Ohio Polls

I returned home from working at the polls 30 minutes ago in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.  Because of early voting and absentee ballots turnout was fairly light.  I see that they have just called Ohio for Barack Obama.

We did not have any problems today.  Because of the light turnout things ran smoothly and s-l-o-w-l-y.  I really needed a nap, but now I will drink my glass of wine and watch the rest of the returns.

I hope you all participated in this momentous election!

  1. Hi Stacy,
    I watched the election from France. I had to wake up several times during the nights to watch the results. I wish I was there to celebrate with you. It is such an historical and emotional moment for the Unitd States. I am so proud of the choice of the american people. Congrats!!

  2. I thought about you while I was waiting in line for over 2 hours yesterday. Our voting place was very disorganized – 2 people checking people in for a dozen machines. A lot of machines would stand unused because no one was checked in. I was standing in the middle of a bunch of readers, though, so we had a good time talking about books! It made the time pass much faster.

  3. Wow! What an exciting election. We stayed up for a while, then we woke up and watched some more. Glad your day was good (slow!). Now the real work begins for Obama.
