Why wait until November, voting already underway

Washington (CNN) - It's only September 22, but in some places November's elections are already underway.

Statewide absentee or early voting in the midterms kicked off in Georgia, South Dakota and Vermont on Monday, with Iowa and Wyoming set to start Thursday.

Next week absentee or early voting begins in Nebraska and Ohio with about two-dozen other states allowing early voting in October.

    OK folks, time to change the diaper in DC and get rid of liberals and those demorats who voted for any of obama's spending programs like tarp and the obama health care "deformity" program. We need to get rid of botox pelosi as speaker and send reid home to Nevada, then in NOV 2012 send obama back to Illinois.

    What's frustrating to me is that if you vote early, more than likely your vote will never be counted. Unless an election is extremely close, early votes just sit there in a pile, waiting to be burned. I like to entertain the illusion that my vote, small as it is, matters a little bit.

    Obama is trying to renew hishealth care policy but what he is not telling you is that a non-profit organization they May Opt Out Of The Coverages and Not Cover Your Children, So the demoncrates liers are back at it again with the biggest rat at the helm of the ship, obama the lier.

    Yes but the absentee ballots always seem to be counted last, thus have minimal impact during the forecasts on election day.

    Where ever possible, vote absentee and study the backgrounds of all those whom you wish to vote for!

    This works out well for the older voters who are a high % of the likely voters in this country.
