I sit in a state with no early voting. None.
A state with no vote by mail.
A state which requires anyone filing an absentee ballot to swear under penalty of perjury that they cannot go to the polling place due to injury, disability or absence from the district due to work only. (Meaning that if you’re on vacation or away at college you’re technically not supposed to be able to vote via absentee ballot.)
My polling place is meant to accommodate approximately 60 people an hour (if there were 100% turnout) and has two machines, a wholly inaccessible layout and no chairs for those waiting in line.
And I see people in Ohio, Texas and Florida fighting to get back early voting days and voting machines and I wonder what the hell is wrong in my state that we don’t have and have never had any of these things and no one, including the (admittedly outnumbered) democrats in our legislature, has ever stated any inclination to change that.
Our Republicans did push through a voter ID law, though.
Pennsylvania. The land that voting rights forgot.
