    Wednesday and I'm voting for Hillary. After tomorrow you guys can argue all you want.

    And..BTW..It was Ecuador that cut Assange's internet.

    Ecuador’s leftist government said WikiLeaks’ decision to publish documents impacting the U.S. election was entirely its own responsibility, and the country did not want to meddle in election processes or favor any candidate.

    “In that respect, Ecuador, exercising its sovereign right, has temporarily restricted access to part of its communications systems in its UK Embassy,” it added in a statement.

    Good for them.

    I already voted for

    Daffy Duck/Bugs Bunny.
    No I hadn't. Makes more sense to sit through the final debate and as long as possible in the event there are surprises to make me not regret a premature decision.

    We don't have early voting here. But my relatives in FL have all voted early. Yea, the retired military officers. Florida may yet go blue. :)

    Here is info about states with early voting. Hundreds of thousands of ballots have already been cast.

    No early voting in New York State. You can request an absentee ballot though if you're not going to be around on Election Day. I like to vote in person because, as I explained somewhere else, now that I have to drive 15 miles round trip to do it, I damn well like to collect a pizza on the way back... ;)

    I don't know if we have early voting and don't care because I always vote on election day. After work, go home, take a shower, grab a bite to eat and then go to the polls. It's only 1 mile from my house. :D

    No early voting in New York. Expecting a heavy turnout so I'm leaving work early in case lines are long.

    I get to vote next week. Still debating between Clinton and third party since I live in a safe R state so it won't matter too much.

    Colorado does mail-in ballots. My wife and I will vote as soon as we get them, and I'll take them to a drop off point that is about 4 miles from my house.

    From today's SigDig in FiveThirtyEight

    2,064,538 early votes cast so far - [U.S. Elections Project]

    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will face one another in their final presidential debate tonight. But the debate comes too late to change the minds of at least 2,064,538 confirmed voters. Early voting has been going on for some time now, and more than 2 million Americans have already cast ballots.

    Ordinarily I wouldn't like the idea of casting an early vote since I generally vote as an independent even though I'm a registered Democrat. This would be one of those years if it weren't for Donald Trump. But then as noted before, NY doesn't have early voting anyway.

    Never understood early voting. You never know what will happen between now and election day.

    I know that on Election Day I won't be able to vote, and I found out just a couple of days ago. Early voting allows me and many other to vote, and it reduces lines.

    Why can you not vote on election day but can through early? Are the registrations different?

    Ah, I misread what you wrote. I thought you meant you couldn't, as in weren't allowed to vote on election day. In that case, I can understand the argument for early voting.

    ...Unless you meant in pain as a result of the election. ;)
