WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - With memories of 2000 and the state's bitter fight over ballots still fresh, Floridians began casting votes Monday and within an hour problems cropped up.
In Palm Beach County, the center of the madness during the recount four years ago, a Democratic state legislator said she wasn't given a complete absentee ballot when she asked to opt for paper instead of the electronic touch-screen machines. And in Orange County, the touch-screen system briefly crashed, paralyzing voting in Orlando and its immediate suburbs.

I don't understand the purpose behind early voting. Is it intended to make it more convenient for the voters?

Our teacher asked the question that does a bigger turnout make it a better election? If voter turn out is 65% this year is that better? and whats the minimum turn out we should see before its a huge problem? Its close to 50% now... and decreasing.
I want to vote for John Kerry but I live in Texas... Is my vote gonna really count?
