    I was working at the board of elections website checking ballot bags from the precincts, and it's a nonpartisan work site so there were no returns being scrolled. I had no idea what was going on in the outside world and no chance to be on edge or bite my nails about each new precinct in each state. I only knew Obama had won when, about 11:30, a woman I didn't know a few tables over called my name, and pointed to a coworker I'd been exchanging whispers about the campaign with for the last five weeks — and shot me a big grin and a thumbs-up. Then I went back to work unloading ballots into storage boxes until three in the morning.
