    TV is saying that people are being turned away that have stood in line for hours. these same people can't afford to take off work to vote during the week. That's just what the TV is broadcasting.

    Watch the real news, watch fox, you will be shocked at whats really happening in the world. NBC showed people in N.J. cleaning up they even commented on how well they are all doing. Fox shows them dumpster diving, yelling at Bloomberg not to let them die, Pleading for help. You will not see anything on the mainstream new channels all they do is protect obama.

    in Florida, from what I readed
    They have early voting, absente voting, same day absente voting and regular voting.
    if somebody really knew they had to work tuesday they could have easily gotten it done.
    the story being referanced is one polling place in charge person at an early voting site on Saturday saw the long lines and said they would open up again for a few hours Sunday. But they dont do early voting on Sundays so the mayor or were ever this was ended up with wadded panties. Anyone "turned away" could easily mail in an absente ballot.
    This should be a non-issue except it is happening in the land of the hanging chad. We should send the U.N. or Jimmy Carter to Florida to monitor them as they seem to flock it to the max every time.

    I also saw on TV this one time that this girl had two boyfriends that each had two heads but they all went to dinner and ate pizza with Fabio.

    c'mon Murral.... at least get on Facebook, find someone you know in Florida, and ask them. Get some "on the ground" info from someone you trust. Quit listening to the lamestream media. Fox is nearly as bad, just swings the other way.

    If you wanna know what's up in rural Oklahoma.... I see an 80/20 split pro-Romney. For the most part, the 20% who are Pro Obama are a part of a minority group ( a couple are in education, and Obama is getting their vote because of the money they received in grants for incredibly impoverished areas. If someone asks me to name something Obama did that was positive, I always refer to the new clinic and the safe room at the school). Most have voted early, and polling places are not stacked up with long lines. OKC may be a different story. My friends there are reporting a 60/40 split.

    It is becoming much easier to vote, which in general is good. I don't remember what the voting laws were when I lived in Florida in the late '80's. I do know that here in Ohio we have been able to vote early until yesterday. We could get an absentee ballot. And the polls are open from 6:30 am to 7:00 pm. The only reason you can't vote in Ohio is you didn't plan ahead to vote which is your fault, no one elses.

    Barring the Lord stiking me down beofre tomorrow morning I will vote tomorrow.

    I live in Florida and it's a non-issue. People have been voting early with no problems and it's not even discussed by the local media. It's an issue generated by the liberal media.
