Already done ...

In reply to: VOTE !!!

I did embarrass myself in the process, though. The last time I visited the county election office was when I registered years ago.

After I arrived at the county courthouse, I discovered that the election office had moved to a different building ... 2 years ago ... so I had to find the new office in order to do the early vote.

This morning I rode my bike through town (it has been a glorious day for riding today) and noticed quite a line at the election office, presumably for voters, on the last day of the early voting.

I don't know how it works in other places, but around here the election office has been allowing early voting until noon on Saturday mornings. They will not allow voting on Monday, presumably to allow them to get everything ready for Tuesday. They told me there were several hundred people voting every day. In a small county that adds up to quite a few early voters.

Gee..With all these States voting 1 and 2 weeks early the election will be over by the time I get to vote on Tuesday. Good idea, but our State does'nt have that option. Wish it did. Guess I'll have to pack a lunch when I go.

DON'T VOTE

In reply to: VOTE !!!

unless you are informed about the issues, candidates, etc. Otherwise you are diluting the votes of serious citizens.

Actually I figure in another cycle or two there will be no write in available anywhere, except maybe for mayor and town council in very small towns.

That's the way it's going, good or bad.

Hi Dr. Bill; I noticed you said previously you had already voted. Early voting? Thats new to me. We have to wait until Tuesday. I doult if that early voting would fly up here. Especially Sat. Most workers get Tuesday off to vote around here.

It's new down here ...

In reply to: Re: (NT) Vote early and vote often?

Or at least it is new to me. I think they offered it in my county for the general election 2 years ago but I'm not sure. A lot of places in the US do this now, but I don't remember the history behind the decision to permit it. I did file an absentee ballot for my first general election, back when I was in college. I remember having to convince the clerk in my college town that I really did need to vote absentee. I was only 30 miles from home, but without reliable transportation it might as well have been 3000 miles. Other than that I've voted in person on election day every time since. That is, until this year. I had something planned Tuesday afternoon, so I took advantage of the 'no excuse early voting'. It is different from an absentee ballot since I used an actual voting machine so there is no mail-in required. Also, I did not have to give a reason for voting early. They let anybody vote early. I presume my name was marked on the voter record as already recorded but I don't know how the process works.
