Dang democrats trying to ruin democracy by letting people vote.

Why is this possibly an argument? In the UK postal votes have been around for ages, for any reason. It just makes sense. I used one last election because I wasn’t at home on the day. Uplifting news seems indirectly depressing nowadays

I fail to understand why in a 250 year old democracy, election day is not a national holiday? Here in India, both national and state elections are a holiday and employers are required to give paid leave to their workers.

As an American who likes freedom. This is fantastic and the same thing should happen in all 50 states.
