Missouri:

I voted Democrat in the Senate race

Libertarian in all others

no to all of the judges

yes to the special school district tax

no to the smoking tax

yes to raising minimum wage that will increase to match inflation every year

and the biggest YES to Amendment 2, I salute you Mike J Fox.

As per Race's voting thread -

Other than voting straight libertarian ticket, I also voted No on the Gay Marriage ban proposal, No on full-funding by the city for trash pickup, No on the death penalty with DNA evidence, and No on a city tax-levy increase.

And I still feel good :heart:

The biggest race here was for U.S. Representative: Incumbent GOP Charles Taylor vs. Heath Shuler (yes, that Heath Shuler). Everything else was state court judges and county offices. I voted for Shuler almost solely on the principle that Taylor ran ads about Shuler missing property tax payments when Taylor did the same thing in his home county, where I live.

Reviewing all of the ballot measure we have here, I have decided that they are almost all complete BS. People here seem to be willing to amend the state constitution like it is a grocery list. There are like twelve of these things and almost all of them benefit some narrow special interest. This is really no way to write a constitution, and no way to run a state if you ask me. Here is my idea of how one of these things comes about.

Farmer A: Boy, I love no havin' to pay state income taxes here in Nevada.
Farmer B: Yeah, that's OK, I guess. :dunno: But I sure as hell don't appreciate payin' personal property taxes on my tractors and such.
Farmer A: Golly, that is a shame, I wish we had some way of fixin' that.
Farmer B: Well hey maybe we do, lets start a petition to have the constitution amended to make our equipment exempt from tax.
FarmerA: Say, that is a good idea, but how would we ever get all of them ignorant city folk to support something like that?
Farmer B: That is a tough one. How about this, let's also give them a sales tax rebate when they trade in their fancy cars for new ones in the same amendment.
Farmer A: Say, that's not a bad idea. But those two taxes have nothing to do with each other. They aren't even collected by the same agengy.
Farmer B: So?

And here we go:


Technical glitches reported in early voting (http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/11/07/election.roundup.ap/index.html)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Voters put the Republican congressional majority and a multitude of new voting equipment to the test Tuesday in an election that defined the balance of power for the rest of George W. Bush's presidency.

Both parties hustled to get their supporters out in high-stakes contests across the country, Democrats appealing one more time for change, and appearing confident the mood was on their side.

Republicans conceded nothing as their vaunted get-out-the-vote machine swung into motion.

About a third of voters were using new equipment, and problems in several states were reported right out of the gate. The government deployed a record number of poll watchers to the many competitive races across the country. (Watch why the monitors are being dispatched -- 1:59 )

Glitches delayed balloting in dozens of Indiana and Ohio precincts, and Illinois officials were swamped with calls from voters complaining that poll workers did not know how to operate new electronic equipment.

In Delaware County, Indiana, officials planned to seek a court order to extend voting after an apparent computer error prevented voters from casting ballots in 75 precincts.

Florida officials, working to avoid a repeat of the vote-counting debacle of 2000, fielded extra voting machines, paper ballots and poll workers.

In the Jacksonville suburb of Orange Park, Florida, voters were forced to use paper ballots after an electronic machine broke.

Voting at sunrise, Bush switched from partisan campaigner to democracy's cheerleader as he implored Americans of all political leanings to cast ballots.

"We live in a free society and our government is only as good as the willingness of our people to participate," Bush said, his wife, Laura, at his side and an "I voted" sticker on the lapel of his brown suede jacket.

"Therefore, no matter what your party affiliation or if you don't have a party affiliation, do your duty, cast your ballot and let your voice be heard."

Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York seconded her party's call for change, with one qualification.

"I voted for change, except for me," she said, casting her ballot with her husband, Bill, the former president, in Chappaqua, New York.

In Tennessee, where Republican Bob Corker and Democrat Harold Ford Jr. were in a pitched battle for a Senate seat, even a spotty rain made Corker edgy.

"Any candidate doesn't like to see rain," Corker said, greeting supporters on a damp Tuesday morning in Kingsport. "You don't know what kind of variables that brings into it."

At stake in the midterm election were all 435 House seats, 33 in the Senate, 36 races for governor, ballot measures on gay marriage, embryonic stem cell research, the minimum wage and more -- plus the overarching fate of President Bush's agenda in the last two years of his presidency.

Democrats hoped finally to answer the rout that drove them from legislative power in 1994. Even their opponents conceded Democrats were certain to make gains and, despite brave words for public consumption, Republicans worried that control of the House would slip from their hands.

Even Senate control was up in the air, but a tougher climb for Democrats. (Watch what to expect if the Democrats win control -- 2:02 )

Unsurprisingly, the chairmen of the Democratic and Republican parties talked optimistically as voters went to the polls Tuesday.

"I believe we're going to defy the experts and maintain our majority in the House and the Senate," GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman said on CBS's "The Early Show."

Countered Howard Dean, his Democratic opposite number: "If you want change, we can give you change."

That's just what 60-year-old Ron Bowman, a Democrat from Windsor, Connecticut, had on his mind when he went out to vote first thing Tuesday.

"It was a chance for a change," he said, after casting his ballot for Democratic senatorial candidate Ned Lamont over incumbent Sen. Joe Lieberman, running as an independent.

Another voter who echoed Bowman's sentiment, Shirley Swanson of Windsor, said that she, too, voted for Lamont. "He's not Lieberman. Joe isn't listening to us," she said.

In Texas, Bush finished a restrained five-day round of campaigning mostly in GOP strongholds around the country. His presence on the stump was a mixed blessing for candidates attracted to the attention and fundraising prowess generated by a president but nervous about being associated too closely -- or even seen with -- an unpopular leader.

Charlie Crist, a Republican running to succeed Bush's brother Jeb as Florida governor, bailed from a planned appearance with Bush in a safely Republican section of the Panhandle, an embarrassing snub on the eve of voting. (Full story)

Bush gamely pressed on with lacerating attacks on Democrats at that Pensacola rally of 7,000 loud supporters. "The Democrat philosophy is this: If it breathes, tax it, and if it stops breathing, find its children and tax them," Bush shouted.

Former President Clinton responded sharply in kind: "They can't run anything right," he said, taunting Republicans about Iraq, Hurricane Katrina recovery and scandal in Washington.

Democrats needed to gain 15 House seats or six in the Senate to form a majority, a development that would give them a stronger voice against a war that has cost more than 2,800 U.S. lives and has come to be seen by most Americans as misbegotten.

Sharply critical of Bush's prosecution of the war throughout the campaign, Democrats nevertheless lack a common position on how to get the U.S. out.

Republicans have been the acknowledged champions at getting supporters out to polling stations, a critical skill in midterm elections when turnout is typically low, around 40 percent, and one that heightened suspense over which party would hold the levers of power at the end of the counting.

Evangelical conservatives are the foundation of that mobilization and motivation drive, but their own enthusiasm was in question as they faced the prospect of a president too politically weak to take forward their agenda and looked back on a campaign tainted by the congressional page sex scandal and more. (Watch how some evangelicals are not enthusiastic -- 2:23 )

Even so, some final opinion polls indicated a tightening race; others suggested the Democrats were still far in front in national sentiment.

At least two dozen Republican House seats were at risk. Among GOP-held open seats, those in Arizona, Colorado, New York, Ohio and Iowa seemed most vulnerable. Republican Reps. John Hostettler, Chris Chocola and Mike Sodrel of Indiana; Charles Taylor of North Carolina; Curt Weldon, Don Sherwood and Melissa Hart of Pennsylvania; and Charles Bass of New Hampshire were in particularly difficult re-election struggles.

In Senate races, Republican incumbents Mike DeWine in Ohio and Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania appeared in deepest trouble; Sens. Lincoln Chafee in Rhode Island and Conrad Burns in Montana somewhat less so.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, in line to become the first woman House speaker in history if Democrats win, was in Washington after a weekend of campaigning for candidates in Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

We only use paper ballots in this county, as far as I know.

Voted Dem for pretty much all offices that Dems were running in. The Senate race blows ass, as I hate all three candidates. It became a choice of who scared me the least.

Voted Yes on only a small number of Props. We had two smoking Props on the ballot, one that outright bans it in all establishments (restaurants AND bars), and one that bans it in restaurants but allows it in bars if the bar is separate from the restaurant. I voted for the second one, but only because it would repeal the laws in Tempe and several other towns that have outright banned smoking indoors. I firmly believe that there's no other way that those laws will be overturned, and smoking should at least be allowed in bars (I mean, the clientele is already killing itself with alcohol, why exclude smokers?). I'd rather not be legislating choices that people make, but in the end I was willing to compromise.

The other props were insane. There was the marriage protection one, one that would tax smokers in order to fund child healthcare, and one that denies bail to illegal immigrants, thus putting them on the same level as murderers and rapists (which is just ridiculous). Needless to say I voted no on all of those.

I also voted no on raising minimum wage, because raising it an entire dollar is way too much way too fast. I want to raise the minimum wage, but I think it needs to be done slowly in increments over time.

I left all judges blank, as well as the school board races, since I know nothing about those people.

Democrat for most state offices (Angelides over the Governator), except Green for Insurance Commissioner, because Bustamante is as crooked as hell (also Green for Oakland City Council).

Dems for House and Senate (DiFi and Barbara Lee).

Yes on a bunch of infrastructure bonds, flood control, new taxes on cigs and oil, public campaign financing.

No on teen parent-notification for abortions, forever tracking all sex offenders, and a far-too-sweeping protection of private property.

Ooh, and ranked voting in Oakland. Good news for all you third party fans.

I think Bush and Cheney have committed crimes warranting impeachment, but I think impeaching them would be politically foolish for the Democrats. They shouldn't be seen as the party who seized power via impeachment. They need to concentrate on winning the Presidency via election in '08. Which means they need to tell Hillary to shut up and stay in Congress.

Voted for Arnold, so holy fuck, I voted for a Libertarian and a Republican.

Voted for Henry Waxman, Democrat, in the House.

Voted to decriminalize marijuana in Santa Monica.

Voted yes to add an oil extraction tax to fund alternative energy sources. California is the only state that does not currently already charge this tax, and obviously it's not reflected in our gas prices as ours are always amongst the highest in the US.

Amy Klobuchar (DFL - That's the Democratic Party here in Minnesota) for Senate

Mike Hatch (DFL) for Govenor.

Keith Ellison for Congress (DFL - He'll be the first black man from Minnesota to get elected and the first Muslim in the country)

Voted against a Constitutional Amendment to take all of the money from vehicle sales tax and use it for roads and transit. I agree wholeheartedly with dedicating the money, but it should not be a Constitutional Amendment. It should be done legislatively. It goes down the Initiative and Referendum road, so to speak, and I fucking hate that. Direct democracy is a stupid idea.

Ask Tom Delay, that was a quote from him.Is he still around? I thought the Republicans dropped him down a well or something.Apparently, he has not gone away. He is on CNN right now claiming that the Democrats did not win the House, claiming that the Democrats are to blame for the deficit, and airing an entire laundry list of similar grievances.

Any idea when the state is updating? I love those old machines, but they really do seem so out of date.
