the Democratic ballot myself and got in some good county votes.

Randy Stapilus posts county on-line results for the election here, http://www.ridenbaugh.com/index.php/2006/05/23/election-night-2/ if you want to check the on-line results.

I crossed over, and got to cast lots more ballots than if I voted the blue pages (literally; the R pages were green, and the D pages were blue). I skipped the white pages, judges running unopposed. I don't like to encourage them.

I too voted in the R primary. I have to admit it was kind of enjoyable to see "No candidate filed" in all three of the Republican district 19 legislature primaries.

I was also a bit upset, glancing at the D side, to see no Democrats in the races for County Commisioner, County Treasurer, Attorney General, or Sec. of State (I know there's a write-in candidate for the last one).

43rd State Blues and Red State Rebels have both opened up election blogs, so I'll defer to them. Head on over to one of them.

Okay, I can't post a comment on 43rd RSB. I'll try Red State Rebels.
