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.

    •  Problem with these numbers (0+ / 0-)

      Early voting is up everywhere, because early voting is catching on as a habit in Tennessee.  Shelby numbes were big, but they produced 16.4% of early votes with 16.2% of the state's registered voters.  That's good new, but not overwhelming.  It is also good news that Davidson county produced 10.1% of early voters with just 8.0% of the state's registered voters, and that Hamilton county only produced 4.4 % of early votes with 5.4% of registered voters.  the only big county downers were Knox (8.1% of early votes with 7.3% of reg. voters) and Williamson (3.2% of early votes with 2.9% of reg. voters).  Good news on the whole.

      So I see only tatters of clearness through a pervading obscurity - Annie Dillard -6.88, -5.33

      •  Keep in mind that in Knox County (0+ / 0-)

        there are pockets of Democrat voters.  In fact Kerry actually carried the city of Knoxville (not Knox County), and Bredesen actually carried Knox County by a very narrow margin in 2002.  So depending on how Ford does in Knox County, the high voter turnour may not be so bad for Ford.

  •  There's an interesting paragraph in NashvillePost (3+ / 0-)

    The story is a weekend Senate race wrapup, and there's more, but here's the bit that gave me a boost:

    According to statistics published by the Tennessee Division of Elections, a new state record was set, with 49 percent more people voting in the midterms than did in 2002.

    In what should be sobering news to the Corker campaign -- and to media outlets that have published polls giving Corker anywhere from an 8- to 10-point lead -- Shelby County's early vote was up by 80 percent. That is Memphis, folks. It's Ford's home county, the county Democrats rely upon.

    The story's got much more, so have a link to NashvillePost
