  •  I have decided to vote early so I can take voters (6+ / 0-)

    to the polls on November 4 or combat Republican dirty tricks like voter challenges due to caging and the like.

    I will vote absenttee.  Obama-Biden, of course.

    It is time to renounce fear and go out and kick some Republican Ass

      but in PA, it is absentee voting or showing up election day. It is really difficult for a few single mothers I know who do not have childcare after work. So I am voting during the day so when these people get home from work, I can babysit while they vote.

      It is also hard for those working 2-3 jobs to find time Election day to vote. I convinced a few to get absentee ballots when they expressed they worked from the times the polls open until they close or they have an hour free but live too far away from their job to vote on their lunch hour.

      It is hard for working students to attend class, get to their jobs and get to the polls. So some of them are voting absentee or are lining up at 7 am to be the first in there to vote and then get to class.
