Oh, the re-presidenting process is just getting started. We've got the recounting, the litigation, and the recriminations to get through.

Looks like it passed. Your move to Colorado now appears prescient. Bet you're going to start hearing from old friends offering to come visit...

I went as always about 11:15 am so I miss the voters on their way to work and when most everyone is in work, an astounding number of people at town hall. This is not a state that is up for grabs it is solidly decided so it isn't like this is a big deal here. Crazy!
The lines were much longer on DC's Capitol Hill this year even though the DC results in the Presidential election are a certainty. I think people took this election very much to heart and wanted to participate regardless of the likely impact of their individual vote. Be interesting to see how the turnout stacks up when all the results are in.

Unless I am very much mistaken, the main result is that the state and local police forces stop wasting resources chasing people with a joint. The rest will take a long time and is subject to interference from the feddle gubmint.

My post was tongue in cheek. Possession of any amount remains a federal criminal offense. The impact on local law enforcement can be meaningful, reducing cost or freeing resources for other priorities.
