Default Has anyone here actually voted early?

I haven't seen any posts, or, if they were there, I missed them.

Obama has made a big push for this, and I'm wondering who's responding...from what I've read, like 90% of the people voting early are voting for him.

I'm assuming that it's the full ballot, not just the Presidential election? How does it work?

We applied for a mail in ballot. We have them, just need to fill them out and mail them out on Monday. We live in Ohio and I'm sure each state is different.

Our polls will open at 7 am and that's when I have to leave for work. By the time I get home and to where I go to vote, I'll probably be in line for hours. No way.

I sent in my absentee ballot last week. So yeah, you can vote early - by mail.

I think absentee is by mail only. Didn't Ohio with acorn do the early voting where they could cast their ballots right there?

No, I did not vote early, but a few years ago my husband and I were going to be out of the country and did vote early and it was a complete mess. We went to get our papers at the court house and they gave the ballots to us without even asking for identification. I even questioned the lady and she said, “No, I do not even have to have a signature from you.” Off we went and no one was even watching. I am sure that this is not the case in most places, but it bothered me that so little care was taken to let us have our vote be 100% authentic. I did contact local and state officials without much interest, but Quinn and Rose (The Warroom) at least put me on their radio program and let me express my concern. Otherwise – nothing was done. So, who knows how many “wrong identity” votes are cast every single election.

No - a friend in Colorado told me she was going to vote early yesterday - at the mall.
