Literally home is where the heart is. All our representatives and senators couldn't be reelected otherwise usually being in D.C.Quote: billryan
A better question would he should be have to vote absentee or should he be allowed to register and vote in Florida?
As he spends more time there, why shouldn't be vote there?
I attended a school in a small town in upstate NY. Even the students who lived off campus were denied the right to register and vote locally.
those that wait till election day to vote are the same people doing their taxes on April 15 :-)
1/2 of Florida voters voted early :-)
We may be evolving to a practice of fewer and fewer voting on election day
We may get to the point that in early voting states, those that wait till election day to vote are the same people doing their taxes on April 15 :-)
I don't like that they release information on who has voted early. In Nevada, all we hear is how Democrats and Hispanics have turned out in record numbers.
I don't think any information should be allowed until the polls close.
John Rolston has done a series of articles about how based on early voting, Trump can't win Nevada and without it he can't win the Presidency. Articles like this can make people feel there vote isn't needed.
Oregon has been 100% vote by mail for almost 20 years, and partially for almost 30. You're automatically registered at the DMV when you get your drivers' license. And since 2000, with over 20M ballots cast, there have been roughly 13 cases of "voter fraud." Most of those were honest mistakes like signing your spouse's ballot envelope rather than actual malicious fraud. Because yes, they check signatures. One critical benefit of vote-by-mail is the ability for election officials to catch signature mismatches prior to election day -- this happened to a friend last week. She got called into the county office to re-verify that the signature on her ballot was actually hers.Quote: ams288
I said this in the 2016 Election thread and I'll say it again here:
In the next four years, Republicans will launch an all out assault on early voting.
Democrats do better when more people vote. Republicans know this, and will try to do anything to stop it.
And of course, they will use nonexistent "voter fraud" as their excuse for eliminating early voting. They're a one trick pony.
