I voted on my way to work. I was surprised at how many races were not contested. I think my congress person has been terrible but it has been the same person for a generation and there was no one else to vote for. There were 9 local judgeships open and one party only had 3 candidates for the 9 seats.The voters in my area had to find a way past a bunch of threatening 'anti-Trump' demonstrators set up exactly 100' from the polling place with large signs containing a big red "X" through a sign bearing Trump's name and the name of Republican candidates. It was necessary to call the police to get past this group of Trump hating demonstrators to try to get to the polls. Not exactly my idea of free and open elections. A true disgrace to any person thinking of voting Democrat.
I hate that it is has come down to "Range and Fear". We are the United States. I am not sure what it will take to get us back on course. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Abraham Lincoln
There is evidence Trump is trying to scare people from votinghttps://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/without-evidence-trump-and-sessions-warn-of-voter-fraud-in-tuesdays-elections/2018/11/05/e9564788-e115-11e8-8f5f-a55347f48762_story.html?utm_term=.be923771b20aDon't listen! VOTE! Widespread voter fraud is a myth.If anyone hassles you voting today, call (866) OUR-VOTE for help.
I voted today--straight Democratic except for one write-in socialist. Remember, it is President Dump who wants to erase us transgender people.So if that puts me in Pat's "crazy anti-Dump crowd," then the more the merrier.I say send President Dump back to Russia.
I voted early and often. (But not more than once per election.)
