    Interesting. Those mail-in ballots disappear around here, prior to delivery, as well.

    I really don't miss having to vote absentee ballot through the mail like that. I did that for years, but nowadays I go to the voting place on Election Day, even though there is early voting.

    Greg Orman wins in KS.

    That would put Republicans at 52 and Democrats at 48 with Orman choosing to caucus with the Republicans as they'd have the majority.

    The ones I'm least sure about are Alaska and Iowa and Kansas. I've been hearing an awful lot about the unprecedented ground game Begich has run, especially among native Alaskans who aren't likely to be reached by the polls. There are also two recent polls, though of dubious quality, that give Begich 8-10 point leads. However, with polling in Alaska difficult and often incorrect I'm expecting the redness of the state to ultimately put Sullivan slightly ahead.

    In Iowa, polls are close to a tie and early voting numbers look pretty good for Braley. Democratic support has slightly overperformed polls here in the past so I think that might push him ahead as well as the blowback Ernst is receiving in the local press for not responding to their requests for interviews.

    Kansas polls are all over the board and its always hard to evaluate non-major party candidates. Still I think Orman has a slight lead and Brownback's worse than Obama popularity might ultimately put he and Davis ahead there.
    Kudos Anagram. I know you are quite young compared to most of us older farts posting on this forum, but I commend you on staying abreast of the election. Double kudos!!

    We will have to wait until at least December 6th when Louisiana has its runoff and if the Democrat Landrieu were to win there, then we would be waiting until January 6th for Georgia.

    That is unless Independent Orman decides he would caucus with the Republicans, then as soon as he does that, the GOP would gain control of the senate. If not, we wait till at least December.

    As an aside to the above, if Orman goes with the Republicans I wouldn't be surprised at all if Senator King from Maine, another so called independent decides to switch sides and also caucus with the GOP.
    So it could take up to 2 months. Shoud be interesting to see.

    Interesting indeed. And when I checked with the voter registrar she said that had been very common for some reason. I know my ballot was sent, though.

    I have probably the worst mail man in history, he used to actually open my netflix movies and if he liked them he'd watch em and send em back in. I had to go in and speak with his boss about that.

    About as interesting as the Franken-Coleman recount IMHO. I can't believe that clown is going to be re-elected (according to polling data).

    Indeed. Minnesota deserves what it gets.

    With early voting and being a mid-term election, I don't think there will be much waiting where I vote at. Especially since I will purposely go when I think it will be the least amount of people there. I used to vote absentee when I voted in California for many years (when I was in the military living outside the State), but I vote in Georgia now.

    (barring recounts) Who wins the Senate next week?
    Greetings, US Conservative.

    What do the light grey states represent? I live in one of them - Ohio. I'm surprised that California is grey?
