I voted Mostly Republican- and a couple of Independents and Tea Partiers, most likely. Can't wait to get Strickland out of Ohio. Jeepers Creepers.

Hey, I'm a Buckeye, too (used to be a Badger, though).

Although I like Kasich better and will vote for him tomorrow, I didn't think Strickland was much worse than the Repub that came before him.

how Strickland keeps blaming Kasich for Ohio's problems when Kasich hasn't been in office for... what- 10 years?

Agree that Taft wasn't much better than Strickland, but he was better.

I'm a transplanted Buckeye too- I used to be a Mountaineer.

I thought about voting early, but I enjoy the whole Election Day experience. Especially since people keep telling me I look just like Sarah Palin- last Presidential I dressed as much like her as possible and stood in line waving at people and freaking them out. It was a hoot.

Around here, just waving at people you don't know is enough to freak them out. I said "hello" to someone on the sidewalk last night a couple I haven't met but have seen around - their eyes just about bugged out of their heads.

Hope the results at the polls match the results here.

Why is it that my voice always seems to be loudest when I am saying the dumbest things?

You must be on the East Coast- I saw the same thing when visiting my husband's (then boyfriend) family in New Jersey for the first time. I'm smiling and making eye contact and saying "Hello" like a good Southern girl, and the native population didn't respond very well.

But then the opposite happened when Ken came home with me to WV- he commented that we must be close to my house because people were waving at us as we drove by- and we were still an hour away. So then he's wondering how I could possibly know all those people... oh the fun of blending two cultures :D.

I'm going to vote after breakfast and at least two more cups of coffee- this is not a task that one can accomplish without some protein, carbs, and copious amounts of caffeine.

I voted mostly "R." I did vote for one dem on the county board - I know him well and he has been doing a good job. I almost voted for the libertarian for comptroller b/c our other one is probably pretty corrupt. But this is illinois. Those of you in other states may think the politics is bad in your state, but I have lived in 4 states...nothing compares to it...the truth is far worse than the rumors, Smile

Of course, for WV natives, not only would most people know you, they would also likely be relatives! Biggrin

A History of the Varneys in Pike and Mingo Counties and Elsewhere by Nancy Jane Varney c) 1936, if you are a Varney, then I'm related to you- and WV is practically soaked in Varneys. I can also list amongst my ancestors http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_Anse_Hatfield ]"Devil Anse" Hatfield and several other of the Hatfield clan. No surprise, there, right?

Fun Fact: Sarah Palin and I have a common ancestor who came over on the Mayflower.

I always cast an early ballot least unforeseen circumstances keep me from voting on election day. However, I generally wait until the last week to ten days before election day to cast my vote to make sure there is no late breaking information that comes along after I have mailed my ballot which might cause me to reconsider a person or position.
