Before you lecture us about being a traitor to this country read the Constitution.
Clause 4: Election day
People should all vote on the same day so they are not impacted by the results of early voting. People who know the outcome ahead of time are less likely to vote.
The argument that people are too lazy to vote on the same day and need more convenience doesn't cut it for me. Far as I know you can drive your Medicaid paid for scoter with your fat ass on it up the ramp of your handicapped accessible voting place on the same day that everyone else votes on.
Yes, an election day, back when the population was maybe 20% of what it is now. If 90% of the voting populace decided to vote on one day, do you really believe the voting system could handle it? Look at all the problems we have now in some states, and that's with barely half of eligible voters voting.
You have to deal with things the way they really ARE, not how you WANT them to be. If you're worried about election results influencing the vote, then withhold election information until all the results are in.
