A reader in Pasco County, Florida, calls attention to the fantastically updated county elections site.
I didn’t have Pasco on my list of 50 key counties in the Jolt, but I perhaps should have included it; it is north of Tampa, has 464,697 people in the last census.
In 2008, McCain carried Pasco County, Florida, 51 percent to 48 percent, 109,902 votes to 102,217 votes.
As of noon, 166,371 Pasco residents have voted: 43 percent registered Republican, 35 percent registered Democrat, the remaining independent or other. Registered Republicans outpaced registered Democrats in absentee ballots, early votes, and poll votes so far today.
A nice early sign, but no reason for anyone to slack off!
