Cynthia McKinney v Hank Johnson: Liveblogging the Runoff

Today I will be liveblogging election events during the day and tonight I will be at the Hank Johnson election party liveblogging the returns. Most of the liveblogging will take place at Dignan’s 75 Year Plan but I will do my best to crosspost here. Please email me any tips or news about today’s runoff.
8:50AM – While doing some research I have discovered that Cynthia McKinney’s campaign website is down. I wonder what sort of lies are on there that they have to cover up.

9:00AM – I am heading out to go vote. I’ll report back in a bit on the turnout.

9:12AM – Just received a report from a friend in central DeKalb that the Hank Johnson supporters near her polling place were many and appeared well organized.

10:15AM – Wow! Just voted at my polling station next to Oglethorpe University. Poll workers said that around 230 people had voted so far today and that there had been a steady stream all morning. This sounds like a stronger turnout than some were expecting.

10:30AM – Another report from Briardawg: “I voted at Oak Grove precinct north central DeKalb. I was number 135 at 8:30 this morning, but I did not get a break down of how may GOP or DEM ballots had been cast.
Hank Johnson had supporters along Briarcliff Road and in front of Lakeside High and Oak Grove Elementary. There were large “vote today

    Maybe her server’s overloaded. I got her site to load once, but not again.

    And if I were her, the thing I’d be interested in changing on that site is the “Cynthia was right about 9/11 war games” link, which goes to a blog post that includes the following:

    “This revelation about the war games is even more evidence 9-11 was an inside job. This brothers and sistahs is why the NeoCons and Zionists want to defeat Cynthia McKinney in this upcoming run off election!”

    I suspect a lot of bad press could come from linking to such language.

    Overheard at Montgomery Elementary: A man voting in the D run-off complained that Sin-thia and Hank weren’t on the ballot and was going to file a dispute (We’re in the 6th now, buddy).

    Dignan,

    You’re a disgrace. How can you, as a white male voter, NOT support Cynthia McKinney? She ALWAYS supports you.

    In Gwinnett, about 1200 people have voted in the 4 Congressional district. The total votes case in the 4th CD race on 7/18 were 2054 votes. Thusfar, turnout seems higher than expected in that portion of Gwinnett.

    FYI: The Gwinnett totals on 7/18 were:
    Johnson: 847 or 41.24%
    McKinney: 836 or 40.70%
    Coyne: 371 or 18.06%
