As I picked them

Without going into too much detail over what is, after all, a secret ballot, I will reveal the following facts:

  • I voted down all five state questions.
  • In general, if there was a woman running for a seat, I voted for her over whichever guys made it to the ballot, mostly because I’ve seen most of these guys before.
  • I could work up no enthusiasm for either of the two major-party men running for Governor, opting instead for the Libertarian.

This is the Libertarian in question:

And I should mention here that while I have no particular quarrel with incumbent Congressman Steve Russell, I vowed on the day of the primary that I would vote for Democratic challenger Kendra Horn, who did a great service to the state by sparing us the indignity of yet another uninspiring, and inevitably losing, campaign by Tom Guild, the state’s closest equivalent to Harold Stassen.

    No state question proposing naming the streetcars tootling around Cornett’s Folly?

    these days my MO is generally “vote against the incumbent” though there were fewer of those on the ballot than in some years.

    It will take at least a month for townsfolk to turn on the streetcars. (It’s Week Four when they start collecting fares.)

    I voted straight party, except one, who was on the top of the ticket

    My first choice for a streetcar name? Desire. You know you want it.
    And I am shocked, SHOCKED I tell You! That there is not a Crimson & Cream streetcar. My second choice? Cuervo’s Crabcake. Inside joke, ask the Ride on KOKC.
