Election Day - Working the Polls

I just returned from working a poll on the North side of town for Councilman Shoaff. We had a steady stream of people from 6-9am and the weather wasn't terribly bad although the wind didn't help. I couldn't get a read on the number of Henry vs Kelty supporters - of course the guy working the poll for Kelty was sure that there were more Kelty voters. Nothing out of the ordinary to report; a pretty uneventful morning.

Now I'm off to work the phone banks for Tom Henry - see everyone tonight at the Grand Wayne Center...

UPDATE: I almost forgot. The guy working the poll for Kelty wouldn't say anything to any African Americans. He told me "most blacks are Democrats because they like the government handouts" - unbelievable. Vote Tom Henry, a mayor for ALL the people...

You are really surprised are you? It is the subtext of the Republican message.

I walked from my home in West Central to the Baker Street Station to vote this morning (and walked to my office afterward - downtown living is pretty damn cool!) and noticed there wasn't a single Kelty sign to be seen...it's like they gave up on downtown...imagine that!

I agree with you, otto.

There's an sublte message of desired inequality in some of the Republican message. And of course a no-so-subtle message to homosexuals with the Kelty campaign.

It's still alarming, though, when you hear things, like Jeff did.

Good coverage, Jeff. Did you learn who the guy was?

He told me his name but I didn't write it down and I don't remember it. I don't think I'd publish it anyway as it wouldn't do any good...

Right. I'm sure he's not notable about town.
