There are too many wrongs in early voting, other than the absentee ballots. Too many Republican Secretary States controlling who and when these votes can be counted. In back rooms where these ballots are kelp, some paid employees.....no doubt a Republican sorting out Democrat ballots and destroyed.

I will be voting next week...and it looks as though NC is going to be as red as it was in 2010. The Koch Brothers have been funding lots of anti-liberal mailings, just like they did before. I throw them in the trash. :evil:
