Election Night parties galore


Eight years ago in 2008 we made history by electing a half-African American with an unusual name (born in Hawaii) for US President –Barack Hussein Obama. We are on the eve of perhaps electing the first woman President of the United States of America.  Will it be Democrat Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein of the Green Party? Both women were coincidentally  born in Chicago, Illinois.  Republican Donald Trump and Libertarian Gary Johnson are also running.  We bloggers here at Blog for Arizona will be live blogging today & tonight, and reporting General Election 2016 results. So stay tuned.


And if you want to party or show up at a watch viewing event, go to our Calendar link, where I have posted 15…count them 15 events for tonight!…in Flagstaff,  Green Valley, Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson.

The most creative event is probably the Zombie Apocalypse paintball event hosted by the Arizona Libertarian Party in Tempe. There’s a student activist event hosted by The Men’s Project at the UA Women’s Resource Center. And an American Babylon hosted show at Tap & Bottle, advertising it as “Nasty Women vs. Bad Hombres”, indicative of the way this Presidential election has gone.  And it’s also Taco Tuesday at Ermanos on 4th Avenue, but will there be any taco trucks on the corner?

All events at https://blogforarizona.net/calendar-2/.  Or click on the Calendar link on the top of this front page.

Vote wisely today, November 8, 2016. Polls stay open till 7 p.m.

  1. “We are on the eve of perhaps electing the first woman President of the United States of America. Will it be Democrat Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein of the Green Party?”

    Neither, it turns out. Sorry. If the right woman runs, I will have no problem voting for her. It is about time we have a woman President. Hillary wasn’t the one, though.

    “Republican Donald Trump and Libertarian Gary Johnson are also running.”

    Yes, we noticed…

    • Yes, it wasn’t a victory party at the Pima Dems last night, with Hillary losing after all to Trump. We spent some time there watching the returns. I agree that a there will likely be a woman President someday, hopefully a better candidate.

      Upsets for the Democrats in LD 2 House,and Pima County Sheriff.

      Looks like incumbents PCC Board member Martha Durkin has lost, also Cam Juarez on TUSD Governing Board. But stay tuned for counting of provisional ballots this week, as always in Arizona.

      LD 10 House is within 50 votes between Clodfelter and Mach (so far), so that one is too close to call, will be awaiting the provisional ballot counting.

      Congrats to fellow Blog for Arizona blogger Pam Powers Hannley for winning a seat in LD 9 House.
