Today is the last day of the LCMS online presidential vote. I hope full statistics will be available afterward - not just the percentage of votes each of the three candidates received, but also (at least) how many total votes were cast, how many were eligible to vote, and the break down of pastoral and lay votes. Regional breakdowns would be nice, too. Even with minimal statistics released this election should give us the clearest picture yet of what the LCMS really looks like "on the ground."
While the announcement of the winner is not set to occur until July 6, we should know a little something the day after tomorrow, as the information I received as a voter told me that Election-America.com will contact me on June 27 if a runoff is required.
As they say in Chi-town: vote early, vote often!
