Obama leads 2-1 in early voting in Ohio.
That's right, 60% to 30%.

Which led me to a fantasy of Mitt getting his ass beat so bad, he CRIES. And teabillies flipping out all over the country.  :lulz:

I was thinking of voting early myslef, since we have those Romney machines here, but in Texas you can only do that if:
■You will be away from your county on Election Day and during early voting;
■You are sick or disabled;
■You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
■You are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.

Because Texas sucks festered javalina dick.

Oh, well. Hopefully I'll see a UN observer at my polling place, since my area is predominantly Mexican.

Don't early voters generally skew very liberal anyway, though?

Only because those votes are more likely to he counted.

That's why I wanted to vote early.

It does look a little skewed to the dems...except for the dick state, of course.

Early voting in swing states
 •Virginia: Statewide, early voting is up 9.4% compared to 2008 - but turnout in counties that went to Obama is down. (Virginia does not have early voting stations, and requires an excuse to cast an absentee ballot.)
 •Nevada: Obama has 61% of the early vote, Romney leads 51% among those who have yet to vote
 •Ohio: Obama leads 2-1 among early voters, with 14% of voters (based on 2008 totals) casting an early ballot
 •Florida: 40% of early voters so far have been Democrats, 45% have been Republican, 15% independent or from other parties. In 2008, early voters were 40% Democratic, 41% Republican and 19% independent or from other parties.

Thanks for the reminder, I'll vote today.

Yes, and that's how we ended up with Governor Asshat here in Maine.  Because the early voters were stupid assholes who didn't wake up in time to recognize their votes for the Democrat were actually votes assuring Lepage would win.  Numbnuts!
