Let's face it. The poll numbers look good, 'cautious optimism' is the phrase of the day and on 'last debate eve' everyone is still wondering if there will be an 'October Surprise' - an incident big enough to shift the election sentiment back toward Citizen McCain. Well Ol Ty says bump that October Surprise ruckus! After Election 1.0 (2000) and Election 2.0 (2004) voting irregularities, I'm worried about a November 4th, Election 3.0 surprise. In previous postings Ol Ty has pointed out impending Republican hatched shenanigans in the form of election day voter challenges based on foreclosed home lists, trickeration of older, lower income voters, blahda, blahda, blahda..
The good news is that early voting has kicked off in many states (including Illinois) so if you happen to be in one of those states, Ol Ty's advice is to get your vote in now before any okey-dokes can get put in place for 11/04. But if you insist on voting on Election Day, watch this instructional voting video and make sure this doesn't happen to you.
