Alright, readers, this is it. We've all heard the old cliche that "the only poll that counts is on Election Day." As cheesy as it sounds, it's true. So get out and vote if you haven't already. Go vote!

Just got back from voting here in Henry County at the Mountain View VFW. Voter #197 at 10:30. I didn't see poll workers for either party, but there was a goodly number of yard signs, about evenly matched by party--multiple coordinated Dem signs as well as a smattering of Wagner signs. I saw none for Shannon, but I guess the coordinated signs count. Also saw some McDonnell/Bolling/Cuccinelli signs, plus some for Del. Merricks, who is unopposed.

Side note: plenty of elderly white folks getting out to vote. Not exactly Creigh's demographic, but to a larger point, VFW is not the safest place for older folks to be voting. The parking lot is one giant hill and I've seen plenty of people nearly fall getting out of their cars there before.
