Election Day Blogging

Posted By on Tue, Nov 7, 2006 at 9:58 AM

VCAM has set up an election day blog called Exit Voices. People are leaving their voting stories in the comment thread of the post.

Says Vermonter:

I voted in Monkton this morning at 7:30 — and for the first time onan optical scan ballot. No more folded paper in a plywood box for us.

Not sure exactly how I feel about it…

Kind of missed the folksy smalltown feel of the old system. But, atleast optical scans have both the benefits of speedy vote counting anda paper trail.

Not sure why, but I love this kind of anthropolical snapshot of our electoral process.

And I love election day! It's like a big holiday. Also, it gives us the opportunity to put the election behind us.

UPDATE: People are also sharing their voting stories on Freyne Land. Surprise surprise.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
