I'm so nervous it's like I'm waiting to find out whether or not I got elected president. It goes without saying that so much hinges on this day. I just got back from doing door-to-door canvassing in Dayton with Emma, Evelyn, and Cole, and I am totally exhausted. Talking to individual people who, by this point, have voted for Kerry, have voted for Bush, or have not voted at all was absolutely terrifying. If the Last Call weekend with VoteMob was exhilarating, today was terrifying. I don't know what I'm going to do if Kerry doesn't take Ohio. It's easy to prematurely project the feeling of empowerment that comes from working on a campaign with like-minded people onto some false idea of the spirit of this nation.

Today has been so rainy and dark and busy; everything feels like a mess.

All that is left for me to do is to take a shower, bring the snacks I've bought over to LBC for the Election Night Party (hopefully it'll end up a party), and wait.

(There's still a bit of time left to vote.)
