Election open thread: Share your thoughts here

on November 2, 2010

Happy Election Day, Oakland!

On this open thread, tell us what’s on your mind about today’s Oakland and California elections.

Do you think Proposition 19 has a chance, and if so, how will that affect Oakland?

Was 10 mayoral candidates too many candidates, or a good way for Oaklanders to select a new leader for the city?

What do you think of former Oakland mayor Jerry Brown taking a second whack at running for governor? Do you think his experiences running Oakland will translate to a second stint as governor?

What was the line like at your polling place — busy, or a ghost town?

As always, keep your comments civil and friendly … and have fun!

    Voting this morning in the basement of my neighborhood church, my up-the-street neighbor greeting me from behind one of the pollworker tables, made me remember how much I don’t like the idea of mail-in ballots–for me, anyway. It’s great to have that option for people, but putting an envelope in the mail doesn’t resonate quite like joining your fellow citizens on voting day.
