How was the turnout?<br><br>
Here in Cuyahoga county, the decision was made in late December to change back from touch-screen voting to paper ballots.<br><br>
Add to the mix, it was freezing rain most of today topped by more freezing rain and snow tonight. I chipped ice from my car three times since 5pm. I wouldn't blame anyone who decided not to drive to the polls tonight. It was very nasty out in Cleveland area.<br><br>
Even though some of the news sites are calling the state for Clinton already, I don't think the final tally will complete until the morning. They extended poll hours here until 9pm to accomodate the ice storm.

CNN is projecting Ohio delagates at 46 for Clinton, 24 for Obama, so she may not make up a lot of ground despite the win. It'll be interesting to see how Texas goes tonight.

I had never atttended a caucus before. I had no idea this was even in place until about a week ago. It didn't seem to make much sense to me.. but it was interesting.<br><br>
I got there late, but after some confusing instructions, was pointed in the right direction and was able to sign in. Then I had to sit and wait for my name to be called as a validated voter. They had to check to make sure we had voted in the primary in order for our vote to be counted in the caucus as well.<br><br>
Hillary won our precinct which I think awarded her around 13 delegates.

The Texas primary, yes. But it was close, about 51-48% with most of Houston still being counted, and Houston is probably going to go strongly for Obama. The caucus is still being counted (although counts for about half as many delegates).<br><br>
It's striking how divided the votes have been by race in most states. Latinos and whites overwhelmingly going for Clinton (although white men seemed to vote for Obama in many places). Especially true in Texas and Ohio tonight.<br><br>
Gah, this won't be over until the convention.

One may vote by absentee ballot even when one is not absent? <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br><br>

Yes. I voted by mail-in ballot too. Ballots had to be received at the Board of Elections by 5pm yesterday to make the tabulation.
