After voting, I spoke with the man who was handing out the ballots. I asked him how the vote was going and he said it was going very well, that there had been 800 votes cast. That was at 3:30pm. The final tally was 1023 total votes.

Congratulations to all who took part in this expression of democracy at Farmington Woods, those that voted Yes and those who voted No. This was an inspiring day, but we are not done yet. Today was just the beginning. The fellow handing out the ballots also had this to say: "It's just too bad we don't have a plan B."
Well, tomorrow I will present Plan B, C, D, E, F & possibly G to the residents here. They are the ones who should determine the future of Farmington Woods and they have spoken in a big way today. This was a referendum on an outdated business model and there are many viable alternatives to be examined as we move into the future.
