Turned out like before

There wasn’t much on the Democratic ballot in today’s primary, rather a lot more for the GOP; in fact, signs were posted to the effect of “REPUBLICANS USE BOTH SIDES OF BALLOT.” I showed up at the two-precinct polling place at 4:52 pm and cast what appeared to be ballot #408. Behind me were two Republicans: a pretty young lady and a grizzled old man. (Now that’s a coalition.) I was back in the parking lot before 4:56. Overall, nothing seemed out of the ordinary; this is normally a semi-slack period, with things getting busy after 5:30 to 6 pm. (Polls close at 7; there’s also a rush first thing in the morning for the 7 am opening.)

    Middle afternoon down here in Marshall County and I was #56. Nos. 57 and 58, two of my church members, showed up while I was talking with the poll workers — also two of my church members.

    I’m curious to see how long it is before many who painted Ms. Hofmeister as the anti-Barresi savior turn on her now that she’s the GOP nominee and therefore obviously planning to dismantle public schools in favor of putting six-year-olds in county work gangs.

    Well, seven-year-olds, anyway.

    This tweet got some smirks:

    I don’t know which is more shocking: that Han shot first, or that Barresi ran third.

    I figure the by-precinct numbers will be out by the end of the month.
