UPDATE: More than 37,000 Georgians have already cast ballots during the early voting period ( registration to vote in November ends Monday). An opinion piece in the Savannah Morning News, however, suggests “there is a troubling side of early voting, especially when it starts more than a month outside the day of the election, and this year, of all years, we might just see it come back to haunt us.”
Even if you’re a straight-ticket-voting Republican or a straight-ticket-voting Democrat — as in, come hell or high water — voting early can have repercussions, especially when last-minute news about a candidate may come out that pulls back the veil on an issue of major importance and has the potential to sway an election.
