    It is not fair that Democrats who tend to dominate in urban areas are allowed to have almost 2 weeks of early voting. The suburbs and rural areas who tend to vote Republicans only have one day to vote, thus imagine if there was bad weather or the like on that one day.

    helen,

    not true. all voters can vote early in early voting states. and given the long lines on election day, it is crucial to make voting available early so that people can adjust their schedules and have their voices heard.

    there should be a two week window in all states so that as many people as possible can register their vote.

    voting should be made easier. people shouldn’t have to jump through numerous discouraging hoops just to have their voices heard in a democracy.
