Primary Day – VOTE!

It is primary day in Florida.

If you are a registered voter, even if you are not registered in a party, get to the polls and vote. While the party members are making their selections for the general election, there are always non-partisan offices on the ballot and usually a few referendums that they want to sneak by the crowd.

If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.

Local information available at Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections.

Update: Here’s the Florida Department of State official results web site.

Update2: The Republicans have selected Charlie Crist [governor], Tom Lee [CFO], and Cruella de Harris [comedy relief]. The Democrats have selected Jim Davis [governor] and ‘Skip’ Campbell [attorney general].

Locally the sales tax referendum crashed and burned.

This was not a comfortable night for incumbents, as many lost their jobs in local races.

What do you mean I can’t complain? Is this the United States of America where Freedom Of Speech is ensconced in the Constitution or what? Besides, you live in Florida, I live in Minnesota–of course I will complain about Florida politics. Look how it messed up the country in 2000.

Sheesh! Telling bloggers not to complain. What were you thinking?

I was thinking you better get your bullocks to the ballot box when it’s time and do the only complaining that counts [sometimes]: voting.

Is this last call for Katherine Harris?

Heaven forfend, CG. All of the fun would go out of the election if Cruella were rejected by the party. There is no one running against her that anyone outside of their own family knows. she has scared off all of the normal political types so that she can suffer a humiliating defeat in the general election.
