1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Can't we just have one thread for Election Night results? on: Today at 02:24:41 am
The threads I created and stickied were only to start a discussion about what to do on election night.

I think it's best this way, to have a thread for each of the close Senate races because they are the ones with the most traffic and people who are interested in just 1 or 2 states find it easier and it makes it easier to post and read the comments.

Of course, if you don't like my layout - you can PM Joe Republic and ask him to create his own version of results threads (I would delete mine then).

I just think that 1 or even 4 threads are not enough and makes following the races a "horror".

Imagine 50 people posting at the same time on 1 thread. That's 2 pages in one minute (full with posts about different races) or so and that's not readable. Better split it up in several state specific threads.

Only 7% for Maness? And they shouldn't be including an other category for the runoff, as there will only be two candidates, period.

The 2% in the runoff is "neither", not "other".

Just checked how they look in real life.

Both are pretty good looking, but not really my type.

Question for CO-posters:

When you receive your mail ballot, does the envelope or the info card inside show the addresses of the "vote centers" in the county the recipient is living in ?

Or do people who want to vote on election day (rather than mailing it in earlier) have to look up the centers online ?

In Austria, when I receive my election info card, the address of the voting center is printed on it.

Just curious ...

It lists the drop-off locations for the county. I honestly doubt that people even realize that you can trade in your ballot and vote in-person. I expect only a small sliver if the electorate to do that, although you'll get quite a few who wait until Tuesday to drop their ballot off.

Isn't that printed on the envelope or the info sheet inside ? At least it is here, because I have voted absentee several times.

There's about 2 or 3 pages of info you get with your absentee ballot about what you have to do and what you can do with it, incl. the fact that you can personally bring it to the polling station on election day. (not a lot of people do that here, but I guess the number is bigger in CO where all people are mailed ballots before, whereas in Austria only 10% of the people vote absentee).

^ Good!

Thx. I thought it's the best way to keep it all simple any easy and not create either 50 threads or 1 or 2 threads with 100s of pages where nobody can follow the races really.
