Las Vegas, NV Votes

Scholastic_familty_190 By Kyle Nowak

Today people are going crazy to get to my local polling place in Las Vegas, Nevada.  At 9:35 pm EST time Senator Obama is beating Senator John McCain by 115 points. Who ever can get to 270 electoral votes will win the election.

I went to a local school, which I use to attend, to interview a couple voters and poll workers. I talked to Jason Allswang, Assistant Planning Manager for Clark County, to check on turnout and see if there had been any problems.  He said that hundreds of people have come through the school voting, but it has been quiet.
