    done any campaigning for Franken? Those early voting numbers show a lot of ticket splitting. We need to get that shut down for Franken to win.

      Except for survey calling, no one can know how the early voting goes.  We don't have party registration at all -- all you can guess from is the precinct and its tendency.  

      Absentee Ballots -- by mail or early voting, all are in envelopes, and about noon in the precinct they get checked off, removed from envelopes, and run through the scanner -- we don't even know how the Absentee ballot went once they are merged into their local precincts.  

      We are letting the military and Americans Abroad to vote by internet this year.  Their ballots will print out in St. Paul, and be sent to the precincts for counting.  

      Also remember -- we have same day registration at the polls.  If you have ID and/or a person to vouch for your residence, you can go to the polls, register and vote on election day.  No such thing as a provisional ballot.  Every ballot voted gets counted. Secretary of State is saying maybe 80% of the voters will vote Tuesday.  Could be even higher.

        one of the reason I love living in Minnesota, it is so easy to vote. I have never experienced a long line at the Polling Place. No confusion on the ballot, none of this other stuff I see on TV.

      have rallied for Franken. Hillary did a good ad, too.

      Barack needs to do an ad for Franken.  He could say something like "I need the help of a Senator like Al Franken in order to bring about the change you want!"  For some reason, people are not making the connections.

      •  Yes! (0+ / 0-)

        I would love to see Obama supporting Franken.  It could very well mean the difference in this race.   And I don't see the downside of it.
