Hope all enjoy their rainy election day (they say the rain is good for incumbents).
These are all pointless prognostication:

Zeigler 56%

Mayor Dave 58%

Sandborn 56%
Thiel 53%
Rummel 73%
Woods 63%
Skidmore 60%
Solomon 70%
Gruber 51%
SRC 58%
Kerr 76%
Palm 51.5%
Clausius 60%
Schumacher 54%
Clear 57%
Poulson 53%

And of course, Konkel, Cnare, Verveer, Brandon, Bruer and Compton at about 98-99%. I would love to be able to read the write-ins on these races.

What about School Board?

Postby psycho » Tue Apr 03, 2007 1:27 pm

Any thoughts on school board races? Beyond Johnny Winston walking off with his race, I don't feel like I have any sense of what's going on in the other contests. Will MTI money and support carry the day, or will it be the independents?

I'll be elected to the Supreme Court, thanks to all the absentee write-ins Mike Quieto delivered.

The county clerk once told me that one of the most popular write in candidates on campus is "Mary Vagina" for some inexplicable reason. They have to go through and count every single write in, AND look up names in the phone book, voter lists, etc..and try and attribute votes to a real person. During the AG primary, someone voted for FALKENSCHLAGER. It caused some consternation at the clerks office over who to attribute that one to.

Sounds like a blast to manage, and made me re-think my propensity to write in candidates in unopposed races.

After working as a Poll Worker for the November election I will NEVER write in someone as a joke. It's way to much work for the workers that night. They have to pull out the ballots that have write-ins and record those all by hand.

The worst was the ballot I saw where the person voted for people on the ballot and in the right spot, they just wrote them in instead. So instead of filling the line in for Falk, they filled the line in for Write-in and wrote in Falk. They did this for every single selection. Argh.

I am a bit surprised to see King go out on a loss in his home district. . . . but maybe that is just more distortion.
