    New Law Eases Way for Early Balloting in Key Swing State
    By AMY MERRICK

    CLEVELAND -- With the credit crisis roiling Washington, Wall Street and the presidential campaign, voters in the key battleground state of Ohio cast their first ballots amid a controversy over the state's election procedures.

    Hundreds of thousands of residents -- including vanloads of homeless voters shuttled to polling places by advocacy groups -- are expected to cast ballots before Election Day. This year, Ohio voters can cast an absentee ballot without having to cite a specific reason for voting early, which had limited the practice in past presidential elections. More than 30 states now allow early in-person voting without requiring voters to give a reason.In Ohio, the recent change in the early-voting law has moved up the timetable for intense campaigning. Twenty electoral votes are in play in the state, and the campaigns of both Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Barack Obama are encouraging their supporters to vote as soon as possible.

    Residents are being bombarded by campaign television ads, and Republican officials are using mailings and phone calls to encourage supporters to vote early.

    Sen. Obama's campaign brought singer John Legend to college campuses Monday for early-voting rallies. In Franklin County, which includes Columbus, volunteers for Sen. Obama pitched tents and waited all night outside the polling place so they could be among the first to vote.

    Absentees will favor Obama decidedly this year.

    Thank you ACORN and thank you Obama for resisting the Military Voting Protection Act.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Obama's campaign organizes so well these kind of things are second nature to them. Remember all the caucus victories?

    Yes .. they 'organize' so well .. they pull homeless drunken pukes off the streets and drag them in
    - give them a cup of coffee in exchange for a vote for Obama.

    WE ARE SO SCREWED!!

    Great 'organization'. :mad:
    It's disgusting.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Your conspiracy theories are getting lame...

    Obama will probably win, and he could very well do so in a landslide. The margin in both the popular vote and electoral college could render all of your lunatic fringe moonbat theories completely irrelevant, like what if Obama win by 5% in the popular vote and by 100 E.V.'s?

    No amount of voter fraud could skew the number that much, what will you say then?

    Just talked with a woman that's on the Obama legal team in IN

    She said during the primaries in Indiana, some guy walked in who looked like he had been drinking all day, and said "is this where I vote for Obama?"

    Well, I'll probably be drinking a lot on election day, myself.

    Mine will not be celebratory, no matter WHO wins.
