Yesterday the mail brought absentee ballots for Susie and me from the Chatham County Board of elections. Today we shall fill them out (I have a few questions about down ballot races which are not clearly a Democrat against a Republican) and then we shall send them back. North Carolina has a system for tracking one's ballot online so I can tell when it arrives and is recorded. Well, that is two. Now we just have another 150 million or so to go. I signed up to do a little low energy campaigning – going door to door putting door hanger messages on door knobs, no personal interactions. Chatham County is solidly, although not overwhelmingly, Democratic so the more votes we can get out here the better it will be in the state races.
