Vote! Then (political) party!

I was voter #220 at my precinct around 8:30 this morning.

The bus tour was awesome. More later.

I will be liveblogging election returns at the Minnesota Public Radio "Election Night Policy and a Pint" event tonight. Tune in to 89.3 The Current for occasional cut-ins from the event, or go to the MPR web site for a live continuous webcast starting at 7:30 pm. Check the MPR web site for a detailed schedule. Blogger "check-ins" are scheduled at 8:35 and 9:35 pm. It will be where the elite meet to eat on Election Night. Julia Schrenkler, Interactive Producer for New Media at MPR, has convinced me that the event will be awesome, and I'm looking forward to it.

MPR's cool interactive election returns tools here.

It had better be awesome, because I've had to send regrets to a number of election night party invitations sent by candidate campaigns and the Republican Party of Minnesota. These are invariably the blow-out parties of the biennium, giving candidates and party officials a chance to meet and express their thanks to campaign volunteers and paid staff. The Northern Alliance bloggers will be liveblogging over at the Republican bash at the Sheraton South in Bloomington, and on the air on AM 1280 The Patriot.
