I know we have an "Election Day", but since when have we had an "Election Week"?
Where have I been? Since when have we done early walk-in voting for presidential elections? I know we have absentee ballot voting so that people who will not be in town the day of elections can still have their vote counted, but how long have we been allowing people to walk-in to the voting precincts up to a week prior to the election day?
Here in my state, they have been touting that thousands a day are coming in for "Early Voting" since last Friday. Five days before the official election day!!
Is it just me or does this really increase the possibility of voting fraud?
Is it just me that thinks this is just wrong?
[Update:] I mean, what is the point of voting early to miss the crowds if you are going to stand in line for over 2 hours anyway? And, some of these people still have no idea what they are voting on or for.
[Update2:] I wonder who these people voted for?
"We took pictures in line and we took pictures of other people and got their e-mail address so we could mail them their pictures because we all thought we were making history and we wanted to be a part of that and remember it as much as possible," said voter Angela Vinson.

"I'm 63 years old and this is the first time, as far as voting, that I had to stand in line for almost three hours," said voter Bill Gray. "It was a good experience."
