President Obama today in Chicago:
Voter Finds Another Romney-Loving Machine in Pennsylvania
County officials have found another Romney-loving robot: A faulty electronic voting machine in Union County, Pennsylvania, has been recalibrated and put back online after it wouldn’t allow a vote for President Obama, Mother Jones has confirmed.
Earlier today, MJ reported on another incident this morning in Perry County, Pennsylvania, in which a voting computer’s touchscreen ballot converted all Obama votes into votes for Romney. The second machine came to light after a local college professor found he couldn’t cast his vote for Obama on it.
There is a reason why Romney was made to go back into PA. They were setting him up for the win. Still may do it.
They think Black people are dumb.
POU! Hello, fam! I am so happy, this has been so incredibly great to see this day come and I was just so happy to cast my vote. This has been an amazing ride and I’m so grateful to find you and from J&J to Wee See You to POU…I thank all of you and look forward to the next four years.
This is crazy. These people better not fuck us over.
ETA: This was a reply to you Miranda, lol.
The fact that folks have cameras on there phones and are documenting this isht is important, but you are right, these crooks in PA should go to jail.
This is the one thing I’m worried about.
5 Signs at Pa. Polling Place: “NO PARKING FOR DEMOCRATS”
Early this afternoon in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, there were five signs in place aimed at stopping Democrats from parking near a polling station, according to Pennsylvania voters Erica Gust and Lori Marks. One read: “NO PARKING FOR DEMOCRATS – WALK THAT WILL BE THE MOST WORK YOU DO ALL DAY.” The signs were mounted on barricades—one directly in front of the polling place entrance. According to Gust, who snapped the enclosed photo with her smartphone, when she returned later in the afternoon, the sign directly in front of the entrance had been removed, but the four others remained. The polling place is on Van Vorrhis in Fallowfield Township, in southwest Pennsylvania. According to Marks, several drivers who pulled up to the polling place were following the directive on the signs, driving away and parking across the street at a nearby library instead.
It remains unclear who posted the signs.
It’s clear to me that CAC posted the damn signs!

EXIT #POLLS: 18-34 Year Olds are turning out at same level as in 08. Good news for POTUS. Latino Vote up to double digits (1st time ever)
I just read it’s 10% in preliminary exits; which is up from 9% in ’08 and POTUS was polling HIGHER now than in ’08. That is huge.

I’d have let them skip school; but I’m not as strict as FLOTUS and POTUS w/my nieces and nephews, lol.
President Obama and his family will have dinner in Chicago with the first lady’s brother, Craig Robinson, an his family, Obama’s sister Maya and her family as well as nieces and nephews, according to a White House pool report. Sasha and Malia Obama fly to Chicago after school today with their grandmother, Marian.
Public schools were closed here in VA which makes sense since many of the schools were polling places.

Latino vote in Florida up to 16% up from 14% in 2008…..AP and Gallup are in serious POll trouble (they gambled Latinos wouldn’t show)

I was totally NOT gonna be watch the returns, but I decided to put on my big girl panties and just take it and let all ya’ll keep me calm
From Cspan: Obama 36% Romney 62%. :(. I feel like a emo progressive right now.
What state is that..Kentucky?
No state it is overall. It is from a graphic from C-Span.
Based on what though? National poll?
Callers into C-span?
Here is the link: http://www.c-span.org/
The data is from the associated press.
This is just charting the results as they come in. It is very early in polling.
There’s also a map charting the results coming in on Google News. I’m flipping back and forth between them right now.
New Hampshire is good: 65.1 Obama vs. 32.6 Romney
From PBS Kentucky and Indiana for Romney. 🙁
GreenLady, are you around?
Can you say that thing about “No weapon . . . . work”?
MSNBC projects Indiana and Kentucky for Romney
Vermont for PBO.
is that good or bad or indifferent?
3 electoral votes, and Bernie Sanders
It doesn’t matter. Indiana and Kentucky are red states.
what time is the livechat coming?
Arizona’s Election Promise: Record Early Latino Vote Taking on Sheriff Arpaio Just the Beginning of Historic Shift
[….] In 2008, approximately 180,800 Latino voters were on Arizona’s Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) statewide. This year, there are 251,752 Latinos on the list, accounting for a dramatic 39 percent increase.[….]
This year, at least 111,975 Latinos in AZ have already voted early. That is already a 28 percent increase in the number of Latinos who voted early this year compared to 4 years ago. This proves that Latinos are turning out to vote in unprecedented numbers across Arizona this year.
In Maricopa County, there are 152,604 Latinos on PEVL, and 70,754 have already voted.[….]

Major Bain-Owned Company Boldly Sides With Obama On Election Eve (VIDEO)
[….] On the eve of the U.S. presidential election, TWC [The Weather Channel] took a prominent stand on climate change and handed a de facto endorsement to Obama, the candidate who believes in science.
TWC ‘s graphic lays out the case:[.click on link to view]
TWC’s well-timed move is interesting for a few reasons: First, TWC has a reach of up to 90 million users between web and mobile. That’s a little more than two-thirds of the 130 million people who voted in 2008. Second, TWC is generally regarded as a non-politically motivated, reliable source. Thirdly, and most impressively, TWC is owned by a consortium that includes Bain Capital, the company that Mitt Romney founded and led for more than 15 years as a major investor.[….]
