John Deeth Blog: A brief dispatch

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Quiet enough that I can take a quick break. Election Day turnout is
down a bit from 2004, mostly because so many people have already
voted. Down some in Iowa City precincts, where many precincts had over
half of registered voters already voting early. Holding at the '04
level in the rurals, where more people still like to vote on Election
Day, and up in a few high growth areas like North Liberty. Election
Day registration is a big hit. 1,228 in Johnson County as of 3 PM,
with student precincts and North Liberty the hot spots. It's really
nice not to have to look people in the eye and say "I'm sorry, you
can't vote." My first vote was an Election Day registration. I took a
letter addressed to my dorm room down to the student union and voted
for William Proxmire (which tells you how old I am).
