If you can vote early, you should vote early. Polling places are often overloaded, usually as an intentional voter suppression tactic. There may be a line even now. If there is a line today, there will be a longer line on Election Day, so go TODAY and bring something to eat, drink, and read while you wait. Even if you can wait all day on Election Day, some of your neighbors can’t, so help them out by going now.
