  •  Just wait till it's taken away in 2016 (0+ / 0-)

    I think vote by mail is a very bad idea.  Voting is a civic duty, it's WORK, and requires real effort.  The easier we make voting, the more we take the work and duty out of it, the less people will be willing to fight to retain that right.

    How hard would it be to suddenly take mail in voting away for the 2016 election?  To tell people "sorry, you actually have to go work to vote this time".  How many will stay home, while the crazy right wing goes out and votes and wins?

    The more we take the effort out of voting, the easeir the future disenfranchisement will be.
