  • I didn’t want the magic number of “60” in Washington.
    Locally, our schools had a levy to get all new buildings and it looks like it will pass.. YAY!!!! But only 90% count is in. So hopefully, it will pass. I believe heavily in the schools.
    Also, we were up for a Casino in our state and it is looking like it didn’t pass. I am not sure how I feel about this. It was a hard issue to research. I hope it didn’t pass for the right reasons and not because of commercials that were lies.

  • I was quite surprised to find 4 propositions on the ballot because I hadn't seen any advertising or circulation about them! I had to read the short little description on the ballot and base my vote off that.

  • There were no real measures up for vote, just positions. Voted Republican for president and Democrat for governor...personally think it should be that way in ALL elections but, hey, I am just a simple minded conservative lower/middle class American trying to finish raising four boys while being a SAHM looking for a job, so what do I know?

  • Yes - I voted for a Democrat for the Senate (Mark Warner), although I'm a strong right-wing conservative; and for my man, Frank Wolfe (R), for my Representative. I've had the pleasure of meeting him several times, as I truly care about politics and delve into the issues...unlike many of the voters who vote on party affiliation alone. (Yes, I may still be bitter...) There were no local issues of major importance.

    On a final note, us Republicans should try to jump on board with Obama for the good of the country. I have to believe God takes care of our country and that He put Barack into role of the President to bring prosperity, peace, and unity to the US. Please pray for President Obama and for our country (and that Michelle Obama gets a stylist...).
