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.
