Major Announcement

A few weeks ago we talked about having the best coverage on primary day of any blog in Virginia history. Here's the gameplan. To make it work we will need your help.

On primary day as you vote, please visit here ASAP and post the following.

County
Precinct Name
Time You Voted
# of Democrats voted so far
# of Republicans voted so far

We know everyone is going to be busy on election day. Please work with the campaign you are helping so we can get this information.

If you help, from these numbers we will be able to project:

1) Statewide turnout for both primaries
2) Advantages in the statewide primaries

If this works we may even be able to project some winners before the polls close.

Right now to make this work, we need your help

If you have a blog, please post this, and ask your readers to sign up in the comments.

For anyone reading this message who can participate, please let us know what precincts you will be sending in on election day.

I can do Mt. Pleasant Precinct in Roanoke County at about Noon on Election Day

I'll be voting by absentee. So I'm useless. But if you want, I can email you with made up numbers.

Just kidding.

I'm new to the reporting of these numbers, so I'll ask what many of you will probably think is a stupid question:

If we're not a poll worker (and are just a voter), how do we get these numbers? I know when I vote in a regular election, the folks at the desk say a number and I know that is the number of votes so far that day. But how does it work with there being Repub. and Dem. primaries? I'll hear my number but how do I know what number they are on at the other table for that primary? (I'm guessing that this is how it will be split up. This may be a misconception on my part.) Do I just ask? Will they just tell me?

Thanks for clarifying for me.

Excellent Question. Yes, just ask the person at the desk. They should check everyone off together, and that is where they keep the count. Just ask them there how many for each side so far. Then they will give you a card that will differ in color and designate which primary you are voting in. You'll give that card to the person at the machine who will either bring up the correct ballot on your screen or give you a paper ballot or punchcard (depending on county)

Larry- I have your back in Purceville (Loundon)

If the desk folks give you any trouble, ask to see the chief officer. I'll be serving as one in Groveton precinct this election.

I have 3 emails from people saying they would help. Godwin precinct in Henrico, Fairview in Fairfax County and Kirkside in Fairfax

NLS - I'll be working one of the polls in the 54th so if I have a chance to get to a computer and shoot off any sort of update I'll get one your way.

I'll get you info for the Cumberland precincts as well as a few in Deltaville.

I'll try to swing by Portsmith if I get a chance.

 
At 11:41 AM, Blogger Virginia Centrist said...

LOL (i get it)

 
At 12:03 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

I'm confused?

 
At 12:21 PM, Blogger Virginia Centrist said...

NLS: Those places are all 100s of miles away from each other. Cumberland is in the far corner of VA. Deltaville is on the middle peninsula. Portsmouth is down in the Tidewater area. Someone was being a jackass.

 
At 12:29 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

Oops. Never heard of Deltaville. He misspelled Portsmouth, I was thinking that was some other town I had not heard of.

In the 37th, who supports gay marriage? I recall reading something/somewhere that Bulova supports allowing it, but I haven't heard anything about the other three candidates. Do you all know anything. In my district, Robinson is the most opposed, probably.

 
At 2:59 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Robinson will crush the gays with his bare hands, if need be.

Sorry, I'm sick today. :( I'm slowly working on something now..

 
At 5:24 PM, Anonymous Michael Golden said...

are you sick with homosexuality? that's a disease, you know.

 
At 5:29 PM, Anonymous Jerry Kilgore said...

What? Huh? do you have the cure? Pat Robertson hit me over the head with a Bible and said that would work.

Rumor has it Leslie Byrne came out as a lesbian, no surprise I guess

 
At 5:32 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I miss the subliminal "Byrne Sucks" advertising. I think it had a real effect on me. Some nights I wake up with a cold sweat and cock my head towards the sky and scream "BYRRRRRRRRNE!!!" very much like Captain Kirk screamed "KAHHHHNNN!!!"

 
At 5:34 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You know who I really miss? LF Payne. He was the man. God I loved him. I just wish...well...this is embarrassing...but I wish he'd be my sugar daddy. Yeah that'd be nice.

 
At 5:34 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

well Byrne is the best, the best for Virginia, the best for Democrats, the best for everyone, get that through your head.

 
At 5:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

want to talk disaster, let's talk about Byrne in a dress

 
At 5:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anon 5:34 -

Oh yeah? I have the same day dream about Ward Armstrong. God I'd love for him to cradle me in those strong arms of his.

 
At 5:37 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

5:34 Anon: You've GOT to be a Republican! HAHAHAHAHA

 
At 5:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anon - 5:37

You have got to be a Byrne lover, join the bandwagon baby, it's taking off.

 
At 5:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

How many right-wingers will win June 14th? Anybody know? I'm guessing 1. 2 If you count Michael Golden, who will pulverize anything even close to gay with his fists. I'm not just talking gay people or bisexual people. He'll come after you if you even act gay (see: Jerry Kilgore).

Anon 5:38:

Quite the contrary. I'd sooner write in "Mickey Mouse"

Chap Petersen for God!

LF Payne lover ---

I'm with you 110%. That guy had it all, and I'm not just talking about a manly body. His speaking voice was titilating.

 
At 5:42 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

LF Payne BRINGS THE PAIN. Did you know that his step grandson played Paul, Fred Savage's best friend in the Wonder Years?

 
At 5:43 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Did you know his daughter is REALLY hot? Reminds me of Creigh Deeds daughter, who is also really hot

 
At 5:46 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

how hot? scale of 1-10. Kirenna Gore hot? Or just Laura Bush Jr. hot?

 
At 5:48 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Deeds is a 9, Payne a 7.

 
At 5:49 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Whoever said that about Golden: Very funny. Michael Golden doesn't hate homosexuals. Read his campaign website. He barely mentions them, except where he says we need to all get our pitch forks and torches and run from Fairfax to Arlington to find them in their big dark scary house.

 
At 5:50 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Who's the hottest campaign manager out there?

 
At 5:50 PM, Anonymous Tom Davis said...

Yes. Tell me. So I can "hire them". For the night.

This blind chick who did the race in PW last year where the old delegate ran, Brinkley I think

 
At 5:52 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Let's get back to Byrne. Isn't it funny how Byrne rhymes with Burn? She's a witch!!! She's a witch!!!

 
At 5:53 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh no, not that Tom Davis guy again. Next thing we're going to hear is that other NOVA Republican politicians cheat on their wives. And wouldn't it be a shame for that to come out.

 
At 5:54 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Really? Let's put some cash on that. If anybody knows any NOVA Politicians who cheated on their wives, post the proof on here and I'll pay you $50. Using paypal, of course.

 
At 5:54 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Just kidding I wasn't gonna pay up. Let's let these guys have their affairs with women (and men sometimes).

 
At 5:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

See NLS: this is what happens when you don't post!!! The crazies come out!!!

 
At 5:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have inside information that Adam Ebbin was seen with a man. This is on the DL, so don't tell anyone.
