This past Thursday, I drove down to the county I am registered in to do my civic duty and vote in the 2008 presidential election. Much to my surprise, there were about 4o people who had the same idea as I did. As reported in the news, over 825,000 voters have cast absentee ballots.
Here is my question. When are these votes actually tallied? In the 2004 election, we learned that the Florida absentee ballots were not tallied until weeks after the election. We all know how that election turned out.
Don't forget to vote and if you live in a state that allows early voting, do it! Do it NOW.
