Will Voter Turnout Break Records?

Experts are divided on just how big this week's voter turnout will be, but they seem to be in agreement that it will be highest in decades. Some say it will be the largest since 1968, others believe it will blow 1960's records out of the water, or maybe, just maybe, be the largest in a century.

Early voting levels point to a big turnout, but that could just be the same voters casting ballots earlier instead of more voters planning on visiting the polls. Weather could turn out to be a factor, but realistically we won't know until Tuesday.

According to the AP, the McCain campaign released a strategy memo this week saying, "turnout is going to go through the roof" and predicted that more than 130 million people would vote. Obama's camp said, "we think turnout is going to be higher than that" but didn't provide a specific number.

In 2004, 122.3 million people voted for president. Do you think more people will hit the polls this year?
