    Sorry to hear that. Wasn't aware you had health issues.

    Am not really seeing much difference between "absentee" and early voting in Missouri.

    In theory, in order to vote "absentee," you have to have some sort of excuse/reason why you aren't able to vote on Election Day. In practice, I don't know that there is much difference.

    If polls aren't open to the voting public prior to election day, then it's not early voting.

    Right - I get that. But people can go vote absentee at specified places in person. So my comment to Prag was acknowledging that there's not much of a practical difference between the two.

    In Illinois, Absentee voting is a postal/mail thing. They mail you the ballot. You fill it out and then mail it back. Very convenient.

    But in "Northeast Urban" Illinois there are not uncommon cases of absentee ballots being cast for folks who died years ago.

    You like standing in line?

    And that's still an option here (voting absentee by mail). But now they've gone to this weird hybrid thing which, in my observation, is pretty close to "early voting."

    A lot of people early voting have to stand in line, as well. My sister waited an hour and 45 minutes to vote in Texas on the second day of early voting.

    Snikitz it is pretty amazing that even with challenges you voted no matter how you voted. So many people don't vote for lesser reasons. I'd like to think I'd do the same. Thanks.
