  •  PA has just about zero (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    pre-election votes cast, as I understate it, they even discourage absentee for a reason (requiring notarization?). So, it's a state that has a fair amount of Republican theoretical possibly, without banked Dem votes.

    •  No notarization required; absentee (0+ / 0-)

      ballots accepted only for physical disability or absence from the state on Election day.

      •  Maybe it's New York? (0+ / 0-)

        I could swear there was a state that does require that the returned ballot signature form (not the application itself) be notarized.

        •  I just checked- Pa. does require (0+ / 0-)

          a notarization but only for "emergency" ballot applications- that is, those applications that are not received by the normal deadline and are the result of an unexpected emergency situation.

      •  Right, but that's quite restrictive (0+ / 0-)

        PA has no "no excuse" early voting.  The absentee ballots are relatively few and usually favor the Republicans.

        If I understand it correctly, the governor has just ordered an extension in the time for requesting an absentee ballot.  This may be irrelevant, but PA remains on my radar screen as a state where Sandy might make a difference.

        Hope for early recovery and unimpeded voting!
