I have arrived in America.

Thanks to the awesomeness of the Internet me and my postmates will be watching the election results come in live. The very first polls close at midnight my time but it should be worth staying up for.

Beninese people are split. About half want Obama to win because he's African, and the other half want him to win because he's young. Pretty much everyone is interested in the outcome. A bunch of old guys are going to stay up all night at the youth center down the street, drinking and listening to the results on the radio.

Thanks to the Dallas County Elections Board I got my absentee ballot in what must've been record time, which makes this the first election I've ever voted in.
