This early voting thing is bullshit. Why does it exist?
That shit happened in Ohio in 2008. Gave up and just went on election day. Don't like waiting then don't vote or get an absentee ballot like I did.
So they can vote twice, or more.
"Vote early, vote often."
Yet people have no problem waiting in line for the apple 5.
I don't think a suit to extend hours qualifies as voting being in a mess.. News can't wait to find even the smallest glitch in Florida..
I think early voting is a good idea. Fuck that archaic shit of one day per year. I'm also in favor of on-line voting. Anything that makes it easier to cast a vote = more gooder.
One thumb print, one vote. And change it to a Sunday.
The Christians would have a fit at you disrespecting the holy day with your sectarian rituals.
This isn't a story... they allowed people to take an absentee ballot and drop it off later. Fill it out in your fucking car and take it back to them.
People have an issue with anything more difficult than texting for your favorite American Idol contestant.
They can vote after their brainwashing session.
I wish we would do the right thing and amend the Constitution. Make the 28th Amendment have the election on a nice summer day in June on a Saturday. All the young people out of school, almost all the working people off of work or working less than a full day on Saturday, the weather would be nice and help commuters and the elderly. Why is the first Tuesday in November such a sacred thing? It is the most immediate thing you can do to make voting easier and boost turnout. Fuck November voting on a school day and a work day, it is fuckin' dumb.
Didn't Carlin say election day should be on April 15th?
