owl wtf
Today was parent-teacher conference day, so we visited two schools and drove past another. All of which were voting centers. I figured there wouldn't be as much hoopla as usual, but I hadn't expected nothing. Not one campaigner, not one sign. The only people we saw in the halls were teachers and parents on their way to or from meeting each other. The only people in the cafeteria, where the voting booths are, were the official monitors and the volunteers heating up pots of homemade chili for the teachers' lunch. Not one voter. It's as if they called an election and no one came ...

So this is what electoral Siberia looks like.

I went to vote at 5 today and it there was a bunch of activity at the polls. No lines, but all the stations were almost full. Of course, in my county in GA we had two issues on the ballot besides the republican nomination.

That's what you get when the interesting guys aren't on the ballot, I guess.
