Interesting fact: not an exemption in New York. In other words without the change to vote by mail Gov. Cuomo made he would have had to vote in person.He should make exemption for elderly for sure.
Why should they be required to take a risk? Wouldn't it just be easier. And isn't that why Republicans fear it?But there's no reason why the majority of people who are at minimal risk of dying from COVID to vote by mail.
Which is why Trump (seen here at his so called protest)
Is voting by mail... out of convenance. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Though when voting is more convenient more people vote:
My point is that mandatory voting would be a more valid policy than Trump's "let's make voting a bitch" policy.What does your hypothetical idea have to do with mail-in voting?
It has been discussed in elections past before Trump and Republicans embraced lies of voter fraud.
There also isn’t any danger of political speech being compelled. People are free to do what they like with their ballots, including turning them in blank.Having the option to not vote is also a right. We should not be making voting mandatory. I have not voted in any previous elections, because I don't feel like either party will make a big difference, I shouldn't have been forced to choose. But now that I see there is a big difference between the two choices, I will exercise my right to vote.
In 1920, Australia had a big problem, less than 60 percent of people were voting. Yeah, a number that's often our high water mark was their alarm bell.
Making voting a holiday had been discussed, moving it to a weekend rather than a Tuesday had been discussed... But you know what policy we got with Republicans "let's make voting a bitch".
In Texas the minute after the Voter Rights Act lost its teeth they pulled voting machines out of minority districts and closed voting stations in universities to lower turn out. This is the Republican party.
