Election Celebrations

Yes We Can Has

Yes We Can Has

Reports are coming in through Twitter, LiveJournal, text, IM, email, and all other sources that Seattlites are dancing in the streets because of Obama’s win tonight. Closest to me: Pike Street Downtown up through Capitol Hill. My best friend called to say that folks were walking down the street chanting “OBAMA! OBAMA!” Other metbloggers report similar stories: friends banging on pots and pans, champagne, beer, terrorist fist-jabs. Democrats currently hold all three sections of government on the national level.

Not all results are so clear-cut. The race for governor is still fairly close. Some networks elsewhere in the nation have called it for Gregiore, it’s one to continue watching in in days to come. After the last election in which the race was decided by less than 200 votes…don’t count your chickens before they are hatched.

Prop 1 is currently passing. Assisted Suicide I-1000 is currently passing. I-895 is currently tanking. Care Workers Certification is currently passing with flying colors. Pike Place Market Levy is currently passing, as well as City Parks. We’ll see where everything stands within a few days.

How was your election night?
