Virginia General Election Day 2011: Open Thread


    Polls in Virginia today are open from 6 am to 7 pm. Make sure you get out and vote for Democrats up and down the ballot, that is if you don’t want monolithic, 1-party Teapublican (mis)rule – not to mention draconian restrictions on a woman’s right to choose, guaranteed gridlock on the roads, guns in schools, nasty anti-immigrant measures, etc., etc. – over Virginia for the next two years.

    Please feel free to use this thread to tell everyone what you’re seeing in your neck of the woods. Thanks.

    P.S. Potentially vulnerable Democratic Senators include Barker, Houck, Reynolds, Puckett, Miller, Edwards, Marsden, Colgan, and possibly even Puller. Other interesting Senate races to watch include Dodson vs. Garrett (22nd), Smith vs. Bell (19th), and possibly (hopefully!) Mitchell vs. Black (13th). In the House, keep an eye on Garces vs. Dudenhefer (2nd), Armstrong vs. Poindexter (9th), Langrehr vs. Yost (12th), Bennett vs. Villanueva (21st), Danner vs. Comstock (34th), Brennan vs. Farris vs. Wall (59th), Barlow vs. Morris (64th),Clingan vs. LeMunyon (67th), Kondratick vs. Ramadan (87th), and Abbott vs. Watson (93rd). Finally, keep an eye on the Braddock district race between Janet Oleszek and John Cook (plus independent candidate Carey Campbell) and the race for control of the Fairfax County School Board. Should be interesting.
