The original insinuation was that voters on election day at the polls would not have any impact, it's "too late"
It has become conventional wisdom that early voting pretty much decides an election, and in many cases, that is true, e.g., if you have a large lead in early voting, it will probably be difficult for an opponent to overcome. But that isn't always the case, as we saw last night in some state house races.
On a side note, final turnout was around 1.3 million I think, which is a nice surprise. Early voting represented 48% of that.
