OK.. it's here. Time to pick your horse.... for the race to Washington.

Important that everyone votes in this election. Like him or not I think we can all agree that no one will have the power authority or respect that Kennedy had. MA is going to notice a difference in what we can get for our state no matter who we replace Kennedy with, but how much of a difference I think will be significantly different based on which of these people takes over the seat. Don’t waste your vote on this people.

Our your people are continuing to fight in foreign countries, and they are sent there by the people we elect to office, not just the President, but the members of Congress who can try to persuade or override a President’s decision to send troops. We owe it to these people who are laying their lives on the line to vote for whomever we believe will make the best choices about their lives. Don’t let these kids down, exercise your right to vote today. Pillsbury, thanks for putting this up on the web site and ecouraging people to vote.

I am just back from the Polls and there was no one there voting. It was like a morgue there. Hope that changes as people get out of work today and stop to vote on their way home.

Seems a waste of time to go to the polls if you ask me. Of course, no one did ask me. However, voting in an election where the winner has been named before the first vote is casted seems sort of ludicrus to me, but then, what do I know. I will vote just to maintain my right to complain, I right which I enjoy exercising, particularly on this blog. Thanks Pillsbury.

Voting is important, but in the end, none of these are good choices, so it it tough to motivate myself to get out there and do this when I don’t like any of the candidates on either side. When are we going to see someone run in MA who we can actually like and get excited about?

I know what people here mean when they say it seems like a waste of time to be voting for the lesser of the evils, but in the end, at least you have options, as lousy as they may be. Republicans are running candidates even though the know they have absolutely no chance of winning this race. But you have to keep coming to the table if you want people to take you seriously. And we have to vote in large numbers if we want the polls to realize that we are not happy with the situation and that we are going to exercise our right to express our opinions by using our votes. I know they are prediction low voter turn-out, but lets hope they are wrong about that. A hight turn-out, and a close race between a few of the candidates will let the polls know that we are watching and listening, and we are going to vote based on what we see. That is an important tool to have.

Juniper Hill School looked like the party was over. One Brown sign and one Coakley sign. The one funny moment happened as we just walked in the voting room to check in and a rather young and short law enforcement agent jumped up as soon as he saw me and just stood their by the table. Even Steph was surprised at his reaction.

I have to cut my hair....

I think we blew it with such low turn-outs all over the state. They polls take that as a sign we really are not paying attention so they figure they will just coast in the next election and get reelected. That just means more of the same in this state people. Jim, your take on the low turn out and the results? What do you think the turn out will be for the election between Coakley and Brown in January? And who do you think will get Coakley’s AG title if she wins? How will her replacement be decided, election, appointment, by who?

OB.... I guess I was idealistically hoping that Pag, Kazi and Cappy would draw out more independents.

Some say, no one will ever fill his shoes, so who bother to pick one, on the D side.

Brown was lucky in a way that Jackie ran... the media would have done even less to promote voting for the R side.

A little over 6K in Framingham voted and I'll bet most were not independents, but rather party loyalists who wanted more boobs in Washington.

It takes time to vote and even more time to figure out who may be a better candidate than the other and most average voters concede that their vote has never counted anyway.
