Many states (mostly red-leaning) intentionally make it hard to vote. Because the people who can't do things like take a day off work are the ones who usually vote Democrat. I was actually just talking about this with my ILs last night. I don't know why we don't have the option to vote by mail, in person, or online. Just like you renew your car registration. Well, I do know why (to try to keep certain groups from voting), but I think it's BS. We have a very big, very close election in my state, and the local news did a story about how people who are in the hospital have no options to vote. Can't go to the polls, and didn't have the foresight to plan their emergency and request to vote by mail.
