Greg Diamond Sets Us Straight, So To Speak...

OK, folks.  Greg Diamond over at the Orange Juice Blog provided us a little primer following the results of today's ballot tally.  Rather than attempt to do a feeble paraphrase of his comprehensive essay on why we probably shouldn't be getting our collective shorts in a wad yet, you can read his entire tome HERE.

Take a couple minutes to read his take on our numbers... perhaps you'll sleep a little better tonight and the rest of the week.

Thanks to my friend, Greg, for this information.  In a week we'll know how right he was.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!? NO!

Hey, I kinda said the same thing yesterday. Outside of the analysis, numbers, statistics, history and insight.

The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? I must have learned it wrong.

Good grief! Mixing metaphors is one thing, but mixing enemies? :-) We all just need to chill... nothing can be done or planned until we know the results of the election - probabaly a week from not. If Greg Diamond is correct, we'll have highs (hopefully) and lows before then. The trick is to end on a high - wait, that's a different discussion altogether! ;-)

A quote from future United States Senator John Blutarsky in 1978.

Just to clear-up an error in Greg Diamond's article about surrendered vote-by-mail ballots (I was a poll worker at a Costa Mesa polling location on Tuesday and handled a lot of surrendered vote-by-mail ballots from people who wanted to vote in-person, so I feel I'm qualified to make this point):

Surrendered vote-by-mail ballots are not the same as vote-by-mail ballots dropped-off to be placed in the ballot box at a polling location.

Vote-by-mail voters who wish to vote in-person at the polls must surrender their vote-by-mail ballots. They may then vote at the polls electronically or on a paper ballot. The surrendered vote-by-mail ballots are sealed in an Unused Ballot bag which is returned election nite to the registrar of voters for secure destruction. This prevents people from voting twice - once by mail, and again at the polls. If a voter doesn't have their VBM ballot to surrender, they can vote at the polls provisionally, in which case, the Registrar of Voters cross-checks during the count to make sure a VBM ballot was not received from that voter. Again, this prevents someone from voting twice. The more you know.....
