Just Back From Voting

Although the wife, the baby, and I are all suffering from some sort of flu (the flu? A whole month before the rainy season? It just ain’t right) we toddled along to our polling place, a Lutheran church on the edge of the Stanford campus, to cast our votes. Even in the middle of the morning, there was a line, which jibes with the emails I’m getting from friends around the state (and with Steve Hayward’s posting below): turnout today is heavy.

What can this mean? Here in Palo Alto, it probably means that the anti-recall folks are all worked up–on the way to the polling place we saw a couple of dozen “No Recall” signs. In Orange County and the Central Valley it probably means the pro-recall folks are all worked up. A lovely day for democracy, one way or t’other.
