Sorry you had a bad reaction to it this time.

Happy Birthday to you! While your Day may not have gone well, I hope your Year is wonderful!

So? It's not as if voters are being marched to the polls by gunpoint in order to vote early, lol. Early voting is great for people who made up their minds a long time ago as to who they are going to vote for. The debates are meaningless to them. In point of fact, the debates are geared toward the roughly 10% of voters who are still undecided. And those undecided voters are not going to be rushing to vote early before the debates are completed.

Hey, I love early voting! I don't believe the remaining debates will swing most of the undecided voters one way or the other. It will be interesting to see how many eligible voters actually make it to the polls.

Here 99% of voters do so at home. Ballots are mailed to voters. Fill it out, mail it back couldn't be easier.

If you're 65 or older, you can do that in TX also. I received my ballot today.

Absentee ballots where you pull up the County Clerk website or the Elections website for your county and request that an absentee ballot be sent to you by mail can be done in most or every state. Or you can call your request in.

It saves waiting in line if you've been voting on Election Day. Or if you find it difficult to stand, an absentee ballot solves the problem.

My absentee ballot arrived in the mail this week and I will mail it back with my votes indicated.

I've usually enjoyed getting in line at the polls and chatting with the other voters who were waiting to cast a ballot. For me, submitting an absentee ballot just wouldn't cut it.

My husband and I will be greeters at the polls, here, soon for early voting. We have an all day leadership class at Ollie on Nov. 8th., so will not be able to volunteer then. Early voting is expected to be heavy in the Asheville area. Some down ticket races are particularly contentious.

We enjoy participating.
