I never vote early. Too much of a chance for the candidate to be caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy before the election. Or open his/her mouth and say what they really feel about a subject.
In my opinion the only wasted vote is one cast early and the candidate dies in a plane crash days before the election and the voters are then stuck with the spouse by default.
Remember Clayton Williams "rape joke" ? Gave us four years of Ann Richards. How about Todd Aiken in Missouri ?
Richard Murdock in Indiana ?
I haven't done enough research on a few of the races still to decide who to vote for.
I always early vote in the general elections, but for the primaries in a small town, I'll either wait until election day or the end of early voting.
Not encouraged so far with the poll numbers for Cornyn. If anyone's going to get caught with something, hopefully it's him.
