3. First Results in! Schvartzer-Necker BIG WINNER!
OK, it's just the Taco Bell results...where Arnie's beef kablob stuffed whatever was picked over the other candidate's greasy foods.

But maybe announcing a winner early on will deter more people from voting eh? That happens a lot.

11. A caller-in to Working Assets Radio on NPR-affiliate 91.7 (Bay Area)
Just said he tried to vote in the Berkeley Hills and the Diebold Accuvote TS ("ToughShit") weren't working, they called out a technician, and people were voting on provisional ballots, but the poll workers seemed to be very confused about how to proceed with the provisional ballots.

13. Voted this morning at 7 a.m.
I was #3 in the precinct (my wife #1 and another regular voter #2). No on recall, yes on Bustamante. Lots of people in line when I left. A good sign for a big turnout. Now, if the Democrats will stick by Davis.....

15. and Bustamante!
What's this bs about voting for Camejo?

You mean Gary "Camejo" Coleman?

You mean Mary "Camejo" Carey?

You mean Larry "Camejo" Flynt?

A vote for anyone but Bustamante is a vote for Arnold
