We Should Have Early In-Person Voting Nationwide

All Americans should have 30 days to cast a vote. The federal government should pay for the cost. If we can afford two wars at the same time and a $780 billion Wall Street bailout, then we can afford early voting.

1. two weeks is early enough, I think

Heck, for those states that only vote on one day, I'd be happy with three or four days of EV. The would relieve a lot of the stress on getting everyone counted.

2. We vote by mail........

here in Washington. It's cool and rainy today so I sat in front of the fire with a cup of tea and filled out my ballot with the aid of an online progressive voter's guide. Plus, once I drop my ballot in the drop-off box I can track it online. It's the only way to go.

3. The entire country needs a vote by mail system complete with tracking.

If politicians truly wanted more citizens to vote, a mail-in system such as this one would be standard nationwide.
