Quote of the Day - Our elections are free--it's in the results where eventually we pay.
Well, you voted, and got that little sticker to wear around for the day. Congratulations. While I was in Washington, D.C., National Public Radio ran a piece from an Iraqi blogger that went something like this: "we get killed when we try to vote, but vote we do because we take democracy seriously. Americans, on the other hand, fail by the droves to show up at the polls. Why the complacency?"
Late last month, MIPTC offered our readers and clients several judicial suggestions for the local electorate. Thanks to you for going to the polls; you picked each of MIPTC's picks.
You also slogged through the local ballots and propositions, and congratulations as well for wading through that morass. Here are the 2006 local, Orange County election results and the 2006 State of California election results.
The flag is flying a bit straighter today because you took the time to participate in our democracy. You can stand a little taller yourself.
And for all the others that ran in the election, its time to take the signs down now...
