So I voted

Conceeding to pressure from my parents and nagging from The Brother, after work, I stopped by my local polling place (granted, it’s on the opposite end of the block which I live on).

The place was pretty much empty, at 7pm when I went, save for the poll volunteers.

There really wasn’t much to vote for. It’s conventional wisdom that Bloomberg is going to get a third term, the Dem nominees for Public Advocate (De Blasso) and Controller (Liu) are given winners. Even my local city council race was a given for the incumbent.

Nor were there any real issues or exciting matters oin the ballot. Contrast this to my home state of Ohio–where eyes are on Issue 3 (allowing casino gambling) and in Cuyahoga County–governement reform.
