Last chance for absentee ballot: today!

Tired of standing in line? Even with extended hours? Today, Wednesday Oct. 29, is the last day you can request to vote by mail for the Nov. 4 election.

And if you have already voted by mail, you can check the status of your ballot at this link on the Miami-Dade Elections website. I just checked mine, and am now satisfied that my ballot was received on Oct. 24 and that Barack Obama will be elected president. Those who are bathed in worry that their ballot has been stolen can receive at least some confirmation that the process works.

From today's Miami Herald (link below), this statistic:

Miami-Dade has mailed more than 174,000 absentee ballots and received 107,000 completed absentee ballots through Wednesday, according to the elections office website.

Wednesday is last day to request absentee ballot |
