    Post Presidential Election voting starts today in Florida

    Anyone Floridians voting early? Still deciding if I want to do it now or wait until election day.

    Why do Floridians get to vote earlier?
    Have your feelings been hurt by a random act of E-Thuggery? If so, call 1-800-Waaaaahmbulance, we're here 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, to take your call, you could be due a large monetary settlement, don't delay, call now.

    It's called being in the middle of a controversy.

    If you already know who you want to vote for I would and that way you dont have to deal with the lines...I doubt there will be anything to change your mind if it is already set.

    Yeah my mind is made up. I've done a lot of research regarding both candidates, but it's safe to say I know who I will vote for now.

    I've never heard of this either.. Our local poll isn't even setup yet. Who is this "early voting" thing for?

    Lots of states have early voting. Mail-in ballots are a common thing in AZ-- when you register you can opt to always have a ballot sent to you so you don't have to visit the polls. Here in pima county, they've already sent out almost 100,000 early ballots.

    No it's not absentee voting. You can walk right in and Vote. Its being done in 4 states. Florida, Colorado, Texas and I forget the 4th. Basically I believe it's being done in response to 2000 to ensure people get the opportunity to vote.

    We also have those too... early voting stations. You can walk in and fill out a ballot for your district. We have 7...

    oh ok. cool. In that case, I'm surprised my wife hasn't ordered me home early from work to go vote..

    I've only lived in FL for about a year, and im gonna lay out a theory here. Has anyone given the thought of how many immigrants/retired people live in FL? I beleive its early to make sure everyone can get instructions if needed instead of everyone rushing at the same time and getting confused on how to operate the voting machines/cards.
