Midday Election Day update

After surveying several polling stations around the Ward, it appears as if turnout is moderate. There has been a lot of activity around ANC races, as write-in candidates emerged in several 3F and 3D races. How ironic would the local election be if it turned on ANC races to provide impetus for turnout?

Cheh and Conroy supporters and poll workers were present at the precincts I visited. The large posters which demonized Democrat Mary Cheh were actually removed by Conroy workers at one station, due to complaints from voters regarding its negative connotations.

The weather is calling for rain later today, so turnout may be suppressed in the evenings.

Get out and vote everyone!
