Primary Day Slide Show

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 6, 2008

I visited a few precincts in Jackson County today, and had a good time visiting with people, speaking with the poll workers, and was impressed with the enthusiasm of the Ron Paul sign wavers at the Cullowhee voting precinct. I spoke with Obama sign wavers, and even a couple of Hillary Supporters. No one was actively campaigning for McCain that I saw in my very unscientific visual poll.

Poll workers reported turnout was either even with past Presidential Primaries, or ahead…sometimes as much as 50% greater (or in the ball park), with most of the increase coming from early voting.

Here is a brief slide show of some of the images I took, and I may have video collection of people I gave a chance to campaign on video for their candidate sometime tomorrow:

    O/T, but I thought you’d like to know:

    “A Tuscaloosa judge has acquitted four people charged by campus police with disorderly conduct for a Feb. 29 anti-war demonstration at the University of Alabama.

    In a statement, attorney Allison Neal of the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama said District Court Judge Joel Chandler acquitted the four on Friday.

    The two-minute demonstration was arranged by the Tuscaloosa chapter of Students for a Democratic Society and was meant to advertise a planned talk by Jason Hurd of the Asheville, N.C. chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War.”

    I saw that on my RSS Feeds…too bad.

    Well, here’s hoping he tries his guerrilla theater near someone with a Concealed Carry Permit.
