  • We have it here in Florida. Given the problems that Florida has had in the past with voting, we have decided not to vote until the day of to try to prevent any miscounting of our family's votes. Besides, the early voting lines are an hour long and our voting location the day of is usually very quick.

  • I didn't know before but heard it on the news last night- your employer has to give you time off to vote.
    But nowadays-with jobs being as hard to come by -that some people would be afraid to ask for the time off.
    I think all the states should have early voting. It's so important to get out and vote.

  • Evansmom-I'm so glad that we have early voting and I voted with my 25 yr' old the 1st day. It was close to home and no line yet.
    Diane- I've seen on the news alot about Florida and their early voting. Hopefully you'll be their next time.
    Kim- I wish you had early voting- maybe next time you can do a mail-in ballot? Worth a try.
    I don't know what people do who don't have early voting and can't get off work?

  • Yes-Georgia. However, wait times have been up to 8 hours...can you believe that!!! There is definitely going to be record turnout this year.

  • We do - Florida. My husband voted a few days ago. Alas, I'm not eligible as I'm not yet a citizen. Hopefully next time... But I think it's a terrific idea.
