Personally, I’d like to see some studies on lost income for Election Day, and how that rivals the first day of March Madness.
Maybe it’s just me. But I have a feeling you haven’t gotten a whole lot done today, either. Oh, I’ve fiddled about looking at some things online and typed up some stuff here and there, but mostly I’ve been biting my nails and waiting for 8 PM when we can start getting some hard numbers back.
So there’s about 4 hours to kill until then. Getting out the vote by calling people or knocking on some doors might be an idea. I’ve done some of that today, so thankfully the day hasn’t been a complete loss.

I thought those were pretty good and they got me through an additional 15 minutes of this day.
Here are some more photos I found on Twitter, shared by various news organizations like ABC Fox and such. You can find them all on #mtpol and I encourage you to check it out if you want the latest news.
Thanks for reading, I’ll put up more later.
