theknuckler_33: Bill Frist: DamnYankees: I don't like early or absentee voting. For myself, I mean. I like waking up at 5 AM on election day and getting to the polls right when they open and participating in the event. Makes me feel all civic-y.I think I've only ever voted in person once. Just move around too much.I'm the polar opposite. I've been in the same district (indeed, same house) since 2000, my polling place is about a mile away from home and I have been working from home on Tuesday's since at least 2004. I go at lunch, walk there, vote in 2 minutes because hardly anyone is there that time of day, and am back in time to make a sandwich. It's beautiful.

If not, run - don't walk! - to the corner of 85th and 8th immediately.Hey man, if they are handing out free beer, let me know! But if it's just a place I need to patronize, I'll get there eventually. Mrs. 404 has me working on the honey-do list. Starting clinical rotations on Monday (surgery). I won't be around much for the next year.
Close2TheEdge: Here's some amazing news. Most "independents" are anything but. They like to believe they are conscious arbiters of the truth, and vote based on their logical analysis of the candidates. Reality is, they already lean one way or the other, and call themselves independent because it sounds smart and trendy.
404 page not found: Quadruple Entendre: no possible event could occur between now and November to make you change your mindLike, say, maybe we find out Sheriff Joe is right and 0bummer is really a ferner or maybe that Romney is actually NOT severely conservative?

RogermcAllen: LouDobbsAwaaaay: darkedgefan: What's the point. I live in NYC and want to vote for Romney. NYS will be blue until the end of time. I wish I could vote in OH or FL where my vote would matter.Pretty sure moving out of New York isn't a crime.What he means to say is that the current all or nothing electoral college system leaves a lot of voters disenfranchised because their vote literally means nothing. If you live in Illinois below I-80 your vote for president does not matter, Chicago will carry the state for the Democrats even if everyone else votes Republican.
Gergesa: Remember if you are nonwhite then you vote on November 3rd.

I like waking up at 5 AM on election day and getting to the polls right when they open and participating in the event. Makes me feel all civic-y.I used to feel that way until I voted in 2004. After two hours in line, I had to go to work. I never voted in that election.Your employer cannot, by law, punish you for taking time off to vote
Lost Thought 00: Most early and absentee votes are never counted. They only waste the labor to actually count them if they think it would make a difference, based on demographic statistics. In other words, they just predict your vote based on polling data and then assume how you would have voted.
olddeegee: borg: I have to I'm leaving the country in a couple of weeks and not returning until after the election.No you don't. There are many people across the country who are just too disgusted to vote. Most recently a large number of long time Republicans.
