No.  Tongue  

Receipt for recipe might be a regionalism now, but I think that may be a recent development. On Downton Abbey (set in early 20th-century England), the characters would occasionally refer to "receipts" for cooking. (Though I suppose they may be pronouncing "recipe" as "ress-eep.") When my wife took her Victorian mansion cooking class, in Wisconsin, they told us the recipes would have been called "receipts" during the period.

Another example of too great a reliance on what some internet site says.  Kitty bar the door may be a regionalism, and I prefer it even though I'm well aware of the more common "Katy bar the door."

See:

I was delighted that at last someone added the definition of "recipe" to the word "receipt," which is (or was) a regionalism in the southeastern states, with cookbooks entitled "Receipts," according to my personal experience of dining in Georgia.

(I finally found that particular "receipt" regionalism in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, which is slowly gathering my respect.)

Early voting is different from mail-in, absentee ballots. Election day should be election day, not election week or election month. If you can't make it to the polling place on election day, get an absentee ballot and mail it in. But absentee ballots should not be opened or counted until election day.

That's 2.5 (regular 40 hour) weeks, so it may end up being the most painful part of the sentence if the judge is creative.

Doing Rand Paul's yard work?

1)  I worked both early voting and election day this last election.  There would still be people in line to vote if everyone had to wait until election day to vote.  As it was during early voting we had lines 30-40+ deep all day, every day.

This; I've made the mistake of waiting until Election Day to go vote, and what would have been a 5 minute process on the second day of early voting was over an hour because of the line.

I would prefer if no results were published until all of them are in, though; more than once we've lost turnout in local elections due to someone having a solid lead in early voting, then they lost when the Election Day turnout was 90+% against them entirely because so many of their voters figured they didn't need to bother, and the opponent knew exactly how many they needed to drum up.
