I always do early voting. Tuesday is dance class for me. Our polls open at 6:30 but as close as I am to my precinct, I can't drag my lazy butt out of bed early enough to get there and get to work on time. Dance class is over at 6:30 and by the time I get home at 7, polls are closing. So I vote early - I'll go to the library on my lunch hour. Much easier for me.

I vote in person at the polling location for Presidential elections. For primaries and off-year elections, I vote absentee.

|Posted: 10/14/2012 9:53:00 PM|On election day. The voting place for our area is actually just down the street from our house at our local community center. So we all walk down there to go vote. The kids think it's neat, they get some exercise, and they get tons of attention (because apparently people working at the polls like to see toddlers "voting", and extra stickers. I just like the way it feels after voting on election day. I don't know how to describe it.

On Election Day. The only exception was a mail only ballot for a school parcel tax.
I like the feeling of going to the polls and sharing in the combined sense of purpose.

In person on election day. I love it... lines and inconvenience and all.

Mail in - I love the convenience of it.
Not sure how one votes if they are homeless - I'd assume there must be options.

We vote in person.

Question, for those of you in Oregon or Washington, how do the homeless vote? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I don't know about these states. But in Hawaii and Oklahoma the majority of the homeless are not able to vote. In order to get a voter registration card you have to have a mailing address. In order to have a mailing address you have to be able to prove you live at an addressable place. It is not possible to just go sign up and pay the fees on a post office box. You have to have a photo id and a rental contract or pay the utilities at an address. Which also means many don't receive services they could use, like food stamps, because they don't have a place to receive mail.
A small percentage are able to use a relative's or friend's address for mail. But not that many.
eta: I see your question is in relation to several posters saying mail in is their state's only option. Reality is, for many other states where in person voting is done the homeless are still blocked from the process by virtue of not having a home as defined by the US Postal service's addressing system.

|Posted: 10/15/2012 3:32:16 AM|I've voted on election day once and absentee twice. We just moved to Washington, so I guess we'll be mail-in. I would much rather vote on election day.

Mail-in. I'm usually working at a polling station a couple of hours away from my registered polling place, so I wouldn't get to vote at all otherwise.

In NJ, homeless need only provide an address of a contact point. It need not be their legal address, since that would, of course, disenfranchise them.

We don't have all of those options - absentee is only for if you are not in town on election day, or are physically unable to get to the polls. Absentee = mail-in here, and there is no early voting.

I vote in person on Election Day, but I am voting early this year as I am working as an Election official so I won't be able to vote in person. (I am assigned to work a different precinct.)
Very long day (5:30 am to 7:30 pm).

|Posted: 10/15/2012 8:22:33 AM|I vote on election day. My 5yo DD and I get up early, so we are there when the hall opens and she waits in line with me. Then she gets to have a donut for a treat on the way to work
Doesn't make any sense, but I would be afraid my vote wouldn't be counted if I were to do it any other way. Not that it matters, as my hubby cancels out my vote anyway.

dh and I are both permanent mail in ballots, otherwise we wouldn't vote. We should be getting our ballots next week.
