here, in Iowa City, my vote never counts anyway...
Imo, the early voting scheme was and is never intended as anything other than an easily exploitable method of voter fraud.
Democracy, ultimately, is mob rule and an invitation to tyranny.
Early voting, instant registration, no ID voting, absentee voting - all just help bring the dangers even closer.
Well at least early voting keeps Illary ensconced at the Dem nominee. If the Dems changed horses at this stage they would face the logistical ballot change problems but also, many Dems would have wasted their vote on a person out of the race.
I have better things to do than stand in line. I even go over to the Mexican side of town to early vote after having had to stand in line 15 minutes to early vote on the Republican side of town. And several of the early voting locations are a lot more convenient than my designated voting place which is the required location on election day.
The problem with early voting that I have observed is that many times the "shine has worn off" a candidate as the campaign season progresses. Many voters get "buyer's remorse".
A classic example is the hildabeast. Many early voters are marking by rote. It is very apparent that her health is rapidly becoming an issue. Early voters lose the option of a write-in or, if the ballot nominee changes, a chance to vote for the newly selected candidate.
Sounds simple if you are voting for Trump but the neverending lawsuits that would be filed on behalf of "disenfranchised" early voters could delay election result certification for months.
Before you say it is not possible, consider how the courts have eagerly injected themselves into recent elections and how many findings are appealed all the way to the top of the state and federal courts.
I’m trying to think of a “pro”.
