Super Tuesday!!!

Super Tuesday (2008), Super Duper Tuesday, Mega Tuesday, Giga Tuesday, Tsunami Tuesday, and The Tuesday of Destiny are names for 5 February 2008, the day on which the largest simultaneous number of state U.S. presidential primary elections in the history of U.S. primaries will be held. Twenty-four states and American Samoa are scheduled to hold either caucuses or primary elections for one or both parties on this date. Additionally the week long Democrats Abroad Global Primary will begin on this day.

So, today i worked! I worked Super Tuesday! Or Super Duper Tuesday, or Mega Tuesday, Giga Tuesday, and my personal favorite Tsunami Tuesday! Whoah, who came up with this? Anyway, got there about 5.45AM to be greeted by the whole team. I was supposed to be there at 5.30AM but i have this problem about arriving at things on time! But, thats for a whole other post! 6AM official opening of the poles. The work itself was not hard, in fact it was quite boring at times. What i loved was meeting and greeting the voters and interacting with them. I find this very interesting. The voters here were a mix of the very young, the very old and a large russian community!

The day itself seemed to fly by! With 3 (1 hour) breaks the 15 hours widdled down to 12. I enjoy the commraderie of working with a team and leaning on one another for help if needed! Of course, there were some bumps throughout the day but i have to say a successful Tsunami Tuesday was what we were left with at 9PM.

I am now left to watch, with interest the results and then to research the candidates and see where i stand come this November!
