November 3, 2010

Yesterday was election day, and today not that much has been shaken up in Nevada's political structure. We still have Harry Reid as one of our US Senators, and a bunch of Republicans to fill all those other offices, including the other senatorial spot.

The calls and paper mailings were incessant. The door-to-door canvassing not as much, although we got two different groups coming for Reid, and a couple for the local candidates. I did some voter registration Harry Reid campaigning out in front of the DMV back in March, and I did a shift at the Democratic HQ, but that was the extent of it.

Yesterday was kind of a charged day, however. The kids were out of school, the husband was home from work, and the weather was mild and beautiful. I went to vote at the school, then stayed to canvass on behalf of the school. In fact, I spent a lot of time passing out fliers, trying to encourage people to create a bing account, or to log on to bing through facebook, to vote for our school's video. But it is a losing battle at this point, unless many many more people log onto vote.
