Election results are in:
- Should we amend the state constitution to forbid gay marriage? Most Louisiana voters said yes, surprise, surprise. What a fucking stupid idea.
- We’ll be seeing a big turnover on the Orleans Parish School Board, which seems like a good thing. Sandra Hester didn’t win, but she came in second with a very respectable showing, something like 16% or 18%.
- But the big story is the fact that at some 50-odd precincts, voting machines were not present when the polls opened, so people were turned away and told to come back later.
