    I'm working the polls at the cemetery on the East side of town tomorrow. Next week I'm working the one West of town. Gotta make sure everyone gets to vote. Isn't that what the Dems do?

    I must have been under a rock or something.

    And the purpose of voting early is?????

    What happened to voting on election day like the majority of the people in the US?

    It seems to have worked in the past.

    Lots of reasons given.

    Ease congestion at the polls

    Encourage people to vote without the hassle of doing it before work, after or during lunch hour, when time is limited.

    Provide people traveling with satisfaction of going to polls, instead of mail in ballot.

    Mail in ballot for house bound,mot traveling.

    Seems like it is here to stay.

    I don't think voting should be allowed until after the debates.

    Sure, the braindead libtards have made up there collective minds at least 4 years ago, and I guess most diehard conservatives and/or Republicans have too.

    But the undecided voters need the debates to help them decide!

    I voted early, because if my plane goes down, my ballot is cast. I'm going to see my mother in Oregon for her 81st. b-day. Charlie

    Apparently he has missed the point of voting early. Vote early, and then go vote on election day. Seems reasenable. My mother comes first.. Charlie

    if you need more time to decide , then you have 2 more weeks. I sure hope those can decide wether or not to go vote in the first place.

    Why, because they are union?

    That seems sort of mean spirited, if you do.

    What have you got against union workers??

    You don't have to worry about your absentee ballot, it won't be counted unless the election is close enough for them to change the outcome. HMB

    Not true in Colorado, all votes are counted. That is the law here.

    Early voting started yesterday, mail ballots last.week.

    I'm sure they will all be counted, the question is when will they be counted and counted by who? HMB

    Military ballots are due by 11/18 and that is the last of the ballots recieved.

    Last day for recounts is sometime in Dec.

    Even though the public and the press loses interest the day after the election, the process goes well beyond 30 days after the polls close and it "ain't" over until the fat lady in the electorial college sings.

    I get what you are saying now but, I think over all Colorado runs a good election and keeps any fraud to a minimum. Not so sure for some other states.

    I am not worried about my vote not being counted here.

    Rick,

    I think you just made my point, the military ballots can arrive two weeks after the election results have been annouced. HMB
