participatory history

Got up at 5 am to vote, showered, dressed, and walked the half mile to the polls through a gorgeous, misty November morning that I shared with the garbage trucks:

Some more somewhat blurry shots behind the cut. I was hand-holding in low light conditions.



The line at the polls was diverse and jovial, though not as friendly as the primary turnout. I waited about 25 minutes to cast my vote. Connecticut's Secretary of the State is predicting 90% voter turnout.

I love New England.

I got blurrily CNN-polled.

Democratic sign-holders a regulation hundred yards from the polls. There were no Republicans. I jokingly asked the Dems if the Republican's truck broke down, and one of them grinned and said, "I think they've packed it in for the day."

The radio is predicting a crushing defeat for CT Representative Christopher Shays, who--they say--is the last Republican member of the House from New England.

Yankees. I tell you what. You goof up, we'll let you know.
