Getting the gay vote out?

I took part in the state early voting and voted yesterday. Did my routine of getting a sample ballot, making all of my selections with some reasonable research (I don't do straight tickets). One thing that really surprised me at this location (school off of Cook road in southern Durham) was the diversity of the group. There were all kinds of people from all walks of life there. It was just kind of cool how Durham attracts such diversity (and quite gay friendly).

I was pleasantly surprised to see how many gay people were in line waiting to vote. Must have seen like 3 lesbian couples there, several gay guys with some of them couples..., we're talking like 30% of the people in line. It was just interested to see so many.

Anyway, my vote is cast and not worry about it any more. Just want election day to hurry up and get here.

Way to go, Joe... Democracy is so sexy!

I'll be in Sunnyvale, CA during election week for Blue Coat classes. I've requested my vote-by-mail paperwork from the SJC registrar of voters, but it has yet to arrive. This election is so important to me, I'll drive back over here from the bay area if it doesn't show up in time.

Hope you had a great weekend.

I'm hoping everyone votes early so that when I go to vote next Tuesday, there won't be any lines.

I voted Friday at the main election headquarters downtown on Corporation Ave. It was fairly crowded as well.
I'm glad to say I've done my part and hope everyone else gets out there, too. This one's truly important....

I don't usually vote straight ticket, either. I did a bunch of research on a candidate whose name was not on the ballot, so I still voted R on that one. But I don't think she's actually going to win.

American loves dynasties, and the other candidate's grandma was a congress woman for 90 years or some such craziness.
