Guess I'm in that 5%, I casted mine at 7.00 itself. :) And this is the 1st time I voted; I wouldn't have if it wasn't for Mr. Tharoor; coz I don't like to vote for picking up the lesser of the evils; but this time there was a perfect candidate. And thanks to blogs like this providing insightful information which reinforced my convictions. Though I haven't commented on any blogs that discuss political stuff (not knowledgeable enough), I've been closely following all of 'em.

Hope Tharoor wins, but I really doubt it. In my perspective, it'll be a close competition between Tharoor and Ramachandran nair. Hope I'm proved wrong and Tharoor wins by a big margin.

Im hoping the lethargic attitude seen during the first hours of polling in Trivandrum would be reversed... We need close to 70%.
