1. There was only one Obama/Biden sign at my polling place, versus 6 Romney/Ryan signs. Conclusion: Romney will carry Illinois. (I can dream.)
2. I wrote my name in for an office because a Democrat was running unopposed. I don’t remember which office it was. This is a problem because if I win, I won’t know where to show up for work. All I know is that the office was not Emperor. Alas.
