  •  Are Early Voting Sites Much Fewer Than Election (12+ / 0-)

    day sites? That's how it is in Ohio.

    I voted the week before the storm so while ours in our blue and minority-rich urban area was busy, there were no lines out the door. It may be different today.

    The other thing about Ohio is that at least in our blue area many precincts were moved or eliminated, which will create a great deal of confusion on Tuesday.

      We have 5-10 early voting sites in Palm Beach County, compared to 1,000 individual districts.  

      And the other catch to early voting is that they need to print a new ballot for every voter, depending on your precinct (because the local races are different).

      In 2008 I waited 2 hours to vote early, and that was when we had a 14-day window.

      This year I'm voting on Election Day, and expect almost no line.  But some people don't have that luxury.

      Fewer early voting locations than on election day. In the southern part of Palm Beach County there are a handful of early voting locations... of course on election day there are many smaller precincts to dilute the voter count.
