May Straw Poll and Open Thread

As always I will do my best to remove stuffed votes after the fact. You can see my method of doing do here. I will post the final results tomorrow. You can see past results here.
Vote in the May straw poll. Also, this is an open thread. (Bumped -- Jonathan)
Update (Chris): I'm back in my apartment for a mid-day break. The scene at my polling place is nuts. We managed huge turnout back in 2006, just about the largest anywhere in West Philly, and so I guess some mayoral campaigns decided it was a good place to stake out. At one point, there were four Evans people, three Knox people, and twelve people overall, standing outside my polling place alone. I'm not used to having competition for my endorsements at the polls. Haven't seen anything from Fattah or Brady around the ward, even though they are supposed to have huge ground games (or, at least, that is what we keep being told). Overall, turnout is fairly light, as only around 15-16% of registered Dems in my division (precinct) had voted by 11:15 a.m. I am still hoping for over 50% Dem turnout by the end of the day, but that might be hoping for too much, as the students just left and quite a few people in my division (over 20%) are registered with "no party" anyway. I've heard turnout is fairly light around the city. Anyway, I'm back off to the polls...
Update 2: Clearly, there was heavy stuffing for Richardson and Edwards. I will work on removing all of the stuffed votes tomorrow. Now, I have closed off voting in the poll, and I need some dinner before returning to the real polls.
