Vote early -Vote often (only kidding) October 13, 2008

Early voting is here. I am not sure why this is happening in some 31 states but if allows people the opportunity to not be disenfranchised then I am all for it. Is it a good thing for the Blue team or the Red team? My gut tells me it is good for the team that is ahead. But then again  who knows? More than half the states–31, to be exact–offer some sort of early voting.  Early voting differs from absentee voting in that voters may visit an election official’s office or, in some states, other satellite voting locations, and cast a vote in person without offering an excuse for not being able to vote on election day.  Satellite voting locations vary by state, and may include other county and state offices (besides the election official’s office), grocery stores, shopping malls, schools, libraries, and other locations.  Early voting generally is conducted on the same voting equipment used in the regular election, as opposed to absentee voting, which is conducted on mail-in paper ballots.  The time period for early voting varies from state to state, but most often it is available during a period of 10-14 days before the election, generally ending on the Friday or Saturday immediately preceding the election.

These are the states with early voting: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, NM, NC, ND, Ohio, OK, SD, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, WV, Wisconsin, Wyoming.

–  This might tell you who is being helped by early voting. Conservatives Blame McCain As Obama Landslide Approaches

–  Remember that woman last week who got up in a McNasty rally and claimed before the world that she read that Obama is an Arab? Check out this fascinating article on the wacko who has spread that rumor.
