The Primary in Tucson

Quiet here; no signs close to the two polling stations I saw close up–Ventana Vista Elementary school, in the heart of the Tucson Foothills where my daughter goes to school ,and the Ramada Inn off of Tanque Verde near the corner of Sabino Canyon Road where I was designated to vote.  Many people lined up to vote, but I hardly saw any signs for those endorsing their favorites who were running  and there were no people giving out leaflets on their chosen candidate.  Gosh, in this way I miss MD.  People in Howard County, MD, where I left 4 years ago, made a huge deal of the primaries and many talked politics and tried to convince their friends to vote their way! It is so apolitical here, I just can not get used to it! I guess I love politics and I love Hilary, so here is hoping she comes in strong tonight! And I feel I should have done more for her, but have to admit it, talking politics seems to turn off a lot of people here!
