Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Turnout Situation

From what I am hearing, SWVa and the Valley are having a pretty good turnout. NOVA and Hampton Roads are supposedly low. Richmond is up in the air (but this will be higher anyway just b/c its a state election). I can't really defend these numbers, but my sources are pretty good.
If thats is the setup, we might do better than we think tonight.
We still have half the day to go though.
Lets Win This Thing!

UPDATE: It sounds like the dems have relatively no presence anywhere. People are saying they are voting and there are no dem poll watchers or even dem signs at the polls.
Has anyone else experienced this? I will admit that is not the case here in Montgomery County.

    Ds are a late vote, generally. Urban and suburban vote late.

    Well, in NOVA most people vote in the morning b/c they might miss it on the way home from work.
    So usually low NOVA turnout in the morning means low for the day.
    That doesn't mean it will go that way today though.

    There were strictly Dems out front of my polling place. Of course I live in Richmond City. I didn't even see a Republican sign anywhere.

    I was there at 8.30AM.

    Re: The results in the 26th. To quote the late, great, Chris Farley....That was awesome.

    And apologies to GOPHokie who pretty much properly called the win margin while us site visitors said it would not be the nearly 4% that it turned out.
