from Mrs Bart
We wanted to avoid the long voting lines on Tuesday
so I asked Bart to go with me to vote at the
Election Board on Saturday. We got there about
11:00 and it looked like there was a party going on.
Across the street from the building - on all sides
- lots of people were carrying Obama signs,
waving and honking their horns. There were
a few McCain signs.
When we looked closer, we saw the people standing
in line to vote. The line went from the building
down the street half a block, then turned and
went back up the side street for a block or more and
was growing. The line did not appear to be moving
at all. The crowd was mostly minorities, young
people and older folks - some in wheelchairs
- but not many in the 30-60 range.
I think voter turnout will be very high so you
should probably plan accordingly.
You might want to build in some extra time if
you wait until Tuesday to vote,
or vote today if you can because it could take
Be sure to vote . . . and vote for Obama!
Reminder: This is baskwards Oklahoma, where
McCain is ahead by 37 points.
the GOP will sabotage the voting machines in the poor and Black areas of
causing delays that they hope you'll find too long to wait around to
Meanwhile, the rich white folks will have new machines that work great
so they can vote in 5 minutes or less.
DON'T LET THEM STEAL YOUR VOTE!
Vote today if you can because the I'm-so-sick-of-Bush lines will be
...and bring your camera to record any GOP dirty tricks.
