I applaud you all for voting. My original intent of this thread, however, was the lack of "leaks" regarding the early voting. Think about it. If
a swing state has early voting and the results are leaked that either candidate has a majority of votes, isn't there a chance that many people will
think there vote doesn't count?
The only reason I bring this up is because on the west coast, we have been going through this for years. Many times the Presidential Election has
been decided before the polls close here on the west coast. Many important school levys have failed because while over 50% voted in favor of the
levy, it was not a supermajority (a stupid law requiring a certain percentage of registered voters to cast ballots for a measure to pass). When the
Presidential Election is over before our polls are closed, many people decide what's the point of voting. Of course, they don't realize that voting
for their Representative or Senator is as or more important than voting for the President. But that is a topic for another thread.
