This is what democracy looks like.

Herewith, the last sixteen matchups of the first round. They may also be the best. Barbers, bloggers, one elephant and a whole lot of musicians. Please remember that Tres Shannon has given his endorsement to Packy. This may influence your vote in some way. We don't know.

You can still vote in the other three regionals, the Vera Katz, Bud Clark and Dorothy McCullough Lee regionals. You can find the whole bracket here. You have until Monday at 8 pm Pacific Standard Time. May God have mercy on us all.
