I'm in favor of letting people vote over an extended period, but thirty or more days of voting is a bit ridiculous.
If you can't vote over a couple day period, just ask for an absentee ballot.
Should be Election DAY. Not week or month.
I simply don't think we need more than a month. Allowing people to vote before the debates occur is silly.
Wait in line two hours or be able to go when there is no line at all? If we force everyone to all go at the same time it would be too much of a burden on those of us still in the workforce and it would be the jobless welfare queens who decide who wins.
And there you go again with your common sense. If holding polls open longer creates fraud, let's have voting open for just 12 minutes on voting day, between 10:37am and 10:49am. Just common sense, right? Screw the working people who can't get time off, only the retired and self-made (or self-employed) can vote.
When will you learn that "simple common sense" is just simply nonsense? If good sense really were simple and common, we wouldn't be having so many national arguments, would we? No, the reason we have so many policy disagreements is that some people prefer to make well-considered choices based on thorough analysis and critical evaluation, while others are satisfied with making uninformed snap judgments based on simple common sense. It's the Gambler's Fallacy writ large. It's simple common sense that black would be due after a long streak of red. And it's simply wrong.
When you google "community organizer" you get:
a person whose job is to coordinate cooperative efforts and campaigning carried out by local residents to promote the interests of their community."
that says what most of us suspected, that nobody really knows what a community organizer is/does.
When I heard that for example 70% of Af/Am voters in NC use early voting, I felt I now knew what a community organizer does.
I'm just throwing this out there.
Who on earth waits in line that long? I have never had to wait more than 20 minutes or so.
Do we have a right to pizza? Even if we don't, I would like voting as easy as ordering a pizza. Online voting is so possible and inevitable.
