She's already made up her mind and cast her vote for president. Lee, who voted Friday, is one of the hundreds of thousands of people expected to take advantage of laws that allow citizens in some states to go to the polls before Nov. 5. "I work two jobs and have a hard time fitting it in my schedule," said Lee, a 34-year-old elementary school cook. Lee said she voted for President Clinton and wasn't about to change her mind and switch her vote to Republican Bob Dole, Reform Party nominee Ross Perot or one of the other third-party candidates. The last weeks of the campaign The Associated Press Clark County, Nev., citizens enter a voting site Saturday. are unnecessary, she said, because the candidates "just batter against each other and don't tell us anything we don't already know." Early voting differs from absentee voting in several ways. Instead of applying for a ballot, voters can just go to a polling place and vote. They don't need to tell officials why they are voting early, and their ballots are cast just like on Election Day, not sealed or separated from others. A number of states, including Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Tennessee, Nevada and Arizona, have some variation of early voting. In Clark County, Nev., which'I encompasses Las Vegas, early voting started Saturday, including at 1 Meadows Mall. Convenience was cited by sever- 1 1 al people, including those who hadn't planned to vote before Nov. "I was coming over here tp eat anyway, so — since it was here ^ •1 thought I'd vote," said Ernie Campbell, a 60-year-old retiree who didn't want to identify his political affiliation or his favorite' candidate. "I want to make sure F get it done. I felt like this was a good way to avoid lines." Texas election officials say that between one-fifth and one-third of total ballots have been cast early in recent elections. Texas began 1 early voting in 1988. Tennessee election officials are expecting more than 300,000 people to cast their ballots early. The_ state first allowed early voting in 1994. That year, 250,503 people* took part. *t New Mexico also adopted an' early voting law in 1994. Thirteen percent of the total vote that year was cast before Election Day. Toddler killed after father's gesture By The Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. — What began with a father's finger gesture at the car that swerved into his lane ended seconds later when a bullet crashed through his rear window and killed his 2-year-old son. Donald Cherry Sr. said he was driving on a major Nashville thoroughfare Friday night when a group of teen-agers in a white sedan pulled out wide from another road, causing Cherry to swerve. "When I went around them, I flipped them off," said Cherry, 32. Within seconds, his rear window was shattered. "I thought I'd got rear-ended, but the back window was busted out," he said. "I turned around and saw my-son bleeding." How many of these YARD SIGNS have you seen today? Vote November!") Tommye Sexton for 71 si District Representative mi' SrMdlt.
