So, I voted. I don’t remember the exact day, but it was sometime in early October. California allows residents to sign up for permanent vote-by-mail. They get their ballot a month in advance and can then mail it back in. You can vote with all the materials in front of you, you don’t have to wait in line, you can mull over your vote for a while and hold your mail-in ballot until the final weekend if you want, or even the final day (you can turn it in to any polling place). And it works extremely well.

Mitt Romney is currently trailing in the polls with only 42 days until the election. That “42 days” number, however, overstates the time he really has left to change the dynamics of the race. Thanks to early voting rules, the actual amount of time he has is significantly less.
