Eric Dean, a 19-year-old Purdue University sophomore, casts an early ballot in this year's election on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, at the Marion County Clerk's office in Indianapolis as his father, Jeff Dean, right, watches his son, who was voting in his first presidential election.

In regards to Jay Evensen's column, "Early voting for 2012 election has become ridiculous political tool," (Oct. 14): I am one of those early voters. I have known for a long who I was going to vote for. Who would like to see money spent on ads for elections instead of put to a more worthy cause?
