Get your (early) vote on!

Early voting continues today after a week of record-breaking voting in Hillsborough, Pinellas and other Florida counties. It's not just Florida — other states are seeing the same large turnout.

As of last night, over 35,000 Hillsborough County voters have performed their civic duty early, no doubt helped by Barack Obama's push for early voting at his rally on Monday. That day, over 8,000 residents voted early. In Pinellas County 11,154 voters have turned out. That low number is no doubt a result of Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark's de-emphasis on early voting and reduction of early voting sites.

So if you already know who you voting for and want to avoid the madness that will be Election Day, consider early voting on your way to work this morning. Early voting in Florida lasts until Nov. 1. For your early voting sites:
