    Default Obama campaign gives Florida voters bad info about early voting...

    Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley is warning voters about potentially misleading early voting information after his office received hundreds of inquiries from voters Tuesday wanting to cast early ballots.Early voting in Florida doesn't begin until Oct. 27 and lasts through Nov. 3. Corley traced one of the complaints to a robocall from Organizing for America, an arm of the Democratic Party.
    OFA spokesman Eric Jotkoff said the call refers to a program where voters can request an absentee ballot at the elections office and fill it out on the spot. Corley said that program is known as a "carry-out absentee ballot," which is available now. But he said some voters specifically mentioned early voting.

    "It is causing, I would say, massive confusion," Corley said. "The problem is the message going out is severely misleading."

    Jotkoff provided the Times with a copy of the robocall script, which does not use the term "early voting." This issue arose a day after Corley took a complaint from a voter about an OFA volunteer who initially said he worked for the elections office. The man told the voter there was a problem with her voter registration status, though officials confirmed her registration is fine.

    Corley said voters should call his office toll-free at 1-800-851-8754 if they have questions about their registration status. Voters can also check that information at pascovotes.com.

    How I long for the old days where you could "mob up" and have votes cast using deceased people's names.............

    Where have all the good times gone?

    I get that voting is a basic fundamental right, but the thing that has always bothered me is this: If you have to go to these lengths to remind people, bus people, or otherwise coerce people to get off their ass and vote, what are the odds that vote will be a well-informed one?

    That might explain why our government is the way it is.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
