Absent any other knowledge--

Just as Ohio goes in absentee voting, so goes the nation if you compared 2010 with the same kind of election in 2006.
Through this week it’s been about 6 million early voters nationally casting ballots in the November general election, which is up from 4 million four years ago around the country, USA Today reports.
That matches what elections boards said about two weeks ago in Lake, Geauga and Cuyahoga counties.
But the figures don’t yet get near matching the record number of absentee voters in the presidential election year of 2008 in Ohio and other states.
Still, let’s see what happens as time goes by.

I voted absentee, just like most of my friends did. The only candidate who gave me a call when I got my ballot was Eric Bednarcik. Don't other politicians care about what we think anymore?
