Early Absentee Voting in Florida and California? Is this True?

I've had my CA absentee

I've had my CA absentee ballot for over a week now. But I read somewhere that absentee ballots could get backlogged and might not get counted by election night. So I might vote at the polls.

Are you making

copies of your absentee ballot as proof just in case?

Arizona, too.

It is a huge thing here. I don't know the stats, but I want to say up to 1/3 of elligible voters do it. It just started.....

Florida

Florida has early voting. Actually, Floridians started voting 2 weeks before the elections. Because Florida is a winner take all state, the early votes are not counted unless it is a close race, they say. Now, I do believe, when I go to vote on Tuesday, the supervisor of elections may have counted the votes anyway.

Plus Florida Governor Charlie Crist just came out and endorsed John McCain. Floridians are considered fickle sometimes, however, they will not let the governor influence their decision, in most cases: Lot of rebels and free thinking people.

California has been Voting Since January 8th!!!

Yes, Permanent Absentee Voters received their ballots in the mail around January 8th/9th 2008, 28 days before the National Primary Day.

These permanent absentee voters will make up over 40% of the total votes in the Golden State.

Super Tuesday voting has been going on for over two weeks now!!

Monday, January 28th is the DAY that the largest bloc of Absentee Votes will be mailed to the Registrar of Voters in each county.

This is the weekend to canvas in California and I am sure in other states as well that vote on February 5th !! Canvas like demons on Sunday!!!

That's right!

That's right! I've been canvassing here in Cali and found many voters who have already mailed in. Also, more than one precinct I know for certain was not all absentee last election and now they are.

it's for a reason

I'm in Florida. There was a 1 week period where you could vote early. This was for provisional and absentee ballots so that they are assured to get to the elections officials in time to be added in the main count.

However, you could also just walk in and vote as a regular voter if you wanted to as well in case you were going to be out of town, etc... or just get it out of the way ahead of time.

I was not going to participate in that because I want to video tape the exit polls and be there when the doors open. This is a regular process nothing to be concerned about.

With that said, I've also seen the BBV stuff and in no way want my ballot counted/discounted early. Early voting should only be used when absolutely necessary in my opinion.

Me,too

I mailed in my ballot last week.

OMG...

You CANNOT VOTE ANY EARLY BALLOTS FOR PAUL!

You MUST vote for him on the day of the primaries or caucuses.

Has no one been to blackboxvoting.com? This is THE best way to cheat in an election....since most early ballots are never used in the final count...or mysteriously disappear.

California

I voted for RP in California nearly three weeks ago via absentee.

My mother-in-law

voted already (for RP).

I voted for Paul 2 weeks ago in Florida

Absentee..

With rampant voting disputes/recounts going on...

..that is my concern. I hope at this early those "spineless" entities don't tamper our gains.

are you calling us 'spineless?'

please do a more dilligent job of posting why one should not vote absentee. There are various accounts of voter fraud,whys,whens,etc. with zero consistency on what 'not' to do. Rather than spineless,I felt I was on the ball with getting the vote in early. Whatever-no need to act like that towards fellow RP supporters with good intentions. Cast not judgement,sport,unless you know the whole story.

You misunderstood my post. I was not referring to any of us...

..it's those "spineless" entities who MANIPULATES THE COUNTING in favor of those handpicked candidates we all oppose....HELLO!

"In circuit motorsport, a driver has..."Paul position" when he or she starts a race at the front of the grid."

Understand your concern

But some of us live overseas, what would you like us to do swim to Florida??
