    I'm very amazed at the time that people are having to spend in line. I'm hoping that it's only because there aren't as many early-voting booths & locations available as there will be on Nov. 4.
    It s not fair for poor people to lose one full day of work on their paycheck.

    It's called an absentee ballot Wes. Some should try it.

    Its a pretty bad in democracy when an answer to an 8 hour line for voting is you should have used an absentee ballot.

    Hi real world ,

    You may vote by absentee ballot if you:

    1-will be absent from your city or town on election day, and/or
    2-have a physical disability that prevents your voting at the polling place, and/or
    3-cannot vote at the polls due to religious beliefs.


    So what you are saying is ILLEGAL in my state , and many other states.
