Absentee Voting

This week I voted absentee for the second time in three years. I have to say I love it. Seems like a lot of people love it too. The Star Tribune’s article really only skims the surface of the issue. What isn’t stated is the oppotunity that a lot of poor people will have to actually vote if they vote absentee. Many work all day on election day and don’t get to the polls. If they knew they could do it via mail at their liesure it could significantly raise voter turn-out. And significantly change the political landscape.
