Early Voting, Day 1

And the oppressed masses trickle to the polls …

Katie bar the door! Here come the voters!

Boy, there's nothing like a sexy constitutional amendment election to flood those voting booths. Yes, I'm being snarky. The first day of early voting brought 881 citizens to the polls, out of 536,317 registered voters. Throw in another 91 mail-in ballots, and that's a whopping 0.17%. We hope you'll excuse us if we don't blog day-by-day totals for this particular election. We'll probably update you in about a week.

But in case you're curious as to where the hotbeds of amending (or nonamending) fervor are: the highest turnout was at the Randalls at Research and Braker (102); the lowest was at the Parque Zaragoza Rec Center (a measly three).
