Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Regular readers will notice that DVN is growing longer and longer as the election gets closer and closer. There will be a time, probably within a week of the election, when DVN will just be too long to be of use in a once-a-day publication. When that happens, as I have done in previous years, I will split DVN into a "Morning Edition" and "Evening Edition".

One of the issues that bears watching is voter registrations. The news has contained many articles, of late, about the huge influx of voter registrations. Counties are under the gun to get the registrations completed and filed into the data base. The big question is will they be able to do it in the time they have left? How many voters who filed new registrations or changes in their registrations are going to end up being told they have to vote on a provisional ballot? And then either not have that ballot counted because the county has decided not to count provisional ballots because they won't make any difference in the outcome as we have heard in the past; OR, have their ballot not counted because the county never did get the voters application processed?

Remember please, do NOT use the straight party option if you get that option. Take the extra few minutes and vote each race on the ballot. ...
