In my opinion unless you have no other chance to vote, you should wait till the last day. In europe you can only vote on the day and IMO that is the best thing to do, for both sides.

What if something new comes out......you can't change your mind if you have voted.

But Europe is so SOCIALIST. Does that mean we should all become SOCIALISTS too?

I bet KARL MARX voted on Election Day only. Voting on election day makes you a MARXIST.

LOL, yes it's funny for bentlebee to tell other people what to do when she herself is not voting and will not have to stand in line.

IMO, this week is going to be nothing but midslinging and rehashing old arguments. You won't hear any game-changing ideas or announcements at this point in the election. If McCain had anything new to say, he'd be saying it. Because right now he's sounding pretty stale.

It's easy to research the issues online and learn about the things that matter to you. If you've done your research and made up your mind, why not go ahead and vote? You won't have to stand in a long line if you vote today, and you'll be one less person backing up the line next Tuesday.

Well, gee under this logic you should wait until the very last minute on Tuesday to vote, too. Because something might be announced Tuesday morning. Or maybe at 3 p.m. Or 5 p.m. Yup, better not go to vote until 10 minutes before the polls close, just in case!!!!

But wait--what if something is announced during those ten minutes! Oh no, better not vote at all!

Vote early so the Senator's other supporters won't have to wait as long on the 4th. Tsunami08

I voted already--absentee, since I will be out of town on election day. Otherwise, I'd be there on election day!

However, there is nothing that could come out that would make me change my mind of who I believe will best serve this country.

Two years (the approximate length of the present campaign) isn't long enough for you to figure out what you are for and what you are against? What can you possibly figure out in 9 days that you haven't been able to figure out in 20 months?

bentlebee needs to stay out of our elections given that she's not American and will not be voting here. It is apparent that she is worried that all these early voters are Democrats. LOL. We will keep voting early to ensure our vote is counted. Sorry bentlebee, go back to socialist Europe where you only get one day to vote.
