6. With a few exceptions, my state (Washington) is all mail in ballots...
...and I hate it. I loved going down to the local elementary school and joining my friends and neighbors in the ritual of voting. Without that interaction, I have no way of judging turnout - it'll be wait and see. We've got some major issues and a closely contested senate race, but I'm cautiously optimistic. I also happen to think the nationwide picture is going to be a bit different from what the media has been flogging the last couple of months - at least I hope so. Go Dems!
