I'm sending this on my break, so I've got to be short.  Contrary to what was expected, voter turnout is good.  I can only see who is showing up and the turnout for republicans is good.  They are showing up with their pre-printed "Arnold" checklists, so all dems who want to see these issues defeated, get off your keyboards and get to the polls!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I'll be going to the polling station (none)
    in about half an hour and will of course be nixing the first six.

    Another Arnold checklist arrived in the mail yesterday, but so did two Democratic mailpieces.

    Fingers crossed Arnold gets a good boot up the backside from Californians today.

  •  I didn't get an Arnie checklist at all (none)
    Should I take that personally?

    My wife got a letter from "McCain" though. We thought that was pretty funny.

  •  We got everyone's checklists (none)
    We got Arnie's, we got fake Democratic Party, we got real Democratic party, we got paid mailers galore.

    And I voted NO on 73-79, YES on 79 and 80, checked my work on the #$(@)*)(!@# touchscreen and summary.

    In my local election, there were 2 candidates for the same office who were both so loathsome I couldn't bring myself to vote for either of them.  One had a long history of dirty tricks and baggage, the other was a Republican trying to hide the fact when he walked precincts.

    Chaos, fear, dread. My work here is done.

  •  I had to vote provisionally... again... (none)
    I got a book in the mail with my polling place listed and my name on it... I most definitely registered here in my neighborhood. So why is it, I can never vote for real?

    Why didn't they have my name on the list when I got there... just like last time?

    What did the woman at the polling place say?

    "They're screwing with our lists again... cause of the neighborhood we're in."

    (all black neighborhood).

    This has got to stop.

    Dems need to completely rework our voting system when/if they ever get back in office.

    It's needs to be the same... nationwide.

    And it actually needs to function.

    I called the voting hotline... and they said as long as I didn't vote twice and I'm registered to vote in L.A. county... which I am... then my vote will count... 100%, regardless of the count.

    Here's hoping that's true. God only knows of course... God and the California Secretary of State I suppose.

    •  Damnit! (none)
      I want a way to know if my f'ing vote counted!

      Is that too much to f'ing ask!

      God damnit!

      F'ing Racist... f'ing goddamnit!

      It's no wonder people don't vote in this goddam waste of a country!

      Breathe... breathe... 1, 2, 3, 4,...
