wikipedia:
The Electoral College consists of 538 popularly elected representatives who formally select the President and Vice President of the United States.[1] In 2008, it will make this selection on December 15. The Electoral College is an example of an indirect election.
Rather than directly voting for the President and Vice President, United States citizens cast votes for electors. Electors are technically free to vote for anyone eligible to be President, but in practice pledge to vote for specific candidates[2] and voters cast ballots for favored presidential and vice presidential candidates by voting for correspondingly pledged electors.[3] Most states allow voters to choose between statewide slates of electors pledged to vote for the presidential and vice presidential tickets of various parties; the ticket that receives the most votes statewide 'wins' all of the votes cast by electors from that state. U.S. presidential campaigns concentrate on winning the popular vote in a combination of states that choose a majority of the electors, rather than campaigning to win the most votes nationally.
Each state has a number of electors equal to the number of its Senators and Representatives in the United States Congress. Additionally, Washington, D.C. is given a number of electors equal to the number held by the "least populous" state.[4] U.S. territories are not represented in the Electoral College.

example: $1500 mortgage note
pay $750 on the 1st and $750 on the 15th
OR pay $1500 extra a year

has the same effect! gotta love an amortization schedule.
yeah - we've always done stuff like that - all cars paid off early, and houses paid down - but we also paid cash for our son's college education so he'd have no debt, and sank a lot of moolah into buying the business - so the house is low priority as far as paying something off.... but for those who even can tack on an extra $50 or $100 on their home or car loans - it all goes to the principal, so you can pay things down significantly! And once you start, you won't want to stop - it's habit-forming! lois

so how does that work - the guy admits to voting more than once, even if he's joking - don't they have to like shut the poll down or investigate or something? or does 'the system' catch that later?

Since the returns are starting to come in, its only fair to both parties that we close this thread. Only 1461 days until the next one.
