I Voted

I've voted! Nevada has early voting and I'm so glad they do. No having to get up extra early on voting day to get to the polls. Just go to your local mall or grocery store and vote. The early polls opened yesterday and will remain open until October 31. Sadly for poll workers, Oct. 31 in Nevada is a state holiday and while the rest of us have the day off, the polls remain open. But it's all for a good cause and I salute all those workers.

And if all goes well I just voted for the next President of the United States. Come November 4, we'll find out if I was right. Or left.

So does anyone in NV vote on Election Tuesday? Also, do you all get higher turnout because you have a longer window of opportunity?

I think in the last election about 1/2 of the people voted early and the other 1/2 voted on election day. I do think we get a better turnout because people have more opportunity. However we still get really low turnout in non presidential years.
