Crunch time

Election Night Blogathon.

I'm throwing the comments area open to all who want to post anything at all tonight. Report in on your voting experiences, predictions, what you heard, what you hope, or where you're partying. It's anything goes night. Have at it and play nice.

I'll post returns as soon as they're available.

to start things off, I've gotten reports that some voters have the choice of two ballots. I've never heard of this before. On one ballot, they could vote for Moline mayor only. On the other ballot, they could vote for mayor AND township officials. It was up to the voter to decide which ballot they wanted.

Any alert reader able to explain this to the Dope? I can't imagine why things were set up this way.

The Dope is informed that Pat O'Brien will be holding his election night gathering at the Friend's Circle Club on the corner of 18th Avenue & 7th Street in Moline, while Jose Moreno's election party is being held at the East Moline VFW hall, 1810 1st street, just across from Hardees.

How about Mayor is a non-partisan primary and Township is a Democratic Primary. Thus the mystery behind two ballots is solved

Ahhhhhhhhhhh. NOW I get it. So... the thinking is, if you're "non-partisan", in other words, independent and don't want to declare as a Dem, then you take the mayoral only ballot, if you're a Dem, you take the one with both.

It always seems so obvious once you know! Thanks LL

Surely, there's some sore losers and insufferable winners out there.
This is your place to vent, stomp your feet, gloat, etc.

No weapons allowed though.
