For the Record

For what it's worth, turnout in my Republican-monopolized town here in New Jersey seemed surprisingly low in a year when this state's vote actually means something in theory. I went to vote at what should have been a high time, and had exactly zero wait, and there was no one else coming or going for my district. Other districts (there are several that vote in the same building) were not much better. This says nothing about the Dem turnout, of course, since as I said the Republicans have a monopoly in my town (there wasn't a single "D" on my page of the voter list, for example). But the apparent lack of enthusiasm on the Republican side at this point says a lot.
