Palin will return to Alaska to vote

Palin will return to Alaska on Election Day.

STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Sarah Palin will return to her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska to vote on Election Day, a campaign adviser tells CNN.

Palin plans to leave the campaign trail next Monday night to fly to Anchorage, and will then drive to Wasilla to cast her vote before returning to the lower 48 to spend election night with John McCain in Phoenix.

“Home is where Gov. Palin launched her career in public service and it's fitting that she return to Alaska to vote,” the adviser said. “She's looking forward to traveling to Wasilla to cast her ballot.”

As of ten days ago, Palin was unsure where she would be on November 4.

“We don't know what the plan will be yet on there,” she told reporters on her campaign plane earlier this month. “If I'm not there physically we will be applying for that absentee ballot and we'll do the early voting there. Yeah. And we'll do it fairly.”

    I think Palin should stay in Alaska after she votes. I believe that she will be keping her day job as Governor of Alaska. It was good while it lasted! Thank but no thanks! she is much too negative, much too dumb.

    Gee too bad her $600M highway isn't built. yet.. she could get home faster.

    Let's hope we never hear of her again after next Tuesday.... What a loser.

    Maybe she can vote to re-elect Ted Stevens, seeing as Sen Stevens can no longer vote for himself as a convicted felon.

    She should vote in all states she visits, just like the Obama campaign workers.

    Please Palin do us all a favor and stay in Alaska. I hope she get's impeached for abuse of power because Palin and her dog racing husband destroyed Monegan's life.

    I bet she will vote for Obama; just to make sure McCain doesnt win, which makes her chances for 2012 a whole lot better.

    Call me a cynic.

    So what?

    I hope she stays there. I have heard they are not all that keen on her three either. What a huge mistake for McCain to choose someone as inexperienced as she was. He rallied his base, but lost all others. Really poor planning. And that is another reason he is not ready to lead.

    What is up with this woman's speech patterns? She is very hard to understand most times.

    “We don't know what the plan will be yet on there, If I'm not there physically we will be applying for that absentee ballot and we'll do the early voting there. Yeah. And we'll do it fairly."

    Is she implying that it is not 'fair' elsewhere? and if so, where?

    you're spending how much to fly to Alaska to vote and then back to the lower 48. What a waste of donation/taxpayer money. Maybe an absentee ballot would be a good idea. Good start Palin.Your vote won't matter. Its a useless cause.

    She should stay there. And Alaska voters should question if the price of having her antagonistic, unethical and self-serving politics and the image that she has cast upon the state and the lost tourism income which will result were really worth the rebate check. I don't think Alaska residents will really want her to be the spokesperson for their great state.

    I believe that Alaska is a beautiful state that people from the US and around the globe should want to visit and experience. Sarah Palin is an ugly and predjudiced face for that great state. How many tourists who may have planned and dreamed to see the glaciers, mountains and pristine wilderness parks have been told that they are not true Americans and will not feel welcome in Alaska.

    Alaska, please tell us she was wrong and that Alaskan's want all Americans to feel safe and welcome in your state.

    Go McCain-Palin. You'll win come Nov 4th. I know it.

    In 2012, without the albatross of McCain hanging around her neck, Sarah Palin will run for President and win. Obama's move towards socialism and then communism will be rejected by the American people and he will either be impeached or not re-elected.

    I bet she votes Obama, she doesn't want this overwhelming position responsibility.
