Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Finally .. after all the time .. I finally got to cast a vote for the next Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts - Elizabeth Warren.

I've been saying, since she entered the race, that I could not wait to vote for Elizabeth Warren.  I've commented to that effect in numerous diaries, many times.  I've given many times, as funding permitted.

And, today, yay!  I finally got to vote for her.  

I had a nice chat with the campaigner standing outside ... Brown supporters were nowhere to be seen.  She said it had been busy and had a lot of people stopping by to say hello and hope for the best.

Inside, as I was checking in at my precinct (at 9am), I noted it was a "hopping place" and was told that, yes, it had been busy and non-stop since 7am ... and indeed there had been people outside at 6:30 am waiting to get in and vote.

Looks like a big turnout here in Massachusetts, even in sleepy suburbs west of Boston.

Get out and vote!


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Extended (Optional)
