I was going to ask if I could celebrate voting early and often -- I am in Ohio after all.

I got my absentee ballot yesterday. To be honest, I don't even remember why I had at one point signed up for absentee ballot, but I've been getting them ever since.

This time, however, I'm going to vote in person. I contacted the appropriate folks to ask if that would cause an issue, and they said it shouldn't be a problem, but I filled out a form and faxed it in, just in case.

Also, they said that next year Washington state was going to be a solely vote-by-mail state, which I don't think I'd heard of before. I wonder why, and I wonder if other states do that?

Well, I'm not Carek (shocking, I know), but if I were voting by mail, I'd probably have to "work on it" as well, since I am woefully ignorant of the local races and initiatives. I just got my state voters' pamphlet in the mail as well, and I want to read through it before just ranomly filling in circles for the local stuff.

But yeah, the presidential part of it - that's a no-brainer.

I'd definitely vote early, but this will be my first time voting, and I really want to cast my ballot for Obama in person.

I live in Wash.State also and I got my mail-in ballot and plan on mailing it out on MONDAY too!!

Oregon is a vote by mail state, I think they have been for a few years now.

I went canvassing today for Obama door to door in the beautiful fall weather and volunteered a few more hours in at the Bellevue Wash. Headquaters for Obama making up canvassing packets for people! I am also going to be waving signs on street corners next week and the during the days up to Nov.4th!
We need to get out the vote and not take anything for granted during this election of our lives!!
Come on everybody, let's take our country back!
Hope you all are volunterring out there too!! It's fun!

YES WE CAN

It took me about an hour to fill mine out, sitting around a table at work with colleagues who are all of similar thinking politically. We talked about all the local issues - amendments to the state constitution, bond issues, tax questions, local judges up for re-election - and had to get on the Internet and do some research. Had I gone on election day and voted in person, I would have left more than half of it blank because I wasn't informed. This is the main reason why I always vote by absentee ballot (although I guess I could have seen a sample ballot ahead of time and done the reasearch but I still would have had to take a cheat sheet with me to the polls to fill it out right). I also hand-delivered my absentee ballot so as not to risk it getting lost or delayed in the mail - a big problem in this state.

I have an hour between when the polls open and when I have to be at work. This being Northern Virginia & heavily enthusiastic Obama country, I'm sure I run the risk of being late for work. But I reeeeeeeally want to do this one in person! I've heard that in my county, you can vote early AND in person at the local courthouse as long as you're not going to be in the district for most of Election Day. I'm looking into doing that....
