The last President to win an election without winning FL was

President Bill Clinton.

I believe Hillary will have FL this time around.

Big Voter Problems this morn. Durham County NC/Pen & Paper Check-in Only


Durham County NC's most liberal county - lots of voter issues
Nov 08, 2016 7:17am CST by durhammichael

This is breaking, but something in Durham County has gone wrong this morning. This is the bluest county in the state and the computers don’t seem to be working properly. A lot of folks being turned away from the polling locations this morning in Durham. They’ve gone to pen and paper check-in only.

Welp. Precinct officials in Durham County have been told to stop using the computers for voter check-in and to start using the poll books.

Charlie Reece ✔@CharlieReece
There is apparently some kind of county-wide technical problem that has necessitated reverting to pen and paper. 📝
7:11 AM - 8 Nov 2016 · Durham, NC, United States

From Durham County Website:
Appears the problem will only affect wait time.


Anyone who knows more about this, please post.
Lines will be long enough without this problem. Hope it is fixed.

" Itís my job to film Hillary Clinton everywhere she goes". julie z


I’ve spent more than 6,000 hours with Hillary Clinton over the past 2 years. These are my favorite moments.
It’s my job to film Hillary Clinton everywhere she goes.

Hillary is Serenaded

Mothers of the Movement

Dem Convention/Quiet Moment

Proud Family

"For over a year, it’s been my job to follow Hillary Clinton across the country and film her every move. That means I’ve been behind the camera for pretty much every big moment: the good ones, the tough ones, and some pretty funny ones. And the Hillary I got to know is funny, witty, and thoughtful—and more than willing to let me chase her around with a camera.

Here are some of the best moments I’ve captured, most of which have never been seen by the public before."

Members of group honoring FBI boss have longtime Trump ties


Members of group honoring FBI boss have longtime Trump ties
NOV. 7, 2016 10:19 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) — FBI Director James Comey was honored Monday night by a group whose board includes several people with longtime ties to Donald Trump, including the CEO of the National Enquirer and a convicted felon who goes by the nickname "Joey No Socks."

Among the Trump-connected board members is David Pecker, a friend of Trump's and the chief executive of American Media Inc., publisher of The National Enquirer.

Another board member listed for the group is Alex Schnaider, a billionaire Ukrainian-born commodities trader who built a Trump-branded hotel and condo tower in Toronto which is now in receivership.

The foundation, headquartered on Long Island, funds scholarships and grants to the families of federal agents who have been killed or injured in the line of duty and took in about $122,000 in revenue according to a 2014 tax filing.

A Trump campaign spokesman declined comment.
