    What does everyone thing about early voting that has made such a splash
    in the news?

    Poll coming...

    Personally, I'd never vote early as you never know what's going to popup last minute that might affect your vote.

    The Great O's recently found out stance on coal and electric prices are a good example I think. I wonder how many people might have changed their vote if the
    MSM had done it's job and brought this up when it should have...

    I don't like it for the exact reasons you showed.

    I can see the convenience factor for voting early, but I prefer to show up on election day and cast my ballot.

    I've never had to spend much time voting either, despite the media horror stories. No long lines of any kind.

    I voted early, by mail.
    NOTHING could have happened that would have made me wish I voted for Hussien.

    And I think the folks who voted early for Hussien, felt the same way about him.

    I don't vote early. It just feels wrong. I will go first thing in the morning.

    Ditto. Besides I like the fun of scoping out those in line. I'm planning to complain about anyone with a big Obama button or t-shirt on. They keep saying any campaign stuff has to be removed in the polling place. This could be fun. :D

    Of course, I'd never vote for Obama anyway.

    My personal opinion is it gives those voting on the extra ACORN ballots more time for multiple votes.

    I also think it is unconstitutional.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Plus it gives time for the ACORN types to spit out their "Republican suppression" of votes. Baracki has been way too smug about this election. He knows that the cheaters have already voted in droves. :mad:

    Its not in the Constitution! Believe it or not there is no right to vote for POTUS!

    Most Americans believe that the "legal right to vote" in our democracy is explicit (not just implicit) in our Constitution and laws. However, our Constitution only provides explicitly for non-discrimination in voting on the basis of race, sex, and age in the 15th, 19th and 26th Amendments respectively.

    Even though the "vote of the people" is perceived as supreme in our democracy - because voting rights are protective of all other rights - Justice Scalia in Bush v. Gore constantly reminded Al Gore's lawyers that there is no explicit or fundamental right to suffrage in the Constitution. The Supreme Court majority concluded: "the individual citizen has no federal constitutional right to vote for electors for the President of the United States." (Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98, 104 (2000))
