    OH:

    Absentee and early vote activity is over 17 percent higher in counties McCain won than counties Obama won, compared to 2008.

    Turnout is higher in counties and media markets McCain carried in ’08 than in counties and markets Obama carried.

    There are 34 counties in Ohio that John McCain won where absentee and early vote turnout is over 120 percent of 2008. There are only 9 counties where Obama won four years ago where this is the case.

    @HotlineJosh: Overall, early vote turnout OH up 2.44% in state. Down -4.1% in Obama/Kerry counties; up 14.39% in Bush/McCain counties.

    GOP county turnout up

    · Plain Dealer: Geauga election chief predicts 80 percent voter turnout today

    · Geauga County early vote was 125% more than 2008 early vote

    · McCain won Geauga County with 57% and Bush got 60% in ‘04

    Dem county turnout down

    · WOUB: Athens County Election Officials: Morning Voter Turn Out Low

    · Athens County early vote was 10% less than 2008 early vote

    · Obama won Athens County with 67%

    FL:

    Bay County, FL – which went 71 – 28 for GW Bush in ‘04 – is adding staff at voting locations because of overwhelming turnout.

    Hialeah (FL), highest % Cubans & Cuban-Americans in America & regarded as “most GOP” b/c of vote history, reports lines around the block.

    - 2 hour lines reported in Walton County, a county that voted 73.2% for George W. Bush in 2004 (21 points above the statewide percentage for Bush).

    - Hour-plus lines reported in Escambia County, a county that voted 65.3% for George W. Bush in 2004.

    - Long lines and Republicans outvoting Democrats by nearly two to one in traditional bellwether county Pasco (of which Jeb Bush famously said “as goes Pasco, as goes Florida” which George W. Bush won’t by 10 points in 2004.)

    - Shorter wait times reported in Miami-Dade County – especially in Democratic precincts. Democrats usually win Miami-Dade by 10 pts or more. (Obama won it by 16 points in 2008.)

    - LONG line is of Precinct 69 in Ft. Myers (Lee County). Breakdown of registered voters in that area is below: R: 1,314 D: 531

    The crackhead Obama voters didn't want to stand in line today.
