Mayor Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel-Newsom cast their ballots this AM in a garage up in the  Upper Terrace neighborhood.

Montana tagged along to learn about the voting process:

This voter waited a bit for a chance to meet San Francisco royalty:

Plenty of Giants fans are still showing their colors today:

Appears as if the Newsoms are signed up to be vote-by-mailers, so they had to vote provisionally today, AFAIK. (I should be up-to-speed on this issue but I’m not. But logically, you can’t vote at the precinct and also by mail, so they let you vote and then check to see if your ballot arrives in the post.)

A Kennedy-esque scene at precinct 3808:

And all the while, dude here is just down the street watching the media circus travel back and forth.

(For some reason contractors are all over Upper Terrace these days, building and rebuilding houses everywhere.)

The Newsoms then took off for an 11-hour non-stop day.

They’ll most likely be rewarded with good news after 8:00 PM tonight…

Just Try to Read This Official Car Towaway Notice From the City of San Francisco

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

Come on, you can do it. Take a gander at the dollar amount of the fine for abandoning your car on the streets of San Francisco. Let’s agree that dollar amount has two digits, but it is $75? $85? $88? $98? $80? $90?

This is no mere triviality - if you don’t get the proper notice then you might not have to pay the fine. As to whether San Francisco can legally tow away your ride with the way the local laws are written these days, well, that’s up in the air.

Can I explain why the owner was given only three days to move in light of the last year’s policy change allowing seven days? No, no I cannot. Click to expand.

Are San Francisco drivers gonna get a massive refund the way it just went down South San Francisco Way with the red light cameras? [KRON's Eve Taft- why isn't she in every romcom Hollywood can produce?] No se.

I’m the first one to rain on the parade of plaintiff’s attorneys with ridiculous notions of what constitutes a decent lawsuit, but this one, this one looks good.

The mise-en-scene atop Buena Vista Heights at the end of Masonic, where it’s so hilly you might need an exemption to drive your SUV around.

This aging, now-woodless Willys Jeep Wagon ur-SUV needs no exemption for excessive weight as it’s not close to the weight limit. (I ought to call it in to Pimp My Ride or something.) Wonder where it is now, wonder if it got towed. [Dude, where's my car? What happened to my woody?]

Anyway, we’ll just have to bide our time to see what occurs with this not-yet-certified class action lawsuit. Writer Joe Eskenazi will keep us posted, I’m sure.
