I registered Democrat when I moved back from overseas, mostly so I could vote in the local races. Here is rural Oklahoma, the Democratic party is generally the conservative party, at least when it comes to county commissioners, mayors, sheriffs, etc. I was number 77 in my precinct to vote. When I went to sign the book, my wife, Sally, had already signed it. She voted this morning on the way to work. She said she was number 26.
I did vote for one or two democrats today. (Not Obama) Most of the folks I happened to have voted for were Republican. I think if everyone in Oklahoma who were Republican at heart would actually register that way, we wouldn't have any Democrat candidates!
I am excited that all the political ads will be over tomorrow! Actually, I heard that they will start campaigning for 2012 by November 15.
