I am not going to jinx the election.

However,

I wanted to ask everyone if they would be interested in utilizing the community after the election, if Obama wins.

I know a lot of us have gotten to know each other and learn from each other. If Obama wins we are going to have many great advocates for women in the White House.

Also, I am going to try and start doing new pictures of Michelle every day or so. And hopefully we can continue this after Tuesday.

Let me know what everyone thinks. Take care everyone!!

I hope they don't disappear either. I have met so many wonderful people in them.
How are things in NC?

I'm not sure about the state as a whole, though polls are are still leaning Obama. My area (the rural Northeastern portion) is looking better than I expected:

(From the local newspaper Dailyadvance.com)
"More than 27,000 voters in five counties voted early for Tuesday’s election, demolishing one-stop turnout marks from previous elections...
...Statewide, more than 2.3 million voters had cast an early ballot as of Friday — a turnout of 38 percent before Election Day...
... When early voting ended Saturday at 1 p.m., 3,446 voters had already cast ballots in Currituck, Elections Director Mary Etheridge said.
“We didn’t even have 1,000 people vote in the last presidential election,” she said.
...In Pasquotank County, where the elections office remained open four additional hours on Saturday, 13,274 voters cast ballots over the two-week early voting period. That’s more than twice the number of early votes cast before the 2004 presidential election in Pasquotank and nearly as many votes cast in that entire election, Director of Elections Linda Page said."

"...According to Democracy North Carolina, nearly 1 million more Democrats had voted than Republicans as of Wednesday night. While 35 percent of the state’s registered Democrats had cast early ballots, only 27 percent of Republicans had and only 23 percent of unaffiliated voters had."


Since we didn't even have a McCain office here and put a lot of effort into getting people to vote early I'm hopeful that a good chunk of those record early votes were for us.
Since areas with bigger cities like Greensboro and Raleigh tend to go even more Democratic, we may just pull it off *knock on wood*.

I know. Makes you feel like we've actually done something, eh?

**i live in VA and I am so excited to see it turning more blue each year...

I checked your profile after seeing this. Richmond is an awesome little city! :)
It is incredible to me that we may both go blue--I've seen the trend in local officials, governors/senators, etc in the past couple years so hopefully it will go all the way up this time!
I know I can't seem to stop visualizing my county in blue on a voting results map...If it actually happens, I will dance with joy!
