    It is a sin to not have early voting. And it needs to be streamlined.

    In Wisconsin, we have "early voting" but all it really is is absentee ballots without needing an excuse. The ballots are kept at city hall and then hauled to each voting place to be run through the optical scanners after the polls close on election day. It would be much smarter to just run them through the scanners when people submit their early voting ballot.

      And you want early voting, NOW is the time to ask your state legislators to do it.  In most states, the schedule is decided in the time between elections and swearing in, which means now.

      If you don't do it now, there's a good chance your legislator won't be able to fit it into his/her schedule for '09.
