24 hours until Springfield's polls close

Tonight there are some candidates for City Council who know they don't have a prayer of being "one of the nine" but hope to make a good showing in any case. Some know they're pretty much a shoe-in by virtue of the power of the incumbency. And then there are a couple of incumbents not absolutely sure they'll be re-elected, and a couple of challengers who might have a chance...and then there's the question of ward representation, Question One on the ballot, which will change the landscape of elections in this city from this point forward... if it passes.

I'm done being nervous for tonight, won't do any good, trying to remember when I had my fast cup of coffee because I must get to bed soon and get up early. Good luck to all of us.
