A couple of quick shots from around town as we wait for DC numbers to come in. John and I hit a few spots in the Brookland/Michigan Park/North Michigan Park neighborhoods of Ward 5. The Vince Gray presence was much more pronounced than that of Mayor Fenty--to be expected in this part of town but bad news nonetheless for the incumbent.
Precinct 66: Backus Middle School
Nice violin playing--patriotic music to serenade the voting.
Campaign volunteers were reporting relatively light turnout. With DC now having early voting, it was difficult to ascertain whether people were taking advantage of voting early, or whether enthusiasm and motivation was down. Once we start to get some numbers, we'll be better able to answer this question.
