The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The time has come

One hour to go before the polls close, and the state's estimate of one million voters strikes me as just a hair on the low side. At my precinct, there was a steady stream at 5 pm, but with a dozen "booths" available, things moved quickly enough; I was in and out in less than three and a half minutes. Then again, I knew (in fact, most of you knew) exactly which boxes I was going to mark.

Projections of winners, you ask? Too early yet.

I don't know about OK, but my polling place in Fayetteville was packed.

It was reported that there was some sort of screwup in Little Rock, requiring the polls to remain open for an extra hour and a half. I don't quite know what to make of that.
