An enormous THANKS! goes out to all those who made time to vote today or during Early Voting and Absentee voting times.

Special thanks to Jackson County voters!  The numbers are not all in and, the last I heard, at least one polling place was still closing up two hours or more after voting ended.  Some people reported heavy traffic at the polls today and the state has already reported unprecedented numbers of early voters.

Thanks also to all the poll workers and to the leadership of the Board of Elections.  And, thanks to all the volunteers whose passion for democracy kept them out there registering voters, helping them to know where and when to vote, and supplying information about candidates and issues.

On to the next!
