Election Day/Night 2012

Election Day started out like the other days of GOTV [Get Out the Vote], with calling and canvasing, food prep and snacks, with the excitement came the standard election day excitement, challenge and tensions.

The efforts were underway to get the vote out today.

 As the polls closed in Washington, people gathered at the headquarters where all of the action had taken place over the previous 3+ months.

As the returns started to appear on the television the news just seemed to get better and better.  Democrats were turning out in even bigger numbers than in 2008!

With the Obama win announced rather early, the group moved to JP's Club to celebrate the victories.

I want to thank all of the campaign workers that helped narrow the margins here in Washington County.
