  •  I live and voted in Wake County (6+ / 0-)

    I live in downtown Cary and I was the ONLY person, when I walked into my voting location at 9am. I voted, then left and there was still nobody in sight in the Town of Cary location at around 9:10.

    I thought there weren't many people voting. But I was happy to hear today that the numbers were higher than in previous years.
    I had to wash my hands after voting for Bill Fletcher (R). His opponent was Caggia, who is also a Republican. I just don't trust any Republican anymore. We have plenty of them on the Town of Cary board.

    •  Wake Forest (7+ / 0-)

      I voted in Wake Forest.  Heritage Middle School.  I was the only one at 7:30 AM.  I asked the lady if I needed ID, a blood sample or DNA.  She said no, not until 2016 and that voter ID was good.  I said that I will not need an ID for 2016 because the DOJ will strike down the law.  An African American, woman and man, sitting at an adjacent table had big smiles on their faces.

    •  You're in my district (0+ / 0-)

      I think Cagglia and Fletcher are both non-insane Republicans.  I voted Fletcher because he was on the board for 12 years previously and moved from very conservative to almost progressive by the end.  

      The polls were relatively empty when I voted.  20 percent isn't much, but still much higher than in the past.  It's really impressive considering there were only 3 items on the ballot, and nothing 'exciting' to the casual voter.

      I was happy to see the bond pass, considering how rabidly the local tea partiers opposed it.
