Well, Election Day Was Interesting...

...I heard on the radio that despite the massive payouts for campaigns this year, the electorate was THE MOST INDIFFERENT EVER.

And yet, when I went to vote after work yesterday -- for the very first time since I started voting here -- the joint was jumping.  Even when Obama went head-to-head with John McCain, when supposedly almost every registered citizen showed up to duke it out in the voting booth, I was only voter #59, right at the end of the day in my precinct.

Yesterday?  I was voter #600.  Still a pathetic turnout, but that's more than I usually see showing up.  It makes me wonder who they asked about whether they are indifferent to the midterms.  And how you would even go about measuring something like indifference.
