I'm surprised with all of the early voting there haven't been "leaks" regarding the early numbers. It seems like every story or event has insiders that decide it is important to leak information.

Since polls are based upon only hundreds or a thousand people, wouldn't it be possible to extrapolate the "final decision" for certain states? From what I have heard, there are many people taking advantage of the early voting.

I don't see why people can't wait until Super Tuesday.

I can understand casting your ballot by mail in the event that a person will be out of town, in the hospital or any other emergency that may arise, but to have polls open to the general public three weeks before the actual date that is recognized as Election Day is not right IMO.

Well I did my early voting yesterday and I have a wonderful experience, and the people at the voting place made sure that we were the people we said we were, I did not have to wait on line and that was great.

I did an absentee ballot today.
It was the only way there was a paper verifiable vote. Otherwise it was all inside the machine.

Whooo, got my voting done.
Now i get to just be a spectator.
For three days I have no pressure. I've voted. My candidate may win.

If the opposition candidate wins, I will have to start making new plans.

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.
