2012 Election Day Open Thread
Today voters go to the polls across the country to decide a wide range of races that will have a big impact on the future of mass transit in California. High speed rail isn’t on the ballot, but many of the choices that are on the ballot will shape the future of that project and of connecting systems.
Election results for California can be viewed at the California Secretary of State’s site. There may be other sites that add results faster. Keep in mind that nothing in a California election is decided until Los Angeles County has reported, and they usually don’t come in until around midnight or 1AM. For some items on the ballot, we won’t know the results on Election Night, and will have to wait a few days as more ballots are counted.
Use this as an open thread for anything election-related.
Streetsblog also has a good overview of transportation-related election issues across the country.
