Chicago, Nov 6
On this special day, even I amn’t naughty enough to give you a Rooooooooooney pic:
At least the Man with the Golden Ferret is an Obot.
Meant to ask LL, how is your wife doing today?
Well, the stomach distress seems to have eased yesterday, so things are looking up. She put in 6 hours at work yesterday.
Great to hear, although it’s horrible that she has to work through all of this. Hope things keep improving.
That’s what happens when your job is to be in charge of caring for the residents.
Ah, that’s tough – when I’m sure she could do with time off to fight this.
Give her our love! I know this has to be stressful for you, too. Keep the faith.
Wishing her a steady and complete recovery.
I just got called an "Obama disciple" by a crazed GOP voter at the library. #Awesome— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) November 06, 2012
I would respond—”Thank you for confirming my intelligence.”
Zingo! I love that dotster. How’s Tammy doin’?
Last poll I saw she was up 10. She should win. Some billionaire had a bunch of extra millions he didn’t need and dumped a boatload of cash on Crazy Joe so have been inundated with his ads to the very end, even today. This should be the last of him, hopefully, forever and ever, amen.
It happened late, though (although they were uber-disgusting).
I thought Tammy’s ads were more effective than the other Dem’s in NE Illinois. I think Dem’s blew it up here where I work in fighting Dold & Biggert. Seriously — no one cares if someone voted a raise for themselves — that’s so 1996. But I’m really confident that Tammy will win and win big.
Sounds good. Joe is a real creep!
This should be the last of him, hopefully, forever and ever, amen.
@Lib_Librarian An exceptional, and well-deserved honor, my friend!!! #TrustBarack He's Earned It— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) November 06, 2012
Congratulations, LL! Wonderful day!
I would have blushed and said “oh why thank you, you shouldn’t have”.
Well, he’s a former patron whom we’ve stopped helping. We call him “Eckhart Tolle Guy”. He’s elderly, very loud, and wants us to find him Tolle videos on Youtube since he knows nothing of computers. We finally told him no, as someone would have to hover over him for an hour, so now he’s pissed off.
Got my Inaugural special sweatshirt on from 2008 and my flag earrings! I voted!
Hello TODers, Just finished voting for PBO and VPBiden. It felt soo good. I also couldnt contain myself as I voted for Elizabeth Warren. It only took ten minutes the lines were minimal.
Wow, what a beautiful set of votes Asher – congratulations!!
Yeah, Chips, as its my first time it sure felt great.
Even better, what a debut Asher!
Just voted in Southern Maryland myself for President Obama. Literally went in, voted and went out. No wait at all.
Preparations @ McCormick Place, Chicago for tonight's speech by Pres Obama. Make it a GREAT night: vote.barackobama.com/en/ http://t.co/1LhrLNyO— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) November 06, 2012
How you holding up, Chips? I’m nervous……
Hi Chips. You belong in the Obama’s Hall of Fame for your yeoman’s work and sacrifice of love.
Question: how do you plan on following the returns tonight? I can’t decide as I think the election may be called an hour or so later than in 2008 and I’m on my last exposed nerve with the MSM and their inanities.
Ah, thank you Pamela!!
“Question: how do you plan on following the returns tonight?”
I’m sure I’ll be hopping all over the place, from MSNBC to Twitter to around 126 websites. Or I might just go for a long walk!
I’m too slow. Keep posting then there’s a new thread! You are working hard today Chips! One more time.
Took off work last week and yesterday to work for OFA in VA. I live in MD. I am physically exhausted. Volunteered to work until noon today. I drove elderly folks to the polls this morning. I sure hope we win VA. I have worked my hump off and donated over 10K to this campaign. We will win!!
Wow, claire 10K….amazing! That makes my about $250 not look like so much! I am really proud that I kept up donating every month. My husband and I have never given that much money to any political candidate before! I also donated monthly to elizabeth warren. iIsure hope she wins too!
The amount doesn’t matter, it’s the heart and dedication you put into supporting the Pres. Obama. It’s because of him that I had such a good year and could donate. I donated to Warren too. Love her!
Claire you’re a hero. Voted Prez, then Dem all the way down to dog catcher. Drove folks to polls since am, now gonna go handout Dem sample ballots at voting precinct until 6pm. We gotta leave everything on the road.
Good work Left-Indie!!! All Obama supporters are HEROES!! Supporting the POTUS means we love America!
My vote is all in and done!
For anyone in King County, Washington
Was helping a person who had not received their ballot (all voting in King County is by mail) and this is the information any registered voter in King County needs to know if faced with that situation..
Voter in the United States (if the person is outside the US, they have an option to cover that, as well).
Date of Birth and name
And, the various options will appear. Ballots must be postmarked today (extra postage required because of the weight of the printout ballot, btw) or numerous drop boxes exist throughout the County and ballots just need to be in the dropbox before 8p PST.
If you or anyone experiences any voting problems or voter intimidation tactics, call 866-OUR-VOTE and report it.— (@utaustinliberal) November 06, 2012
Good job guys! All this info you are sharing and all the work! Very pleased to be a part of this community!
Pres. Obama got home to Chicago at about 1AM EST and he’s up this morning looking fresh as a daisy. Where does his get this energizer bunny energy?
I think he sleeps super well and gets his proper rest, because he has a clear conscience! That’s an old line my grandmother used to say, but he reminds me of it.
I’m so happy my company is giving everyone 2 hours off paid to go and vote. I’m excited because it’s going to be my very first vote as an American and the fact that it’s going to be for PBO will make it all the more memorable in the years to come!
These stories today are wonderful, especially yours! Enjoy that vote!
I’m like you. I became a citizen in June 2006 and my first two votes have been for President Obama. Love him!
My great uncle James Earl Chaney was killed by the KKK in 1964 for helping ppl register to vote. PLEASE VOTE. instagr.am/p/RsFHhVxQbE/— Sakita Holley (@MissSuccess) November 06, 2012

I remember this well…never again! God bless you and your family Ms. Holley.
Great tweet! This brings raw memories of that violent summer. James Chaney (21 years old) was only three years old than me. Andrew Goodman who was also killed was my age. Thanks for sharing it Bob.

GUIDE TO VOTER SUPPRESSION AND POLL PROBLEMS
1) Guide to Voter Suppression and Poll Problems
There are lots of shenanigans going on in many states to suppress the vote. I don”t expect to see it here in the North East but just in case it’s good to be aware of what is going on in your area. This site will be tracking voter suppression issues throughout the country. Right now, there are serious voter suppression issues in Florida and Ohio.
2) Election Protection – You have a right to VOTE. Report any voter intimidation.
Biden to Cleveland Ohio, unannounced stop.
Chips, before day goes on I just to thank you for maintaining this site. It’s been a safe escape many times throughout these 4 years. I am looking forward to the next 4 and wish you the best.
Claire, May I join you in thanking Chips. Because we can’t thank her enough, for some of the things she’s brought to our lives that we would have missed.
Ditto. I love the fact that there are no Obama haters here. LOL.
It’s nice to have a positive website which uplifts our Commander in Chief.
Hi Guys, how is everybody doing?
Feeling Optimistic, Fired Up and Ready to Go!!
Hope all is good for you, bwd!
Great. How are you BWD? You made it – we made it – to Election Day!
Feeling very hopeful BWD, but I’m a worrier …. so feeling a bit ill too. How are you doing?
Can hardly breath, but what else is new…
Hang in there pal.
Hi BWD, As I wrote on the last thread voting is way, way, way up in my lower Manhattan polling place. Same time in 2008 I was voter # 54. Today # 293. 10 minute wait in 2008. Two hours today. Bodes well, doesn’t it?
I’m smiling at all that (and will continue smiling that you know what your voter # was back in ’08 – won’t forget makin’ history, eh? – love it!).
Great, but will be better when we start getting election results and President Obama is re-elected. Feeling very optimistic.

WHOOP WHOOP! RT: "@JohnWilson: Ed Rendell just said Black voter turnout in PA is “off the chart” and looks to be exceeding 2008 levels.”— Nancy Giles (@nancygilesnyc) November 06, 2012
do not trust anything that guy says. ever.
I agree about that shifty-eyed hasbeen/wannabe/neverwas Rendell. But I like what he said THIS TIME ONLY, if true.
He said it was up at least 20%, and that there was no way we would lose PA.
Nice to hear that, instead of him giving DimMitt advice on how to win the state.
Or, worse yet, when he’d give PBO advice during the campaign. I cannot stand losers giving our President advice!
Oh and Bill, I hope my response did not come off as dismissive of your post.
I just can’t stand Rendell – gah, the guy is just too negative and concern trolly for me.
Thanks for sharing what he said, I just don’t trust him at all.
It’s true. I live just outside, may as well be in Philly, but turnout is comparable to 2008 according to radio reports.
“… True the Vote was blocked today from operating in Ohio’s second largest county, after the outfit was found by election officials “to have submitted irregular signatures in a bid to gain access to the polls.”
What’s more, True the Vote is accused of falsifying forms requesting observer status in some precincts, and the county elections director said the group may face a felony investigation after today’s election.”
Good to hear!
I had hoped this was some urban legend:

Be ever vigilant folks – verify everything is as you want it before pressing enter when using electronic voting machines.
What is wrong with these people. They are such criminals! Just when you think you’ve seen it all! These rethugs never cease to amaze me on how corrupt they really are.
I’m happy this voter took his video and gave an explanation as too what happened.
just voted. one more in the obama column! kind of bittersweet with this being my last vote for him, but excited about moving america, and the world for that matter, FORWARD!!
Personally, I will consider my votes in 2014 for Dem candidates to be a vote for him as well, to help him get his policies through. And in fact, every election I will feel as if my vote is at least partially for him, to keep us moving in the direction he has started us.
Hello all, I am with you on that.
great point. i still think we have a chance to get the house today, since i think so much of the polling is corrupted, but even if not, i’ve been thinking about what plan president obama has to deal with a republican-house for the next two years (again, if!), and what he’s going to do to make sure we don’t have a repeat of 2010 midterms. you know he’s a got plan that will surprise the opponents. forward forever!!
very well put. thanks for keeping that point front and center.
Report any irregularities pronto:

“Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner told reporters this morning of a woman in Escambia County, Florida who would be denied her opportunity to vote. Evidently, she broke her leg in the parking lot outside her polling precinct, but was carried into the polls by her husband to vote — before going to the hospital for treatment. “We’re grateful for her interest and passion to vote,” said Detzner.
Please keep this woman in mind before you complain about having waiting in line to vote today.”

“Mitt even votes like an asshole.
November 6th, 2012 • Related • Filed Under
By Delaware Dem
NPR is reporting that voters in Belmont, Massachusetts were asked to leave the voting line so Mittens can vote without rubbing elbows with the riffraff. Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden stood in line with regular folks to cast his ballot at his polling place.”
“Mitt even votes like an asshole”
Not sure why Mitt had to resort to closing poll place, he could have just set up velvet ropes blocking himself off from “you people”.
have mercy–please tell me this is the last day on earth when this puke’s antics will be of any interest whatsoever.
Probably afraid he’d get egged or something.
Why again is Romney running to be the President? It’s obvious he cannot stand us (the people who he has to deal with every day if he wins)!

Still calling FL. Lower than usual response rate, lots of messages left. Majority I wpoke with had early voted for PBO, some had already been out this morning to vote and some planning for this afternoon. Forward!
I think it’s bc it’s the middle of the day and hopefully people are out voting or working then going to vote.
Hopefully that means the people not answering are at the polls.
Just want to say for what it’s worth. During morning worship, my Pastor asked all congregants to stand who had already voted. 90% of us stood. I voted absentee earlier last month but I received a call today as well. Message was left because I dont answer unrecognized numbers nor do I answer my door for unexpected visitors. When you have had a deceased parent scammed, you become not so trusting. So OFA voter info might not have been updated or they might not have the current info if an absentee ballot had been cast or not.
Shoving democracy down the throats of other countries, while suppressing voters here at home is the GOPs version of American Exceptionalism!— Rock (@Rokslyde) November 06, 2012
THE DIRTIEST ELECTION EVER??
Update 6, 9:17 a.m. PST, November 6: Polling troubles emerge in key states; watchdogs report “thousands” of calls
The Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights says it fielded thousands of calls Tuesday morning from voters around the country, including in Pennsylvania and Ohio: voters turned away from the polls because they lacked photo ID, voters facing polling places with inadequate staff and equipment, and voters whose polling stations opened late. Adam Serwer has more details here.
Update 5, 8:36 a.m. PST, November 6: Conservative group’s poll-watching operations—focused on black neighborhoods—blocked in Ohio
True the Vote, a conservative group that sees itself as fighting voter fraud but that voting rights groups see as engaging in voter suppression, has been denied its application to place observers at polling places in Franklin County, Ohio, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The Franklin County Board of Elections said that the requests were not properly filed. Not only that, but the Dispatch reports that county officials said that some of the names on True the Votes applications may have been falsified, and that the group could be investigated after the election.
A crucial detail about True the Vote’s intentions: Many of the requests, according to the Dispatch, were to observe polling stations in predominantly black neighborhoods. True the Vote emerged in the aftermath of the 2008 election, when many conservatives had been convinced that the now-defunct community organizing group ACORN had illegally influenced the outcome. They set a goal of fielding thousands of poll watchers in 35 states on Election Day.
Some trouble here at the polls…in Germantown area of Philadelphia….some voters have been turned away at the polls for lack of ID….will keep you posted on the outcome….
they don’t need ID. they can still vote.
yes i know…but they were not allowed to vote….will giove more details in a few
please call either of these numbers the first is the FBI 202-514-1888 or another number for voter suppression: 866-687-8683.
yes i gave that number to the poll workers…..i am not directly working on that poll but it is being addressed…

That’s good! I’m glad! I was imagining the worst. Thanks for keeping an eye out prettyfoot!
MoJo’s Brief Guide to Voter Suppression Tactics
Here’s more of our recent coverage to get you up to speed on voter suppression tactics that may affect Election 2012:
A look at 10 of the top dirty tricks used to swing elections, including deceitful robocalls and flyers, making voter registration more difficult, purging voter rolls, and deploying poll “watchers” with ulterior motives.
In the crucial battleground state of Ohio, intimidating billboards placed in minority communities have warned that voter fraud is a felony.
A federal judge partially overturned Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, but that hasn’t stopped state officials from running misleading ads suggesting otherwise.
Felon disenfranchisement laws across most of the country have made significant populations ineligible to vote on Tuesday. The most stringent such laws are in Kentucky, and in the swing states of Florida, Virginia, and Iowa.
GOP officials in Texas and Iowa have threatened to arrest international election observers who have been coming to the United States without incident since 2002.
Despite that very little voter fraud exists, paranoia about it is a bipartisan phenomenon.
Kevin Drum considers how a national ID could end the voter fraud wars.
but this is not about Voter Fraud …this is about voter suppression….limiting early voting is not about voter fraud…it is about Voter Suppression….IT IS ABOUT SILENCING THE VOICE OF CERTAIN AMERICANS….
MSNBC reporting that Florida is on pace for record turnout. 9 million-plus expected.
Wow ….. please let that be a very good thing.
I’d sure like some info on that area that is much more heavily Hispanic now than it was in 2008. I haven’t found any information.
A VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA FLIPS TO A VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY (Never the other way around, interesting……)
Life Imitates Art – Voting Machine Edition
By Steve Benen
NBC News has confirmed that a Pennsylvania voter recorded this video today, using a voting machine’s touch screen to vote for Obama/Biden, though the machine automatically interprets this as a vote for Romney/Ryan. Just like Homer Simpson, this Pennsylvania voter keeps saying he wants to support Obama, and the machine keeps saying otherwise.
The machine in question was reportedly taken out of service once the voter brought it to the attention of elections officials.
'Stop looking at cats online and go vote!' barackobama.tumblr.com/post/351398627… http://t.co/MRw934Ly— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) November 06, 2012
Just sent that to some “cat lovers” I know! (Of course, they’ve already voted … )
More emails goin’ out! Ha!
Handy link for poll watching: http://www.statelocalgov.net/50states-secretary-state.cfm The best information on elections comes straight from the source: the Secretary of State of each state. Before depending on the media to tell what is what…go to the same place they go to get info.
My sister (white, 60-ish) stood outside of her polling place for a couple of hours today (city outside of Charlotte, NC) to hand out info cards from the DNC. Before she got there, she said a very, very petite 30-ish AA woman had been handing out the cards, the only one there early a.m. who was representing the Democratic party headquarters. Before my sister got there, the woman was being harassed by three “big, burly Republicans” who were saying awful things in her direction, so the other woman called the Dem Hqs and they sent a gentleman staffer to stand with her, and the bullying stopped. I was afraid for my sister before she signed up for a shift, because she does not suffer fools gladly! Good for these two women to stand their ground in front of the “gun toting, Bible clutching” idiots who think like Romney and the others in the name of “Freedom.”
I had emailed the FBI phone number to my sister, which she showed to the two others in case needed, but – luckily – the problem dissolved, at least when they were there. This kind of crap is gonna happen in pockets all over the country, all day.
Good for your sister! Those jerks were nothing but bullies — typical Rethugs.
I’m currently making calls to Florida, PA and NC. Mixing it up and moving from one list to the other. I’ve canvassed this election season in Philadelphia and in Charlotte, NC and both times I met people that were really fired up and ready to vote for the president. And then I met people that are “sporadic” voters in the extreme. They wanted to vote for the president but one of them didn’t know what day was the last day to vote aka election day! No jokes. Another voter didn’t realize she actually had to vote – she thought filling out her voter registration was all she needed to do to show her preference for the president. Today, I was going to do election protection in Philly but my mum just got discharged from the hospital today. She voted absentee and is resting well. I don’t want to leave her alone so I’m working the phones today from home. Spoke to one voter in PA this morning who confirmed she voted at 7am. We talked and she decided she couldn’t just seat at home and be nervous. So she’s headed out to the local OFA office and is now canvassing her neighborhood. She has me fired up and ready to make some more calls! It’s really simple and most people are really nice so jump in and see how it goes http://my.barackobama.com/Election-Day-Calls
I am sitting here on this beautiful day all hydrocodoned up and kicking myself for not being able to phonebank as I had previously signed up to do. Why? I cracked my tooth all the way to the root last night, inadvertently biting hard on a stone in my rice dish, and therefore had to go straight to the dentist after voting this morning. My face feels like an embalmed corpse.
Just praying the anesthesia wears off and the pain subsides before the election results start coming in this evening. It took several shots to completely numb me, so it’s gonna take a while to wear off. Ugghh
Meanwhile it’s my son’s 25th birthday today and we had all planned to feast at home while watching election results. But the dentists says I should only drink liquids today. Is he kidding?
Ok I feel a little better venting to you guys about my partially horrible day. Only Pres Obama’s electric victory smile will wash it all away. But I have to wait 8.5. more hours from now to see him. But it’s well worth the wait and the pain. I’ll never forget this day.
Well, you’d better start planning which liquids..wine, perhaps?
The evil dentist’s instructions say no alcohol. It’s a conspiracy, I tell you.
BABE!!!! I am so sorry!!!!! Champagne is a liquid.
“I cracked my tooth all the way to the root last night”
Zizi!!!! No!!! I felt weak even reading that You poor thing.
Thanks for your sympathy
Oh, zizi!!!! That is so unfortunate. Happy Birthday to your son (he shares his BD with my wife’s )
Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Will the medication at least let you sleep so that you can ‘kill’ some time that way?

Very high turnout in Toledo and Cleveland. Florida could experience record turnout.
Hey family…Just off the phone with my daughter who is in college in California (we’re in Michigan). LOTS ‘O tears. Her first time voting. She had to fill out a provisional ballot because her name wasn’t on the list. This is after months of checking and double checking with the LA registration office. Of course I assured her that she’s fine and there was probably a glitch in the system because all of the back and forth happened within the last 3 months versus 6 months or a year ago. Any other words of comfort i can pass on to baby girl?
Same thing happened to my son going to college in San Francisco. He voted just fine in 2008!

Just returned from voting for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic ticket in my very red precinct. It felt SO good!!! My husband and I stood in line about an hour, a small amount of time compared to many other places. Saw one other certain Obama vote in the line. Imagine there were more than our three, I hope so at least.
Every time I vote I think about my grandmothers who couldn’t vote until 1920. In 1914 my one grandmother put up a sign for Woodrow Wilson in her window, doing her bit because she couldn’t vote. My other grandmother, the Vermont one, was a suffragette. I would never betray those women by not voting!
Good Afternoon TOD family. Voted this morning. Justing getting home from doctor appt., and some errands for special foods. Great beautiful day out here on westcoast. I will tell you a little story on the next thread.HZ
