Early voting this weeked?
  • internet tourettes November 2, 2012 - 1:29 pm #55247 Reply

    Due to a work scheduling issue I might have trouble making it to the polls on tuesday (I like voting in person…). Does anyone know if I could cast my vote this weekend and if so where?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    There are people outside the EFC metro every afternoon trying to get people to vote early, and I'm sure they're doing it in other places as well -

    You can't just show up can you? I thought you had to register to early/absentee vote and there was a deadline for it a bit ago.

    You can just show up with ID and voter card. Another conservative discouraging voting.

    Right – it's too late to register to vote, period. Doesn't matter if it's early, absentee or regular. The deadline was Oct 15.

    You also have to send in a request to absentee vote. I did it for the last election for the board, and they mailed me a ballot. I dont' think just showing up was an option, but it was a much smaller election.

    PS: Will there be signs up in Yiddish so I can know what to do?Oh I forgot, nobody's pandering to that group. But apparently people who speak spanish who can leagally vote in the US for some reason are having a harder time learning english so that must explain why i see spanish all over the polling stations and no other language.

    But if you are registered, you can “just show up”.  I did so about 2 weeks ago.

    Yes, you have to be registered to vote, but you don't have to do anything else to vote by absentee ballot in person except to show up at one of the in person absentee voting locations during open hours.

     

    It's a nice option to have. Last presidential election I scheduled a trip out of the country after the mail in deadline had passed. I was returning after election day so this allowed me to cast my vote.

    I voted early, in person. It is not the same thing as voting absentee, steve.

     

    And yes, of course, people have to be registered to vote, regardless.

     

    And I'm sure that if you need a Yiddish translator to assist you, you can request one. wouldn't want anything “illeagal” going on.

    How can I be expected to do that without all the signs? It's almost like the officials expect yiddish speakers to know enough english to figure out how to vote, unlike spanish speakers.
