I had the TV during lunch, and CNN I think (some news channel) was cutting to Joe the Plumber, and I promptly changed the station :happy:

Sadly, I don't think celebratory booze is in the cards for me tonight. I've felt like crap all day. :(

Aw, it'll be okay. :)


Martha, are you concerned that if it's called too early, people won't go out to vote on prop 8?

Va. polls close in 20 minutes. If Obama takes Va., he wins it IMO :up:.

Anybody else have trouble getting in to Interference today? I finally had to do a Google search for the site. The first listing didn't work--same internal error message--but the second one got me in. The same thing happened at my home and work computer.

I was worried I was going to miss the election on FYM!

corianderstem 11-04-2008 06:41 PM

There are a few posts elsewhere on the forum asking the same thing, sean. It's not just you.

I think it's absurd that results are trickling in while polls are still open. It's beyond ridiculous. In Canada, a law was passed a few years ago that forbade networks from announcing results until the last poll on the West Coast closed.

VintagePunk 11-04-2008 06:41 PM

All last night I kept thinking to myself "if I leave now, I can be in Chicago by midday tomorrow..."

Alas, I'm not that wild and crazy.


Love your sig, Cori!

Not sure how it works in Canada - in the US it is 50 separate contests.

corianderstem 11-04-2008 06:43 PM

I think so, too. Or at least most of the polls. If they waited until all 50 states closed the polls, I think Alaska is the last, that would make it 1:00 am on the east coast.

I would hope most people on the west coast who haven't voted by this point a) already firmly know who they're voting for; and/or b) have enough common sense to know that the numbers reported so far are less than 1% of the votes and shouldn't dissuade them from voting because their guy is winning or losing already.

Exactly. We've got another anti-choice prop to vote down as well. Yes, the same damn one which was voted down a few years ago. :|

Yeah I find this strange as well. In Ireland election results are not released until the following day.

It's still not even early evening West Coast, as Cori said.
