There is a law in Florida that requires each county to allow voters to vote up to two weeks early. Orange County had over 10 early voting locations. Getting people to vote early was a big part of our Get Out The Vote program...in the end it actually worked. Orange County ended up being won by John Kerry. The Republicans did a fantastic job of getting people to vote absentee and Democrats did a fantastic job of getting people to vote early.
On the first day of early voting, LCV teamed up with ACORN to host an early voting awareness rally. We met up in Lake Eola and then marched to the early voting site in the downtown library. There was a ton of media, including a TV crew from Japan.
Here is an article leading up to the Early Voting rally.
