Where are these votes held until election day? Are they tallied? I prefer everybody voting on the same day.

Gee, according to the NY Tines it was the Democrats who were supposed to lead in enthusiasm.

How do they know which ballot is R and which is D?
Both my husband vote absentee, seems like we are never home on election day, the ballots are identical in color and shape, I am registered as R, he as DTS. There are no identifying marks on the front envelope or in the inside envelope.

What does AA stand for? You said it is at 9.8 percent right now.

GOP in NC promoted absentee ballots by phone and mailings. It looks like that has paid off. Helping get the “hot to” info to those who need an absentee ballots.

Every media poll I looked at today has Obama up in North Carolina by 2 to 5 points. But your numbers are real while the poll numbers are hypothetical.

I don't know what the historical trends have been in N.C. but nationally the Over-60 voters lean Democrat. The above numbers would indicate they are leaning Republican.

There's a couple of assumptions here...

First - That the Dems are voting for a straight Dem ticket.

Second....That Repub votes won't wind up in a dumpster.

There is great potential for cheating in this early voting.

Interesting....
At a recent Pubbie mtg in our county, we were told that on election day in 2008, McLame won the state of VA...what put Obummer over the top was the absentee votes...hmmmm!
And AA is for African American...not the US Bond Rating! Obummer got us down graded to -AA...in case that confused!

Assuming the AA vote is going Democrat; that means roughly 30% of the Dem vote, based on this sample, is AA. Of course, not ALL AA's are voting Democrat...there are a few exceptions. On the other hand; would Democrats AA's be motivated to vote absentee?

Just fun with numbers...

Well, we know that these numbers CAN"T be right, because the MSM polls predict Dems voting in a record number this year, and Repub turn out depressed below any historical average.

This is bad new for Dems since election day Rep voters tend to show up while Dem voters do not. The whole reason the Dems pushed this early voting scheme was to give their lazy ass voters more time to vote.
