TRAIL MIX: Lots Vote Early Today, Palin Gets Doctor's Note, and 'Hussein' Who?


Rosenberg, Suzanne, Editor & Publisher


In today's final installment of news from newspaper campaign blogs: Gov. Palin releases a medical letter, not records, at the last possible minute and is cleared by an independent commission of Troopergate. And more. See links at bottom. Palin releases note from her doctor and is cleared in second 'Troopergate' probeThe Swamp The Chicago Tribune By Jason George A two-page letter from Gov. Palin's physician was released late on the eve of the election stating that the Alaska governor "has no major medical problems" and is "physically fit." Although the letter has no supporting documents accompanying it, it stated that Palin has good blood pressure and pulse and glows about Palin's health.

He points out that in Colorado too, 56% of registered voters cast their ballots early in person or by absentee ballot. If the race concludes closer than most of the polls predict, the McCain campaign has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Virginia demanding that the State Board of Elections accept absentee ballots from members of the military received by Nov. 14, as opposed to the usual Nov. 4.

Ohioans are voting early tooThe CaucusThe New York TimesBy Michael Powell According to Michael Powell of the Caucus, at least 200,000 people voted early in Ohio, either in person or by mail as of Nov. 2. On Nov. 3, however, voters were still waiting in long lines to vote in Ohio -- setting records for the number of early votes cast in Columbus, Ohio's capital. …
