    Gonna keep this real simple kids, we all need to get out and vote. I could spend a lot of time, get all political and try to convince you to vote for who I\'m voting for. Instead, I\'ll simply say this. GET OUT THERE AND VOTE. If you\'re an absentee, take the time to go INTO A POST OFFICE and get your envelope POST MARKED NOVEMBER 2ND!! This election could efect more than the next 4 years depending on who gets elected, and I have no doubt that the more VOTES that take place, the more likely it will be that the will of this country will be done.
    So please all, get out there and vote!!</span>


    <span style=\'color:red\'>I\'m aware this isn\'t a message about the PRIUS, but it is extremely important that all see this and are reminded to vote, right Danny, so I only ask that this post stay in the main forum where the majority of members can see it, until after election day. Then you all can delete it or move it to a new area or whatever, but please leave it where the majority can see it until the polls close. THANK YOU!

    With early voting in so many states now, it's beginning to be a very lame excuse to not go out and do the civic duty. I voted, and voted the second day of the early voting window.

    As a mod, I will not move this thread. However, people do need to remember that this is not a general discussion forum, and off topic threads will be moved to the correct forum if they are posted here. If one of the other mods, or Danny decides to move this thread, it will be their call.

    Thank you Wolfman. This year it's so very important everyone get out there, I was hoping you all would be more willing to leave it here for a couple days, especially if it was non-partisan, i.e. not promoting a certain candidate etc. I felt it best to not even mention who I'm voting for in this thread to keep the legitimacy of my non-partisan advertising of this thread, and thank you for the oppurtunity to leave this up.

    One thing to add, anyone that has missed thier registration date and CAN'T vote this year, be sure to remind others to vote, and go out today and register, so you can at least be all set next time!!

    Take care all, I know where I'll be on Nov 2nd (I already voted, so...) In front of one of the many 24/7 news stations. :)

    This year, at the end of the election, both sides will have real reason to have serious victory parties.

    This year is showing up to be the biggest voter turnout in our nation's history. Please, please, please vote! The polls open at 6am, close at 7pm - supposedly if you're in line by 7pm, you'll still get to vote. The lines WILL be long this year, a report today says they're 500k short of volunteers. Arrive before work - every workplace is required to allow time for you to vote.

    Regardless of your feelings on our current and past wars, this is the one of the many freedoms every soldier has faught, died, or been wounded for. If you do not register your voice to be heard, no one will hear it. Have a great Monday and I'll see you at the polls!! :)

    I won't move it, instead I'll make it a Global Announcement today & tomorrow until the polls close. Then we can move it to FHOP and have some OT discussion on the outcome.

    If, for some reason, you're still undecided and looking for information you can count on, Fact Check.org has put out a nice summary of the lies and evasions of both campaings... Pick the one you thought distorted the facts the least!!

    ...here come the (election) judge...

    About the Absentee postmark in the original post, local election laws may vary, but a Nov. 2 postmark does NOT guarantee your absentee vote will count in my county (DuPage). They must receive your absentee ballot by the close of the polls on that date. And you can't bring anyone's absentee ballot to a polling place; it must be mailed.

    Again, local laws vary and I am not trying to panic anyone. I'm just saying, while there's still time, if you have an absentee ballot and it hasn't gone in yet, you always have the right to show up in person and vote. Of course, it would help the paperwork (there's always paperwork) if you mentioned there was an absentee application for that person. But a vote in person is always allowed.

    Whether ID is required can really vary by location and situation. If you have voted before in the same place, you have the advantage of being known to your neighbors who work in the polling place. If you registered by mail and are voting for the first time, NO ONE has seen you in person and you will have to show some ID. Yes, you may have to prove where you live, what you look like, and what your signature looks like.

    Provisional voting in most states allows you to provide this identification AFTER you vote (but not long after - provisional ballots are set aside while issues are resolved).

    Sorry for going on, but all this really means is there are rules in place to make sure one person gets one vote. So please use your right.

    Vote early, vote often...seriously, get out and vote.

    With regard to provisional voting...if you are a first time voter, take a driver's license, work id with photo, utility bill, bank account statement with your address and the like....try to get a vote and not a provisional vote. If you are not a first timer at your polling place, no identification is needed - but take it along just in case.

    If you're voting in Souther Chester County PA tomorrow, look for my Black Prius with the Re-Defeat Bush sticker at various polling places...I'm working as one of the 10,000 DNC attorneys who will make sure that if you are registered, you will get to vote.
