  •  this is a very good idea (0+ / 0-)

    People don't realize how much of this state is rural, meaning for lots of people there is no easy access to a county building. Also, it makes sense to increase the convenience as much as possible.  Every little bit helps.

    This initiative would have Republican support as well, since many of those rural voters are conservative. There was a "scandal" in the last election over a Democratic official initially instructing the postmaster not to deliver ballots without postage.

      I think this should have bipartisan support - for the urban two-job single mothers, to the remote conservative ranchers.  Voting is a right, and seeing as how this shouldn't cost all that much, it should easily garner attraction and support from both sides of the aisle.

        If you believe in democracy, then you should support increased voting access to everyone, regardless of their political ideology. The benefit to pursuing this issue is that makes voting rights a bipartisan issue, which is a rare gift these days.
