Early voting maybe significant enough in some places that it replaces in importance the get out the vote op on nov4th – well, maybe thats going too far. But it certainly is going to make a difference if you can get a large portion of voters to the polls before election day – if anything its a measure of enthusiasm. Turn outs a good thing for our country either way and it should limit the stress on polling places on november 4th – I feel sorry for places like Pennsylvania that won’t have early voting this cycle, hope the weather is alright on the 4th.
