I went and voted this morning because Tuesday I may be on the road. I live in a county of 4800 and staunchly Republican (maybe 500 of us commie Dems). The clerk said they have already had over 15% vote and more were coming in as we left. They report around 30% in Wichita, hardly an Obama hotbed. So does all the early voting necessarily favor Obama?

And on a dad note, my daughter turned 18 this summer. She will be tied up on Tuesday so she voted with me. Way to go girl. The best thing for me was how nervous she was and how seriously she took the privilige. A proud papa moment.

I'll second that.. I also have an 18 year old daughter voting for the first time... I am very proud she was determined to make sure she was registered properly and set to go. On the flip side, it continue to makes me feel older :>

I voted two and a half weeks ago. In fact, my whole family has already voted - my 18 year old son and 21 year old daughter at college, and my wife voted last thursday. I think voting early is the way to go.

Now, if only once you voted the TV commercials and robo calls would stop coming. My wife voted for Hillary in the primary because the McCain thing was already decided and we had no decisions on the side we would normally vote for. So now we get 2 billion Obama robocalls a week. I'll never forgive Rush for suggesting that.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

The only thing I have against early voting is that the results that leak out can effect the main day of voting.

I dunno, I'm a registered Democrat who has campaigned for the last three Democratic presidential nominees (not to mention Bob Casey in 2006) and I still get, without exaggeration, 6 McCain robo-calls a day. Maybe they're both just trying to piss the other guy's supporters off?

Well, our keeping the phone off the hook to keep the DSL going (argh... don't ask) has really cut down on robo calls.

I am not sure how other than the actual number who have voted and any potential exit voting. It has IMO provided those being afraid of losing their vote some security, at least in their own mind.

And where we are it is molasses time if there are any numbers since the poll workers are mostly 80+

Sounds likely to me. I've voted a mix of libertarian and GOP since we moved to Michigan in 2001 and we're getting better than a dozen robo-calls a day for Democratic candidates for state offices or progressive (read pro-choice) candidates for the MI Supreme Court. However, I don't think we've gotten even one call for either McCain or Obama. I think we've gotten one call for a GOP candidate and that one call was made by a real person that we know for a candidate that we know personally.
