    There is a sick, twisted side to me that wants this election to be Popular Vote for Bush while the electoral college goes to Kerry, just so the Republicans can feel the anguish the Democrats did four years ago and the Democrats can go thru four years of hearing that their President wasn't "elected".

    If you're in Ann Arbor, I don't think there's any question as to WHO they're voting for. Not that it's a bad thing. Over the past week on campus and around town and at the game, this place is overflowing with Kerry/Edwards sticker, buttons, shirts, signs, etc.... I can count on one hand the number of any type of Bush/Cheney stuff.

    Also, prop 2 is a hot issue here in Ann Arbor. It's not getting much support. We have a system you can go through to send emails out to all B-School students. It's not supposed to be used for anything non-school related. Yesterday we got a very detailed message someone sent out using this system telling us all why prop 2 is such a bad thing and why we should vote NO. It's the first time I've ever got an email like this through the school's syste. My guess is the person who sent it out got a talking to.

    I can't confirm the story but, I was told that people for example were registered in Ohio, and in Florida, as they have dual residences, they would cast an absentee ballot in Ohio and actually vote in Florida. Signs were posted at our polling place, that read that voting more than once was illegal, 4th degree felony.

    Surely your Indiana/Ohio example would not be illegal if they vote in one place.

    Someone that is more aquainted with the laws would be better to answer your questions.

    My neighborhood has mostly Bush signs in their lawns. I need to find a better neighborhood. :mhcky21:

    I'm in Dearborn, where it's fairly split (depends which street you're driving down), but I can only imagine the scene in Ann Arbor...not that that's a bad thing.

    I have a feeling the weather will play a role in Ohio. I dont see many kids standing out in the rain for P-Diddy
