Just drove by our local voting station, and for the first time there are plenty of parking spaces and no line. I guess a lot of the people who wanted to do early voting have done so...

So if you want the absolutely most convenient chance to vote, today's the day!

C'mon... you know you want to do it. If you know who you want, what are you waiting for?

I've seen the same here in North Florida. I can't speak for South Florida but here there was no line yesterday or today. It's a good day to vote

Yup! It's a soggy, grey day here in Virginia. When the weather's nice I'd rather spend my time outdoors, so a rainy day like this is my idea of the perfect day for voting.

Yup, no matter who you support the important thing is to actually get off the couch and go vote for that person.

I'm glad you asked! Here's an article you might find interesting:

NJ makes it easier to vote early _ and people do -- Newsday.com (http://www.newsday.com/news/local/wire/newjersey/ny-bc-nj--absenteevoting1st1024oct24,0,4479593.story - broken link)

This year's presidential election marks the first time voters don't have to give a reason _ such as illness or travel _ when they apply for an absentee ballot.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine on Friday went to Newark's Penn Station to promote absentee voting to the state's residents who work long days in Manhattan and are not sure they'll be able to get to the polls.

Yep, Corslime is hoping that Obama gets in. There's a good chance if O wins he'll take Corslime with him to the WH and that'll be a thank God to NJ.

No lines where I went either - what a relief! Last time I tried early voting (2004) I waited 2 or 3 hours, I can't even remember...it was loooooooooooong

There are no lines for early voting in Georgia today because you can only vote early Monday - Friday.
