Local election coverage

I spent yesterday working as part of The Commercial Appeal's election-coverage team. Sixteen reporters, photographers and videographers fanned out across the county to report from the polls. I visited 10 local polling places to report on any problems (there were none), the lines, the mindset of voters, etc. I spoke to poll workers, poll watchers, campaign volunteers and voters and filed about 15 reports. Unfortunately, I didn't run into a single candidate yesterday, but I got some great quotes from interesting people with a myriad of concerns.

You can view all the reports here, and maybe you can even guess which ones were mine (Kevin thinks he's picked out a few).
