Another week for my location to open . I may actually do it for the first time ever. I"m not sure if its worth it,though. They say they aren't expecting as big a turnout as in '08, so waiting until election day may not be a problem. Made it in and out in < an hour then while waits of several hours were common for the "Earlies" .

Hopefully an huge turnout - early voting as well as on Election Day! Don't get discouraged - just do it.

I think that if you don't follow politics you should not go out and vote just to be voting. They have no idea who they are voting for except what hear say they hear or on how the candidate looks. We do not need a big turnout, we need a informed public voting and the others should stay home. It should not be a popular vote or how we feel or vote with emotion.
