Today was my son's first chance to vote. Margaret, Carl and I voted at around 7 AM. Stephens was campaigning and Democratic Party had an info table. We were voters 22,23 and 24.

#27 at 8 am at Sewell. Curious sight: last Sunday I saw a young man with a handful of Chilton campaign signs walking along Estes. When I returned a few hours later, pratically all Chilton signs were missing. Other canidate's signs remained.

Yep get the next generation voting. I helped at the Democratic Party table from 5 to 7. Blackwood was campaigning for himself and Brown was campaigning for Bonnie Hauser. Only one voter refused info by saying she was a conservative. By 7PM 400 people had voted. (More than last fall, about the same in 2010.)

2010 #s

You sure we're comparing apples to apples?  2010 #s reported today should include all early voting, while the # on the machine today is just for primary election day.  So we'll have 600 when 2014 primary is done
