Early Voting, Enthusiasm, and Polls
By now most voters or even passing bodies have heard of all the data that this November election in going to bring to the table. Not only the data, but the actual issues that bring certain bills to life. This year, most states have opened voting up early for the public and are actually taking in votes through mail early as well. This seems like a skip in the long voting line, but also helps those who may not be capable getting out November 2nd the right to vote.
Since data has been accumulating early many officials have a tighter feel for each ballot initiative and election vote that comes in. Early trends are starting to set in for almost each voter alike. Maybe one could now say that “early voting” is the new “exit voting” that differs so much from just less than a decade ago. Spawning analysis and predictions are showing many in favor of controversial laws. But, what does it say about who’s getting voted in state by state? If it says anything, it may be another 2006 early election win for the democratic party.
So far early voting has been allowed in 17 states around the U.S. This popular trend is growing, but the real day for voting is only a couple days away. If anything, this was allowed to get those people who blow off the elections and ballots that fall on November 2nd. But, if that’s the case it really doesn’t seem to be working as well as what it could be.
The enthusiasm over voting this year will be high. On the the top of the ballot list is Illegal Immigration, controversial marijuana laws, and the all to familiar taxes that coincide with each and every vote casted. Maybe it will all come down to how many registered voters there are for each political party. But, if this is true maybe every American should really “get out and vote.”
