They say the voters are never wrong, and that is certainly the case with the Sylvania merger issue. In this instance the status quo is pretty good. Both Sylvania governments are currently financially sound and providing similar services to their residents. My motivation in pursuing the merger was to secure lower real estate taxes for everyone in both jurisdictions and a lower earned income tax rate in the entire community.
At very bottom, see Obama's quote on 'changing light bulbs' and 'global warming'.
It's always amusing to see Republicans eat their own, but this is a sobering example of how we can thank the election gods McCain-Palin didn't win and didn't deserve to:
I was at a carryout on S.

Barack Obama swept to victory as the nation's first black president Tuesday night in an electoral college landslide that overcame racial barriers as old as America itself. "Change has come," he told a huge throng of cheering supporters.

Sign...I suppose when the police are ready with riot gear "just in case," nothing should surprise us any more.
I can't wait until this is all over. Don't even care who wins - just want it to be over.
I will be a poll worker during the day, therefore I will be gone most of the day, but will re-emerge in the evening at the Republican event at Levis Commons where I will be live-blogging the results and my experiences that happened during the day. Stay tuned for special SwampBubbles Election Night 2008 coverage (see below). I will also be providing some updates to the Toledo Free Press from the event. Stay tuned, there will be lots of excitement and your comments will be welcome.
Waiting until my son gets out of school (3 p.m.) to take him along while I vote. Curious about waiting lines in the area. Please give specific polling location with post, out of curiousity. I vote Sylvania Twp administrative offices, Holland-Sylvania Rd.
I arrived at my polling place bright and early this morning, checked in at the table to locate my precinct and was directed to 11N. My name was apparently in that book, but it was not in the voter registration book at table 11N. Never mind that I voted in the primary in March. Suddenly, I'm no longer registered to vote.
Washington Post has a story about myself, SwampBubbles and how technology is changing the election. It also features an Obama supporter from Akron. Check it out:

I drove by the polling location this afternoon, and the line was out the door and down the street. It is good to see that so many people are voting in this historic election.
In addition...we are in November, and the weather is great! Tomorrow hopefully the weather will be just as nice, so that should not be a factor in keeping people from getting out to vote.
I can only imagine how long the lines will be on tomorrow.
Minutes after Sam "Joe the Plumber" Wurzlebacher dropped in on Fox and Friends this morning, thee hosts informed him that a radio host in San Francisco had threatened his life ON THE AIR the night before.
Apparently, the yet unnamed radio host was unaware that his mic was live during a news broadcast and can be heard ranting about wanting that "...MF-in deg Joe the Plumber dead. "

With November 4 just a day away, State Senator Mark Wagoner and State Rep. Barbara Sears are finishing their elections strong, eager to get back to Columbus and serve Northwest Ohio citizens.
