* What method is used for voting (touch screen, optical scan, etc.)?
* Did you have any trouble voting (technical or registration glitches)?
Check out Melissa’s post about today’s vote, A Good Day for America. A snippet:
America’s greatest strength has always been its progressiveness-our existence as a melting pot and our awkward struggle toward a true egalitarianism, where all people are free and equal, where every individual can live up to her or his potential. Progressives love America for what it can be; they look always forward. Today, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be talking to people about the future, about doing things for this nation that have never been done before, drawing roadmaps in new directions, while John McCain and Mitt Romney tread the same marshy, fetid ground in which better and worse men than they will ever be have already left layers of footprints. Today, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton transcend tradition, while John McCain and Mitt Romney desperately squabble, each trying to convince the Republican base that he is the Great White Knight who will defend it.
Delegate counters are below the fold.
