Over 135,000 Early Votes Cast...

...But don't ever stop, keep going.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution Political Insider reports today that more than 135,000 Georgians have voted early with about five weeks left until Election Day.

As of Monday, 135,412 ballots had been cast in Georgia for the Nov. 4 general election, whether by absentee or early in-person voting. [Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution, "Has the Obama surge begun? Nearly 40 percent of early votes cast by African-Americans", October 1, 2008]

That leaves approximately 5,354,083 people who haven't voted, so we've got to keep going until every last Georgian has stepped into that voting booth and cast their ballot.
