Chicago blogs its voting

Three hours ago it seemed like a simple idea: find out what the Chicago voting experience was like, through Chicago blogs. I started going through the blogs listed on Chicago Blogs Ring, Chicago Blogmap, and Chicago Bloggers and pulled out any post about going to the polls today. I did spare you the “Vote. That’s all.” posts (there were plenty of those). There are lots of “I went to the polls and didn’t wait long, nor have any problems.” A few problems. Some absentee ballots. Some pictures. A fair number of people voted so that Puff Daddy wouldn’t kill them.

For future reference, there are (currently) 596 blogs listed on Chicago Bloggers (and yet I can’t get them to list FuzzyCo). That’s… a lot. I’ve got 110 blog posts for you, after the jump. Enjoy.

    Gotcha, Paul. Gosh those chads are cute.

    And, my apologies to some of the people I’ve linked to — MovableType keeps sending some of you a trackback every time I add to the list, even though I thought I had told it not to.
