Election Day

I'm going to vote this morning. In the evening I'll try to find a good place to track the election returns live and in real time. I did this during the '04 election and it was very interesting to see how the initial returns all changed and moved uniformly in a Bushwardly direction, one after the other. States where Kerry had a large lead all narrowed. States where Kerry had a small lead went to Bush. In states where bush started with any lead at all, the lead widened. There wasn't any race I saw that moved even slightly the other way (or so it seemed). So I think it's important, for m own benefit, that I watch for this strange pattern again. It'll be interesting to find out just how tainted our democracy has become.
