Turnout was 52.2%, the lowest for any general election since I started administering elections in 2011, and down 20% from April's at-large Senate election.

Edit: I was wrong - the April 2012 at-large Senate election had very slightly lower turnout.

Nearly all features in Android phones are their own app so you can customize the layout.

How messy!  And I'm scared to ask what a 'widget' is, so I won't.

A widget is a generic, theoretical unit of economic production, as in the classic economics problem:

"If Company A manufactures 4,000 widgets and Company B produces 10,000 widgets, causing moocher politicians to outlaw 'unfair competition' and confiscate 90% of widgets from both companies, how many hunky industrialists must Dagny f--- before the market equilibrium is reached?"

Yes, of course. But we're in the strange position of having no RG (no updated official list with which to check the validity of ballots) and having no declared candidates for Blair's seat. Hopefully those issues can be resolved by this time next week.
