Go vote

If you haven’t yet cast your ballot in this most contentious election, today is your last chance.  Go do it.

Based on the number of cars and voters at the Humboldt Herald precinct, turn out will far exceed the June primary.  No doubt the race for California’s next governor, and the Proposition to Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis are big draws.

Tonight’s election coverage will offer something new when Access Humboldt will air live video from the KMUD studios, and a team of on-the-ground reporters.  Catch it on channel 11.

KHUM will do their usual thing broadcasting from various election night parties .  The Herald will work to keep up with it all.  The fun begins sometime around 8pm.

UPDATE: For more election night coverage tune into KINS, KWSW, KEKA, KEJY and KURY from 8:45 – 11ish.

    Very high turnout in Redway this morning. I actually had to wait in line to feed my ballot into the machine. This was the highest turnout I’ve seen in years. I think 2000 was comparable.

    Perhaps it was a high turnout in Garberville, because there are no polls in Shelter Cove?

    The Eureka/4th district races are the ones to watch.

    I just hope Lincoln was mistaken for today and all of the people aren’t fooled.

    HiFi truly has ‘congnitive dissonance’. (S)he’s certain a Hobbesian ‘dog eat dog’ worldview is patently obvious but is distressed that people don’t agree with that and even see him(her) as uncaring and unnecessarily cruel and inhumane. (S)he wants to be respected and liked for having wisdom, but instead is distained and reviled as a antisocial deviant. Sad life for HiFi, feel sorry for him(her).

    I’m not certain whether a high turnout in Eureka would be good or bad for local progressives. Obviously it would be good for Brown and Boxer.

  10. November 2, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Please, DON’T VOTE!

    11.16am, It is “can’t” not cant. You shouldn’t be casting stones. But thanks for the laugh!

    Not a Native. You don’t understand much in life. What you call “compassion” is actually taking the easy but cruel way. Giving handouts fosters dependence. Tough love forces people to learn to fend for themselves and is actually kinder to the less unfortunate. Teach a man to fish and all that.

    Not that I expect you to understand that. It would take effort for you to think outside your little box.

    HiFi, You still CAN’T come up with anything demonstrating that Bass is smarter than the average puppet I see.

    Heraldo, we’ll be simulcasting on all five of our stations — KINS, KWSW, KEKA, KEJY (after I’m done with volleyball) and KURY — beginning at 8:45 and running through 11 or so. So it doesn’t matter if you’re near Crescent City or close to the Mendo county line, you can catch live results with Eureka Broadcasting.

    I’ll be out in the greater Eureka area interviewing candidates from the field.

    Thanks for the update, Dan. I’ll update the post.

    Prop. 19 campaign is robo calling voters with the voice of Susan Sarandon.

    Yes, and Leonardo DeCaprio is robocalling against 23 and 26.

    Who listens to robocalls? Doesn’t the idea that people base important decisions (like votes) on TV ads, mailers, robocalls, blogs and other sources of half truth scare you?

    I got a call from Condilezza Rice last night but didn’t actually listen to it to hear what she was calling about.

    QE – if they didn’t work, nobody would be paying for them. Doesn’t bode well for the species, does it?

    Prop 19 and 22 = Yes

    No on the rest.

    In fact, was not 20 and 27 a mind-tease for voters!

    Also, several write-ins at the state and federal levels with none as the write-in choice.

    Screw the dualopoly participants.

    No, doesn’t look good for our culture. Election season has really reminded me how stupid all of this is. Our political institution is very much like major league sports. While interesting to consider the amazing amount of consumerism and jobs are needed to fuel these institutions, its appalling at how crassly commercial it is. At least when they appear so wasteful and inefficient.

    how much you want to bet the news media in humboldt county will fail miserably to report well on the impacts of prop 19 losing? this election has opened an amazing window for humboldt news media to really explore this topic that is so important to the north coast, but it won’t. why the local news media will not cover this issue is an interesting question. i might guess that some of the reluctance to cover the issue well is a result of fear. but, more likely, it’s just that humboldt news media doesn’t really cover any big picture story well. for example, see the klamath river dam story that is hugely monumental but gets sub-standard coverage.

    About jobs,

    let us face it, 4 years more and only more whining about jobs not being in abundance. It’s a wonder, but not really if ya think about greed, how many people could give a crud about another person’s rights when those rights are infringed by those who just are working their jobs. So, one’s financial and economic selfishnesses and greeds can be another’s abuse.

    This is one crux of the job market – quality jobs and not paper pushing, non-producing jobs that, in order to fund that job, some employee has to count on some rate-payer to fork over extortion funds for increases in, let’s say, dwindling insurance coverages, that can’t justify raising the premiums, but for it not for profit marginizations. Businesses that operate like this make it hard to have sympathy for former employees whose former job was actually hurting “unconstitutionally” a fellow national citizen. So, it MAY be way better to focus on “smart population growth” in lieu of the increased starvation, homelessness, joblessness, etc…. created by pyramid schemes and scammers.

    Such a weakened country right now, predictable.

    very busy at my polling place in Eureka at 6pm, had to wait a few minutes!

    One thing about the busy polling stations – lot’s of jobless voters with nothing to do but try and vote for saving their right to vote (Ya know, because they will lose their residence without income to pay for that vote, err rent and mortgage).

    Aye, such the synchronized social flex-plate forces pulling along a politically slipping transmission leaking ATF fluid galore as if freshly stamped ink upon newly minted federal treasury bonds……..

    Debt as America now has it is virtually insurmountable and will never be fully paid down enough to make a difference, period. A real weird-like event will save the day for the schemers and scammers so that debt is forgotten in favor of some even greater crisis. History has taught society well, if we respect that knowledge passed down, for better or for worse as outcomes.

    KMUD often gets little respect from other local media sources, but compared to the ongoing travesty that has been Channel 3’s so-called news dept., not to mention that Nazi station KINS, KMUD is a great source of journalism.
