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.

  •  Thanks, poopdog. The de Blasio campaign really (3+ / 0-)

    is totally on top of their game. Many candidates with that kind of lead in the polls would relax, but the BdB team has called twice and sent three emails today. They are getting out the vote in a big, wonderful way.

    I hope that he wins by a margin similar to the polling so that he has a super mandate. NYers are lazy about voting, though, they really are, so anything could happen.

  •  Not NYC, but voting-related (2+ / 0-)

    I recently moved 15 miles or so from an urban-like suburb of Philadelphia to an actual suburb in Chester County, about 100 yards from the Delaware County line.  

    (This will have some meaning for southeastern PA residents).

    I just went over to vote here for the first time.  In my old town, they would move the place every year, and each time it was a dank hole-in-the-wall location with plywood on the floors and that kind of thing.

    Here?  Huge church gymnasium.

    I was greeted by 50-something GOP woman touting her candidates but I politely said, sorry; I'm a party-line Democrat.  She was of good cheer; I said, I'm new here and it's quite a difference from my old town where 'they hid the polling places from us.'

    "You know how your party can be," I added, smilingly.  She took it well.  I got the impression she was more social than political.

    In any event, the place was staffed with people even older than me, and there aren't that many, if you know what I mean.  And they used paper ballots, something I've never encountered.  Even in the old place, we had up-to-date machines.

    My thought on that was, there must be hundreds of different ballot styles depending on where you live.  A pretty crappy system.

    They also asked me for ID.  I mildly bitched but produced it.  They said 'we can ask because you just moved here.'

    Threw another vote on the DeBlasio pile. One for Tish James, too, and the rest of the straight ticket.

    Adding my vote for what hopefully is a total train wreck election for Lhota.
