Anne and I voted this afternoon around three, and we were the 299th and 300th voters in our precinct.

Right now, all of Arnold’s bullshit powergrab proposals are failing, except for 74 and 75, which are hovering around 52%. The looney religious whackos are leading in prop 73, also with 52%.
Update (9:40 PM): With 22.9% of precincts reporting, all props are failing now, including Prop. 74. Props 73 (51.2 to 48.8) and 75 (53.5 to 46.5) have steadily fallen in the last 40 minutes. Los Angeles county appears to only have turned in absentee ballots, but so far we are giving a resounding “go fuck yourself” to the governor.
Update (10:01 PM): Los Angeles has yet to come in, but with 31.3% reporting, only 75 is passing, and just barely at 52 to 48.
Update (10:24 PM): Arnold just gave a speech that sounded remarkably conciliatory. Linda Breakstone is trying as hard as she can to spin for the Republicans on KCAL, even as she interviews Warren Beatty and Annette Benning. She should send that tape to FOX News Channel, because it’s a great audition.
Update (11:12 PM): 75 just flipped to “N,” but just barely. It’s currently 49.9 to 50.1. Everything else is trending “no.”
Update (12:14 AM): with 77% of precincts reporting, all propositions are headed for defeat, and I’m going to sleep.
Great waste of time and money, Arnold.
