Behavior like that plays directly into the plans of the "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits".

I voted last week at my local library..Walked right in, no lines.
I don't know if this is the first time they've offered early voting or if I just never heard about it before but I'll never wait until voting Tues. again.

The lines for early voting were wrapped around the building at the location I needed to go. I rode by on numerous occasions over the last couple weeks and it was always the same...parking lot full and people in line out the door and around the corner. I am just hoping all my neighbors were the ones voting then, as I am going to the polls tomorrow about 1/2 hour before they open

Unfortunately, none of the candidates seem to be motorcycle riders.

They do lean left and right though.

As an aside. I went to the community center where the polling place was located a few years back in an election long long ago. There was a line about half a block long. I stood there about 15 minutes and started to talk to the other people in line about how nice the day was (living in SoCal at the time) and wondering aloud how long it would take for me to vote. Turns out I was in the right place but the wrong line. I was in a line for free flu shots for seniors. Sheesh!! There was no line to vote.

I guess free flu shots were more important than a national election, but there was a ton of gray and silver haired people in the line that I only took note of after the fact.

We have a local judge up for re-election. His party was once the majority 30 years ago in this area. That party is now in the minority, especially since 2008. This judge is very qualified and has about 20 years experience as a judge, and has never had an opponent.

He now has an opponent running as a member of the now-majority party.
Anyone who knows the candidates knows that re-election is the wise choice. Unfortunately the record turnout expected here could oust a good incumbent due to the attention on the national election.

I point this out as a real example of Bob's statement and advice, if you don't know what you are voting for, then don't vote. Not necessarily don't go vote, but if you don't know the candidates on the ballot, leave that slot blank!
Ignorant people in this case will cast a vote for a member of their favored party, even if they don't even know whose names they are reading on the ballot! This is a real local concern here, and I'm certain the same scenario is occurring all over the US.

I say vote for the person who you think is the best candidate, regardless of party affiliation.
