Early voting in state of Georgia breaks record .

The Daily Nation is reporting that early voter turnout in my home state of Georgia has broken a record with 2 million voters taking advantage of the right to vote before Nov. 4th.
Of course, the article attributes this to an enthusiasm over Obama.
How have they determined that bit of news? When one registers to vote in Georgia, we do not register by party affiliation. One cannot say,rightly, if the majority of the early voters are Democrat or Republican.
Another odd thing about the story in the Daily Nation. The photo accompanying the story is actually from early voting in Colorado....not Georgia.
They could have just have easily posted the photo I used.....with the caption, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."
