Well, shoot... I don't know whether to laugh or be offended. :P
...Election night is one of the few nights that I'll actually sit in front of the TV for hours. The first print out was just announced and the candidate that I voted for in the Mayoral race is ahead by 1,000 votes. This election probably won't even be decided tonight - it'll probably be taken to a run off in the general (if one candidate can't get 51% of the vote). :P
I was sad to hear that there are only about 40,000 registered voters in Hawaii and from all reports so far, voter turnout has been very low this year. I guess a lot of people feel that the primary election isn't important, even though it could determine offices like Mayor and Prosecutor... :P We were really sad to see the polling place so empty when Mark & I went to vote this morning. :( And a lot of people were having problems with the ballot. Two or three people in front of me actually had to re-vote because they voted for one person on each of the various "party" ballots. :P I know it wasn't really explained, but it wasn't that hard to figure out that you can't vote for both a Republican AND a Democratic candidate for the same office in the primary! :P
In non-election news, we're still managing to keep up our healthy diets - which really surprises me. :) Mark hasn't had fast food in a couple of months and hasn't had the need to slather mayo or butter on anything - I'm so proud of him! :) I'm still on my fruit and vegetable kick and bought a pineapple today from the market (and spent the better part of the afternoon trying to cut it) :P. Even though I live in Hawaii, I rarely (if ever) eat pineapple because it's such a pain to cut. :P I decided to prepare it with Li Hing Mui powder - which I love - it makes a terrific snack. :)
I'm off to see if the second print outs have come out... Hope you all have a nice evening. :)
