I‘ve given up reading, but still trying to audiobook and Litsy while I spazz about election results.

I don‘t even live in Texas, y‘all... but this one has me so anxious. 😫

I just realized that 2 years ago I was Litsying and stressing out while I watched results come in. I‘m hoping for a different result tonight, but I‘m so glad I still have Litsy and all of you to get me through! 🤗

vivastory I have very vivid memories of freaking out on Litsy 2 years ago as the results came in. It's actually one of my earliest Litsy memories as I had just joined a couple of weeks earlier. Fingers crossed the results are better!!! 13mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m so sad about Beto. And Andrew Gillum too. Still hoping for Abrams. 😢😢 13mo
sprainedbrain @BarbaraTheBibliophage Same here. 😢 (edited) 13mo
JamieArc Sad, but now we can focus on Beto for President, right? 😊🤞🏻. 13mo
sprainedbrain @JamieArc 🙌🏻 13mo
Maewyn I thought the Georgia ejection would be a forgone Republican conclusion so I am glad that it is at least looking like we might need a run off ejection. 🤞🏼 13mo
sprainedbrain @Maewyn 🤞🏻 for you all! Just imagine how GA might have turned out of it had been completely fair. 🤬 13mo
Maewyn If things were completely fair we wouldn't have our current administration.😞 13mo
sprainedbrain @Maewyn so true! 13mo

I keep the library open late and we provide homemade cookies on voting days. We‘ve had record numbers here today: 170 people in the library, assigned 10 new library cards, and had about 2,000 voters.

MelissaSue81 Is the library a polling place? That‘s a great way to engage new patrons! 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa That‘s great! 13mo
NHLibrarian @MelissaSue81 Same building, polling is upstairs in the theater. We‘re sandwiched between the theater and the town offices, it‘s a great setup! (edited) 13mo
