    Early voting closes in many states at close-of-business today.

    Gallup reports:

    My question is:

    Are political aficionados like us MORE or LESS likely to vote early?

    Never have. I either drop by the polling place before or after work on election day.

    No, I haven't voted yet. I will do that on Tuesday - election day. I think unless you are in the military and away on a deployment or something you shouldn't be able to vote early. I think there is too much opportunity for voter fraud by allowing early voting.

    I vote by absentee, naturally... registered in CA. For the first time ever, I voted straight 'R' across the board. Just because I felt like it. LMAO.

    This was a poll question on Special Report a couple of days ago. I was surprised to see that just over 50% of those who participated, had already voted. I think it was 49% who said they would vote on November 2.

    I will be voting on Tuesday.

    In Oregon we vote by mail. Because this is a dark blue state, I wait until just days before an election to mail my ballot. I feel this decreases the chance of it being altered or tossed by unscrupulous people who might open and read it. I mailed it yesterday.

    I voted a week or so ago and made it official.
    100% of qualified USMB voters voted against Rand Paul.
