Note: I am pleased to be joining the experienced and talented reporters and anchors on NBC-CT (Channel 30) for election night coverage. I’ll be on set with breaks into the live, national coverage by NBC News starting at 9 pm and then we’ll be live just before the 11 pm news (possibly earlier depending on how things play out) until midnight.

Prior to that (at some point between 7 and 8pm) I’ll be checking in with Ray Dunaway and former Gov. John Rowland on WTIC-AM 1080 for some analysis of turnout and what it means. Hope you can tune in.

Unlike most people in Connecticut, The Shad will not be happy when this election is over. I’ve had a sense of history since the candidates started to announce more than a year ago (in some case, longer). Make no mistake, this is the most historic election in Connecticut in a lifetime and there is no better place for someone who does what I do than right in the middle of it.

What this entry won’t be is some sort of lecture on why it is important to vote. It is. But you don’t need me to tell you that. What I’ve tried to do since starting The Hanging Shad is to bring an insider’s perspective to politics and the people within. Today, it’s time for the people to speak.
