1. that 28 day mark is important for another reason
if your planning on voting early (as i am)... you can vote early starting 28 days out from the election... i voted early the last 3 generals, and this years primary... it means alot to me to have it over rather than sweating lines on election day.. there are a number of sites check with the state or the party for more info..
