I’ve done my civic duty and voted. I got up early and made it to the voting center at 10 till 6 in the morning. I didn’t expect to be greeted with a line of about 25-30 people waiting before me. Across the street, another voting site had a line of 100+ before opening. It took about 30 minutes for me to vote and when I was leaving, the line at the other location was still standing strong with at least 75+ people waiting. Looks to be a record turnout around here as is being speculated to be true across our nation. It’s good to see so many people utilizing their right to vote after so many years of voter apathy. Are you excited or nervous? We’ll have the answer to our questions later this evening assuming we don’t have another Supreme Court intervention.

    😯 I am unbelievably nervous! I’m afraid there will be too many people voting economically and emotionally instead of what is right. It’s going to be a very long day!!!

    Well, with a few votes still outstanding, Obama ran away with the Presidential election. The current vote count is at around 119 million so it’s actually comparable to 2004’s total of 121 million. Everyone believes Obama has somehow ran away with America’s hearts and minds but in 2004, George W. Bush, not widely liked even then, achieved 62+ million votes for President. Obama currently stands at a little under 63 million.

    Not quite an official “mandate” for the Democratic Party as has been mentioned today… Yes, he dominated the Electoral College, but he did not dominate the voting public. I want to see a county by county map and see just how much Obama’s voting landscape changed from Bush’s voting landscape in 2004. I will place bets and say that the massive city areas threw the battleground states to Obama by recruiting more voters than ever before in those areas by promising the poor and minority social segments “change.”
