Radnor voters came out in impressive numbers.
Radnor Township saw a high voter turn out on Tuesday. The unofficial results from Delaware County, with all machines reported, show Radnor voters casting 7,152 votes for the Obama/Biden ticket and 6,222 for challengers Romney/Ryan. Votes were also cast for the Libertarian and Green parties’ candidates. Throughout the day some Democratic and Republican supporters expressed hope, but also caution and nervousness, about their presidential candidate’s odds at winning.

A top campaign aide calls the win one bright spot in a disappointing night for GOP in DC.
Republican Incumbent Congressman Pat Meehan of Drexel Hill (Upper Darby) (R-PA7) easily defeated Democrat Challenger George Badey of Radnor to win a second term in the U.S. House Tuesday. Meehan held an nearly 2 to 1 margin in Delaware County to retain the seat he won during the historic GOP victories of the 2010 Obama mid-term elections. The Republican momentum was not with the national GOP Tuesday night, prompting one top Meehan Campaign official to call his victory as "at least one bright spot in an otherwise disappointing night." During his victory speech Meehan told a ballroom full of supporters at the Springfield Country Club that his focus during his second term will be on jobs. Meehan cited his work to save the gasoline refinery …
Is it time to change the way politics are conducted in the United States?
Since the Constitutional Convention of 1787, two major political parties have run the American political system. In 1787 it was John Hancock and the Federalists, competing against Sam Adams and the Anti-Federalists. Today it’s the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. But is this system a good one? In 2010, the Democratic Party lost control of the United States House of Representatives. In an interview on October 23, 2010 with the National Journal, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell commented that “[t]he single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” This vitriolic partisan statement is but one small example of the bitter partisan politics that have dominated both …

Election Day brought problems at polls in several areas of eastern Pennsylvania
EASTERN PA — Several reports of voting irregularities in Eastern Pennsylvania emerged on Tuesday, the day of the presidential election. In Easton, signs appeared offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to voter fraud convictions. A constable for Easton’s 10th ward removed one such sign staked into the ground after consulting with an elections attorney on site. The Pennsylvania Commercial Action Network, the same group that posted “Replace ObamaCare” billboards around the state, made the signs. ID Requests Many Easton voters also reported poll workers asking for their IDs, even though IDs are not required for this election cycle under the law.
