4:00-4:30 PM Turnout Sampling

I just got back from visiting three precincts here in Irvine. 4pm at precinct #59714 Vista Verde School saw 102 walk-in voters so far out of 2003 registered in the precinct. 754 requsted absentee ballots.

4:15pm at 59717 Turtle Rock Community Center saw 125 walk-in voters out of 1879 total registered voters. 879 requested absentee ballots.

4:30pm at #59715 Bonita Canyon School saw 111 walk-in voters out of 2174 total registered voters in the precinct. 700 requested absentee ballots.

So if we add all this up, it equals about a 5.5% walk-in voter turnout so far at 4:30pm. This is a really low turnout so far. Bottom line.....people are too fat and happy in Orange County to give a crap about good representation in Washington. I'm depressed.

*******************8 PM Poll Closing Update***************************

I just visited the Turtle Rock Community precinct at the poll closing and they had a grand total of 171 walk-in voters which equals about a 9.1% walk-in turnout. The poll workers said that they had also received some absentee votes via walk-in throughout the day, but they weren't sure about the number. I'd have to say from this turn of events that Campbell has an excellant chance of pulling out a victory tonight as much as I hate to say it. He did have the best absentee ballot campaign. We'll see for sure when the numbers start rolling in. I gotta call em as I see em even if the truth may hurt.
