    I like the line "say goodbye to your little friend." Not because I agree with sentiment, but because the reference to Scarface is hilarious.

    I agree that all absentee voting is, by it's very nature, early voting, but it does require additional paperwork over and above what is required to vote at a public polling place on an election day.

    I have a lot of those here too.

    The point is you need to be at least listed as a candidate and voted for and not just given the position.

    Not much of a line in rural Indiana. And being self employed I can vote anytime during the day while others are stuck at work.

    I have the luxury of going in to vote when the polls are less busy. Which will give me more time to drink.

    I have never missed one either but I vote absentee and always will.

    Screw going to polling booths anymore.
