As we sometimes say in the south, "We're in the short rows now". Polls just opened in NC for the final countdown. Local news is reporting that about half of the folks have already voted. Video shows steady stream of folks. Voting before they have to go to work. We'll wait until about mid-morning to avoid the early, lunch-hour, and after work crowds. See YA at the polls. Pause before hitting submit: Now the local news is reporting a probable delay in getting the results. Anticipating the likelyhood of more hanging chads.
