"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Ada results, mapped

If you have any interest in Idaho results, by all means go to the excellent Ada County clerk’s mapped results page.

It has a very easy tool for checking the results precinct by precinct. It says a lot very efficiently.

In Idaho, Tuesday was generally a good day for incumbency – which with rare exceptions meant good news for Republicans.

Best news for Democrats: Roaring back in the southeast Boise District 18, resuming control of all three seats there, which they had before two were unseated in 2010. (Both of those winning Republicans in 2010 were ousted.)

Worst news for Democrats: Two strong efforts in the west Boise District 15, for the Senate and one of the House seats (and the other House race wasn’t bad, either), fell short.
