Why is early voting bad? It should be easier not harder to vote.
One reason it is bad is that it is inconsistent and if we had honest judges and politicians our entire voting system would be seen as a violation of the equal protection clause.
Having been a poll watcher, during early voting, they have a lot more days to commit voter fraud without getting caught.
It's already super easy to vote. You can now register during early voting and vote the same day, at least you can in this state. They don't check whether you have the right to vote or not. Felons on parole are not supposed to vote. Non citizens are not supposed to vote, but they do not require a birth certificate or citizen papers. Yet to get a job, we have to show these papers. If they don't have the papers they shouldn't be able to vote.
Early voting is bad when it’s extended to the point that it’s essentially unsupervised. If you have six weeks of early voting, who’s going to show up as poll watchers etc. for that entire time.
I’m not against it for a few days just the extended.
Sorry, but it should NOT be easier to vote. If one can’t do one’s civic duty once every 4 years then tough cookies.
It’s a great opportunity to teach civics to your kids too. I took my son to vote with me. It’s just not the same when your son or daughter just watches you fill out a form.
Actually, I’ve come to the point where the harder it is to vote the better. Less chance of voter fraud too if everybody shows up on one day and ONLY one day.
