I am checking with family and friends in Florida, Maryland and Missouri. Missouri is turning out to be quite a story, with heavy turnout in the Independence/Blue Springs area. Evangelical Christians are out in force and they ain’t voting for Hawaii’s Golden Child. This may also bode well for the Senatorial ambitions of Todd Akin, who, despite his bonehead statement on rape, may actually prevail over Claire McCaskill.

So, what’s going on in your area?

Is turnout up or down? How do you rate the enthusiasm?
