Why early vote? Well...
- everyone is projecting turnout to be way up this year, so there might be huge lines on Election Day. Which is not only bad for you, but it means that other people who couldn't vote early for some reason might not be able to wait it out.
- It gives you more time to sort out problems if there are questions about your registration, as opposed to having to file a provisional ballot or something on Election Day.
- Seriously, it's just more convenient to vote sometime in the next two weeks (including Saturday and Sunday at most locations!) than to wait for Election Day in particular.
- Speaking for myself, I am soooo excited to vote for Barack Obama that I want to do it sooner rather than later. Screw delayed gratification!
