Most of the country, like me, is more than a little sleep-deprived this morning after a long Election Day so let’s keep it simple for now with a quick roundup:
+ The day had typical, isolated excitement but all in all the election system worked – as usual. The award for the jurisdiction who had the worst day was undoubtedly Durham, NC where morning problems led to polling extensions in a few precincts and a long night entering returns.
+ It was a mixed bag for incumbent Secretaries of State as Washington’s Kim Wyman was leading in her re-election bid while West Virginia’s Natalie Tennant was defeated by challenger Mac Warner. [UPDATE: Vermont SoS Jim Condos and Utah Lt. Governor Spencer Cox were also re-elected.]
+ Alaska voted to link voter registration to the Alaska Permanent Fund.
+ Missouri voted to amend the state constitution to require voter ID.
That’s it for now … I’ll be back tomorrow after a little (OK a LOT) more coffee.
Stay tuned …
