What happened in New Hampshire?

Disclosure: Iíve been to NH on vacation in the fall numerous times, but I really donít know much about politics there, except they have one of the early primaries and they kinda pride themselves on being politically active.

It seems so crazy to me that Biden won NH by almost 60,000 votes, and Jean Shaheen won her reelection by 125,000. They also re-elected their 2 Dem house representatives. So far, so good. How then did NH vote to flip both their massive state House and their small state Senate from Dem to Republican control in a census year with state-level redistricting at stake?

Seriously, I am trying to understand that. On the surface it makes no sense.

It's a beautiful day in NC!!

I've been doing Early Voting updates for NC for the past couple of weeks. Today is election day, and it is bright and sunny and getting warmer by the minute! No rain in sight today, and yesterday's high winds have toned down.

Looks like a perfect day to kick Trump to the curb! I live in the mountains, so it was 34 degrees this morning. Supposed to warm up to to mid-50's by afternoon. The rest of NC will be much warmer than here. There's no hurricane offshore and not a drop of precipitation on the horizon.

Somebody up there has given us a perfect day to get out the vote and to vote ourselves.

It is time to DUMP TRUMP!!

How's the weather where you are??

NC Early Voting Addendum!!

Early Voting has ended in NC. However, the numbers continue to inch up as more counties report and update the totals, and of course the number of mail-in ballots will increase as well. Here are the current numbers:

Mail-in ballots received: 937,894
Early voting (17 days): 3,613,067

Total: 4,550,961

We have now reached 95.4% of the total 2016 votes cast.

We have also surpassed the number of early and mail-in votes from 2016 by over 1,400,000. Even though the Early Voting period has ended, these totals can be updated as more counties report and refine their results. More mail-in ballots are constantly coming in, as well.

65% of the registered Democrats in NC have already voted.

The biggest difference between 2020 and 2016 is the number of mail-in ballots. In 2016, there were 191,601 votes cast by mail, of which 60,043 were from Democrats and 76,154 were from Republicans. This year, there have been 937,894 mail-in ballots! Of those, Democrats account for 425,446 voters and Republicans, 191,190.
